One of the major goals of WVOHOA is to be recognized as a Community Associations Institute Chapter [CAI] in West Virginia. At this time there are no WV chapters.

FACT: WV Chapter of CAI – For those who attended the Community Association Day August 13,  2011, it was apparent that WV state legislation is needed to address many of the problems facing WV HOA’s. Individuals and HOA’s can join the Community Associations Institute (CAI). A portion of the CAI membership dues are given to the chapter to hire a staff person to address local needs and once there is a chapter in WV, the CAI legislative staff will begin identifying the existing WV laws hampering HOA operations. 

EXAMPLE for review: State  CAI CHAPTERS

WVOHOA is working very hard to gain at least 50 CAI members so we can assist homeowners as a WV Chapter. CAI has national and international recognition and strong presence, they are a 501(c)4 which places them at the federal level to lobby for and on behalf of homeowners and their respective associations. At this time we have several CAI members within WVOHOA. Without CAI it is a difficult struggle for homeowner organizations such as WVOHOA – WV has never had anything like our growing Organization and they are very watchful of us these days as our membership increases. We are becoming visible in Charleston and working hard with understanding WV Code 36B UCIOA to protect HOAs. WV HOAs are no longer just sitting by the side remaining as a self sufficient servitude and paying tax – HOAs are requiring representation, laws that are fair and a voice in our state. CAI has helped us learn and together we will become a strong group of homeowners, after all, our homes are the largest investment we’ll ever make.

Respectfully, WVOHOA Membership Chairman

While joining CAI on your own is important, joining your entire board ensures you are making informed decisions- and an excellent way to help your board members achieve the results, respect and recognition they deserve.
