Announcing the Charitable Outreach Committee
This year, CAI-MN members are considering the following questions:
1. Is there a better way to do what we do?
2. How can we make CAI more valuable and fun?
We are looking for opportunities for growth and improvement, implementing good ideas and giving credit to CAI members who propose them.
Recently, Cliff Kurth, Managing Partner of Asset Restoration, contacted CAI and suggested that we establish a committee to champion the cause of charitable outreach within the CAI-MN membership and give back to our community. His desire is to spread a passion for charitable outreach among community association volunteer leaders, association managers and business partners. His vision is to establish CAI-MN as the nation’s leading CAI chapter in dollars and support given back to the community. Including charitable outreach in CAI-MN’s activities is a better way to accomplish CAI’s mission to inspire professionalism, effective leadership and responsible citizenship. Charitable outreach will make CAI more valuable and fun for its members. And, quite frankly, Cliff was not going to accept "no” for an answer!
On July 17, the CAI-MN Board of Directors adopted a charter for a Charitable Outreach Committee with the following main purposes:
With the board’s approval, I have appointed Cliff Kurth to serve as the first chairperson of the Charitable Outreach Committee. The committee will consist of five to ten CAI-MN members, and our entire chapter is welcome and encouraged to participate in community outreach activities. The Charitable Outreach Committee will coordinate activities that the broader CAI-MN membership can identify with, and support wholeheartedly, through the giving of time and financial resources.
