Community Associations – Package

There are over 330,000 community associations in the U.S., and the number is growing - 24% percent of U.S. homes are part of one. Community associations face a wide variety of exposures. They can range from slip-and-fall concerns to challenges with decisions that the board makes in managing the association.
