CAI miniscule minority dominates public policy

Data

17,000 people, of the 29,000 CAI members, from 57,000,000 people living in 286,000 HOAs containing 23,100,000 units (CAI stats from caiservices@caionline.org, Apr 3, 2007, and its webpage, http://caionline.org/about/facts.cfm, Apr 3, 2007).  

Assume no CAI member is in the same unit or HOA; there are 2.5 people in a unit (US Census gives 2.6 people).

Statistics

59% CAI membership is from HOA residents (17k/29k) —  there are no HOAs as members any longer

At most, 5.9% of HOAs have a resident member in CAI, (17k/286k) and that does not mean that the HOA is represented by CAI.

At most, .03% of all people living in HOAs are CAI members (17k/57M)

At most, .07% of all HOA units are a CAI member.

CAI minority dominates public policy

Yet, CAI as a national lobbying organization for over 34 years has been able to overwhelmingly dominate and influence public policy to the detriment of homeowners who are member-owners of the HOA, and deny them their fundamental rights and freedoms.

When will our state legislatures and government officials begin to realize that their pro-HOA legislation and regulation  does not have the support of a majority of the homeowners in HOAs, but a minority of individuals with a personal agenda. That their legislation supports special interest interference with the fundamental rights and freedoms of the people in violation of the US Constitution.
