Community Associations Institute (CAI) announced the prestigious award in August
Katie Anderson, CEO of Bend-based Aperion Management Group, was recognized nationally as a rising star in the Homeowners’ Association (HOA) management industry. Community Association Institute (CAI) presented the award to Anderson at the 2021 Annual Conference & Exposition: Community NOW in August for her efforts in volunteer work with the CAI Central Oregon Chapter and CAI Oregon Legislative Action Committee.
CAI is an international membership organization dedicated to building better communities. With over 42,000 members and 63 chapters worldwide, CAI provides information, education and resources to the homeowner volunteers who govern communities and the professionals who support them. Their presence is recognized internationally throughout the industry, and they choose only two recipients each year to receive the rising star award.
“The Rising Star Award honors a volunteer whose leadership abilities and professional contributions forecast even greater accomplishments in the future,” says Thomas M. Skiba, CAE, CAI CEO. “Katie Anderson exemplifies just those qualities.”
Anderson is a founding member of the CAI Central Oregon Regional Chapter and a member of the CAI Oregon Legislative Action Committee. She conveys her ideas and experiences freely, and those ideas, when shared with the participants at the ACAM CEO-MC Retreat, brought the birth of the civility code, which lead to a broader conversation within CAI that resulted in the Civility Pledge. Anderson speaks regularly at any event or webinar she is asked to, and she encourages her managers to be involved locally in the chapter. Importantly, she has pushed the CAI Oregon Legislative Action Committee to comply with best practices, communicate with membership, and be a more inclusive and effective entity. Anderson is a leader who has already had an impact on shaping the community association management profession and owner expectations in a way that is aligned with the next generation.
“I feel truly honored to be recognized for the work I feel so passionately about as a volunteer, which is to further the betterment of the HOA industry as a whole,” said Katie Anderson, CEO, Aperion Management Group.
