Gold Star Awards: A Chance to Celebrate Your Success

Jul 31, 2017

If you manage a community that has a financially sound budget, has completed a Reserve Study within the past 5 years, is funding their reserves according to Reserve recommendations, and treats all residents as stakeholders in the community - we want you!  

Help us recognize the daily blood, sweat, and tears efforts that you and your board members put into maintaining a financially stable community. Be the envy of your neighboring communities by planting that Gold Star sign at your front entrance to attract everyone who drives by - especially new buyers! Encourage board members to utilize the educational programs and resources that CAI offers. Be a part of this select group of outstanding communities that establish excellent standards, encourage community involvement, maintain fiscal responsibility, and improve the quality of life for community residents.

The fall nomination period for new or renewal applications is from August 1st thru October 1st with Gold Stars awarded at the annual Holiday Party in December.  

Not a member of CAI? 
You don't need to be a member of CAI to apply for Gold Star (although we think it's a good idea for you to join). In fact, we think it's such a good idea that you become a member of CAI that completing a Gold Star application provides a one year courtesy membership for one of your board members. How cool is that! This is a great way to introduce your community to the value of being a Gold Star Community as well as being a member of CAI.
