King of Prussia, PA.: Robert A. Travis, CIRMS, CPIA, Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Community Association Underwriters of America, in Newtown, Pennsylvania, took office January 1 as the new President of the Pennsylvania and Delaware Valley Chapter of Community Associations Institute.

Travis, along with other members of the chapter’s leadership, were elected by the chapter Board of Directors at the December 12 Board Meeting. Travis has been involved in community association insurance and risk management for 27 years and has been an active volunteer with CAI for nearly as long. Travis served as president of the former Northeast Pennsylvania Chapter of CAI in 1994 and has served on CAI’s National Board of Directors as well as their Business Partners Council.  He has been a member of CAI’s National Faculty for 17 years.

 “I look forward to working with the chapter leadership, board members, staff and dozens of chapter volunteers as we continue to bring information, resources and critical educational services to homeowners as well as community association managers. Our goal is to build better communities, and help residents of community associations to protect the value of their most important asset, their home,” Travis said.

Brian A. Friel, CIC, CIRMS, will serve as the chapter’s President-elect for 2013. Friel is a partner with Smith Insurance Associates in Spring House, PA. Mary Ann Mulfino, CMCA, Executive Director of Wentworth Property Management Corp. in Valley Forge, is the chapter vice president. Mitchell Frumkin, PE, RS, president of Kipcon, Inc. in North Brunswick, NJ, will serve as Treasurer and Kevin McGrath, PCAM, president of Benjamin Cobrin & Co. in Narberth, PA will serve as Secretary.
