CAI Illinois is the Illinois chapter of Community Associations Institute, an international membership organization dedicated to building better communities. CAI knows that the best community associations have the best boards. The best board members are educated and prepared to lead their communities successfully.
Leading your association is challenging, and CAI's Condo/HOA Q&A is here to support you and help answer your questions. You can access a wealth of additional information and resources on the CAI Illinois website.

Determining which type of management is best for your HOA is an important board decision for associations of all sizes.
The best solution for managing your condominium will depend on the size of your community, the resources that are available to you and the amount of effort volunteers are willing to contribute. However, all associations can benefit from some level of professional support to keep your community running smoothly.
For small associations with limited resources and low volunteer engagement, Haus Financial Services is an excellent option. Learn about how HausFS can help here.

Association unit owners and residents depend on board members to make informed decisions, act fairly, operate in good faith, and manage the community within the scope of their authority.
Membership on a board is a serious responsibility. Board members should attend meetings, review materials, be attentive to community concerns, ask questions, and work through established procedures.
Check out these best practices to help the board operate efficiently and effect change when and where needed.
In 2021, the Assessor replaced a decades-old mainframe computer that integrated with other government agencies to issue real estate tax bills.
Unfortunately, the new system had a lot of issues. Data errors and missing data caused substantial delays in the completion of the Assessor’s 2021 appeal work.
Since the Assessor is the first step in the process, downstream government agencies are unable to complete their work on time, causing substantial delays in mailing 2021 second installment tax bills.
