Update 3/23/2020: (click to view the full message from the Executive Director…)


WMCCAI is monitoring the outbreak of the COVID-19 Coronavirus and its impact on our members. As we make changes to programs, we will post here. We encourage our members and the community associations industry in general to follow the latest guidance and updates issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  

CAI understands that members, homeowners, board members, community association managers, management company executives, and business partners may have questions about prevention, containment, classes, and events. It is important to recognize, however, that CAI, its chapters, and individual members are not health care professionals. The CDC and other qualified health officials should continue to be the primary source of current information and guidance. 

Committee & Board Meetings: Effective immediately, all chapter committee meetings will be held via conference call until further notice (or canceled if necessary). The chapter staff liaison will be in touch to provide the conference call number or cancellation information before your committee meeting date. If you want to be added to a committee roster, please email eschell@caidc.org 

Programs and Events: All chapter events scheduled for March and April 2020 are postponed. Chapter staff is working with our venues, speakers and sponsors to find new dates in 2020. Once the new dates are determined, we will notify all pre-registered attendees and update the chapter website and social media channels. Attendee registrations will transfer to the re-scheduled date. For questions about chapter events, email events@caidc.org. NOTE: Thus applies to WMCCAI chapter events only. For PMDP class status or other CAI national events, please visit www.caionline.org.

Chapter Office Operations: The chapter staff is working in the office in a normal manner. The office is open for members if you need to come for business. Email info@caidc.org if you have any questions. 


05/21/2020: All three jurisdictions served by WMCCAI are starting to re-open in phases. For the phased plans, click the following links. If you need more specific guidance on how these phases impact your communities operations, please contact your manager or association attorney.
