The New England Chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI) recently awarded Joe Carleton with the The Hall of Fame Award, which is the highest honor the chapter bestows, recognizing members who have served the organization and the industry “with honor and distinction” and who have “consistently supported and promoted CAI and the community association industry.” Joe was nominated for the award by members of the Maine Legislative Action Committee, which he helped found and on which he has served multiple terms. His colleagues also cited his key role in establishing CAI-NE in Maine with his “unique understanding of and experience with” industry issues, his tireless efforts to improve the condominium industry and condominium law, and his “lifetime commitment to condominium associations, CAI, and the New England Chapter.”
Joe is also a fellow of CAI’s College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL). This elite national group of about 150 attorneys is highly selective. Attorneys who are invited to join must demonstrate skill, experience, and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice of community association law, as well as a dedication to excellence in this specialized practice. Joe is the only member of CCAL from Maine.
