Laurie Poole, president of CAI’s College of Community Association Lawyers’ Board of Governors, wants to help women attorneys earn respect and support wellness this year.
Behind every courageous woman is another waiting to find her opportunity to shine. All we need is people who will listen, to feel valued, the courage to be honest and, more importantly, the ability to recognize the moments we shouldn’t let slip by.
As community associations become increasingly diverse, so too should their civility efforts. CAI’s Civility Pledge encourages associations to find common ground and build a lasting framework to facilitate conversations around complex issues.
Every community association requires a set of governing documents to provide its legal framework and operation. CAI has a new resource to help attorneys, board members, and community managers when drafting or amending provisions that govern a community.
Technology has facilitated our lives, but also affects how we communicate. It’s important to make face-to-face time a priority and be more mindful to engage with others, regardless of format, with respect and civility.
