Marketing Plans

Bissell Design has been apart of the Community Associations Institute for close to 7 years. Being a member of Coachella Vally and proud educated business partner we also work closely with our hometown San Diego.

Being the premier provider of education, advocacy, and resources for Community Associations calls for help from its members each year within their chapters. Giving a clear idea of what is needed in the chapter does not come easily. Making sure all the members know what is planned throughout the year and how they can get involved all come together with many volunteers and office staff. This year we have already been planning for 2018 and have presented the 2018 Marketing plan for San Diego and the Coachella Vally is coming shortly after.

Bissell Design is always looking to help CAI keep cohesive branding across chapters and give them their own unique feel. This year SD chose to focus on the beautiful Balboa Park in San Diego as a reference to their location and pride in the city. Here are some images and a link to the PDF itself.

Proud to Be a Part of the CAI-CV Office Move

Proud to Be a Part of the CAI-CV Office Move

Community Associations Institute (CAI) is an organization dedicated to building better communities by providing education and resources to volunteer homeowners who govern community associations and the professionals who support them.

Having worked with the Coachella Valley chapter of CAI for the past six years, we are excited to be a part of their recent move and much needed expansion. The chapter has been growing by leaps and bounds and we have been so happy walking with them during this time of rapid growth. It will be amazing to see members having their own space to gather for meetings, a designated boardroom, educational facilities and more.

We help with CAI-CV's branding and the building is an expansion of who they are. We look forward to helping wherever we are needed. 

The article below is pulled from the CAI-V Quorum Magazine 9/2017 issue (page 12). You can find the whole issue at this link.


After more than twenty-five years in the same office suite, CAI-CV is making a historic move to a new professional office building near the corner of Cook Street and Gerald Ford.  For the past two years, CAI-CV has been looking for a new space large enough to house a classroom.  “We finally found the right location,” said CAI-CV President Phyllis Harkins, “CAI-CV’s primary mission of education will be taken to a new level with this move.”  

The Chapter’s new address will be 75410 Gerald Ford Drive, Suite 102, Palm Desert, CA 92211.

The new suite is twice the size of the current space and the classroom will hold 40 to 50 students.  The Board has already scheduled more than twenty classes for the new classroom in 2018.  The classes will include more education for managers, business partners, and community board members.  A new CAI nationally approved two-hour “Board Basic Training” course for Homeowner Leaders (NEW NAME – SEE ARTICLE ON PAGE 15) is in the development stage and will be offered free to board members throughout the Valley monthly during the season.   

The buildout plans are in the drawing stage for City approval and construction will begin in a few weeks.  Business partners who are interested in donating time, materials or expertise to the moving project, you are needed.  Please contact the CAI-CV office if you would like to help.  The move is expected to take place in October or November.  We will keep you informed through Quorum and E-blasts.

July CAI-CV Quorum Magazine photoshoot

image.jpg

We took Madison Hsieh to help take photos for July's issue of Quorum Magazine. She is a budding photographer and designer/artist. We have seen great point of focus and balance throughout her photos.

With a little bit of art direction, her photos really hit the mark. She also was a trooper when the air conditioning went out and it was 110 degrees in Palm Desert. 

We are excited to see how she uses her creative gifts in the future.

Thanks, Maddie, for all your help. Hope you learned a lot and continue to pursue your passion for photography.
