Community Associations Institute of Arizona and The Leadership Centre are collaborating to provide a much-needed mediation service/resource to members and nonmembers, based on a demand of the state legislators and other community association stakeholders. This new collaboration is a way for us to give back to the community association industry and offer an alternative dispute resolution process. Community Associations Institute of Arizona is proud to offer an Solve-It Mediation Program to CAI AZ members as an exclusive benefit.
What is Solve-It Mediation?
We currently offer mediation and facilitation services for a wide range of community issues. Our highly trained volunteer mediators each bring special backgrounds, talents and skills to the conflict resolution table, and are adept at working with clients to achieve full resolution to their disputes! In fact, thanks to Solve-It! volunteer mediators, we have a 98% success rate helping our clients reach mutually satisfactory, written agreements that are still being upheld in 6-month follow-up interviews!
How does Solve-It Mediation work?

What are the benefits of Solve-It through CAI AZ?
The CAI AZ Solve-It Program will most likely be less expensive than the normal judicial process because it is a one-time fee rather than court costs and undetermined legal fees. Also, mediation is a confidential process unlike court cases that are adjudicated in public session. Many mediated disputes only require one session to resolve, and those sessions can be scheduled quickly. A filed court case may take months or years to resolve.
Fees will range from $25-$250, depending on the scope and complexity of each case.
