Associa’s John Carona Delivers Industry Keynote in AZ

September 12, 2014

Phoenix, AZ - Associa’s  CEO John Carona delivered an industry keynote address at the September  luncheon of CAI’s Central Arizona Chapter and met with staff from  Associa Arizona offices.

More than 300 attendees including board  members, managers and industry business partners were on hand at the  Phoenix Airport Marriott on September 9 to hear Mr. Carona’s thoughts on  the challenges our industry faces. Mr. Carona spoke about issues he  raised in his groundbreaking book, In the Common Interest. His  speech covered the benefits of community associations, the challenges  our industry faces and ways the industry can work together to ensure  vibrant community associations now and in the future.

Mr. Carona  noted that our industry faces many challenges. The negative perception  of communities in the media, the lack of understanding by residents of  the role of the manager and the board all contribute to the issues we  hear about in HOAs and in Condos. He noted that the best way to continue  to improve our industry is to listen to our homeowners. “It is a  fundamental value of Associa, “Mr. Carona noted, “that if we treat our  customers right, success will follow.”

After the speech, Mr. Carona signed complimentary copies of his book, In the Common Interest for attendees and staff.
