You bring the questions. We bring the experts. You get solutions while meeting neighbors in similar positions and you don't have to leave your neighborhood to it.

Bootcamps for

New owners and shareholders

Excitement over a new apartment can quickly turn to dismay if you anger your new neighbors and are taken to task for violating building policy. Our bootcamps take the guesswork out of alteration policies, house rules, moving policies, insurance policies, and other requirements, allowing new relationships between neighbors and with property management firms and building staff to start off on the right foot.


BIG APPLECAI connects you with the resources you need, the education you seek, and answers you can trust.Through our online resources, events and updates, we provide the tools and contacts you need to improve your building without wasting your time.

For over 40 years, CAI has helped boards and homeowners get the answers they need.

CAI's NY Legislative Action Committee (LAC) tracks bills in Albany to protect the interests of shareholders and unit owners. The committee reviews the bills that would impact co-ops, condominiums, and homeowner associations in NYS and discusses any potential negative consequences BEFORE the bills become law.

BIG APPLECAI's members of the LAC, together with CNYC, track bills that have been introduced in our City Council.
