Online Solutions for the Community Association Industry.


Founded in 1973, CAI (Community Associations Institute) was formed to deal with problems with association management. It was an educational organization then, but CAI made substantial changes in 1992 to its structure and became a business trade group primarily to lobby state legislatures. In 2005, CAI dropped its membership category for HOAs since, presumably, HOAs were consumers, users of CAI services - and don't belong in a tax benefited group whose aim is to support the business interests of its members.

AtHomeNet offers our website service to any Community Associations Institute Chapter to show our support for the education of managers and board members in the best practices of the community association industry. Our sites are user friendly, progressive, and employ the latest technology available. If your Community Associations Institute Chapter would like to register for AtHomeNet's Free CAI Sponsorship program, please contact us by email at [email protected] or phone at 1-800-556-7852.
