From the Editor...Just when you thought an angry resident was the most unpredictable force facing your association, Mother Nature stormed into your community with a fierce display of her own!
The storms that pounded the Valley in the fall of 2014 will likely go down in the history books and also become a source of community folklore for generations to come: Remember when we went boating in the greenbelt? Remember when a swimming pool suddenly appeared in our neighbors yard? Remember when the board member got stuck underwater on the I-17 and couldnt make the meeting? (This last one actually happened to me!)
While the monsoon season undoubtedly spawned many interesting tales, it also caused extensive damage from which some communities are still recovering. As our goal is to keep you safe from the storm, this issue of Community Resource is filled with tips for communities, individuals and businesses to use before, during and after experiencing the forces of nature.
The Magazine Committee wishes everyone a Happy (and safe and healthy) New Year!
Jessica Maceyko, Esq., on behalf of the CAI-CAC Magazine Committee
Im impressed with all that has happened within this organization over the past several years. I think its important that we glance in the rear view mirror from time to time and remember our successes and challenges. While it is important to look in the rear view mirror from time to time, we should spend the bulk of our time looking out the windshield watching where were going and making plans to get there.
In our CAI chapter, we are fortunate to have many great volunteer leaders some are association board members, some managers, and some business partners. You have devoted many hours and your skills and expertise to make the Central Arizona Chapter successful. I would like to thank you for all of your continued efforts.
I issue the challenge for every member of our chapter to be involved this next year. Let us all see your qualities that make you great. Help us to see the vision of where were going over the next several years and help us plan how to get there.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the events, activities and luncheons, but I especially look forward to serving with all of you to build wonderful community associations and leaders.
