About North Gulf Coast Chapter of CAI

Our local Chapter of CAI provides education, networking, resources and advocacy for community association professionals and volunteers who serve the associations, as well as for those who provide services and products to community associations. Our non-profit chapter has over 400 members which include Community Association Managers, Association Management Companies, Volunteer Leaders and Business Partners.  We cover the Panhandle from Tallahassee to Perdido Key (Alabama/Florida border).  We are one of eight Florida chapters that serve all stakeholders in community associations.  We are governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership.  Every month, we have a lunch program in three locations:  Perdido Key, Destin and Panama City Beach.  This year we added quarterly lunches in Santa Rosa Beach (30A).  We hosted a Spring Conference and Expo (March 17, 2021)  and will host a Fall Education Conference.   In addition, we plan an annual charity golf tournament which benefits local charities and helps to fund our Scholarships for CAMs.  We celebrate the new board and a new year at our January Awards Dinner.  All membership setup and renewal goes through CAI Headquarters' website.  Local events are promoted and registration takes place here on our website.   Please consider joining our chapter to take advantage of all the benefits of membership.
