CAI National recently released some interesting statistics related to community associations. In 2014, it was estimated that there are 9,100 community associations in Colorado, resulting in an 11th place ranking. Florida and California took 1st and 2nd positions with 47,100 and 43,300 community associations respectively.
Why does this matter to you? I think it matters because our 9,100 community associations are responsible for approximately 1,500,000 people being involved in associations. That is about ½ of the estimated population of the Denver metropolitan area! As a result, whether you are a manager or a board member, your role in your association impacts a significant number of Coloradoans. What do you want to be remembered for in terms of your service to your residents and community?
