Commit to Community Association Research

In honor of 50 fabulous years of CAI’s impact on the lives of tens of millions of homeowners living in and working for condominiums, housing cooperatives, and homeowners associations, the Foundation commissioned a unique, limited edition, commemorative pin to celebrate a commitment to community association research. The first 1,000 people who contribute $50 or more to the “Committed to Community Association Research” campaign will receive this limited-edition pin. The artwork with the message “I am Committed” was designed to commemorate 50 years of CAI.
