They assume conflict. They assume you have to protect yourself from residents. And over the years they have become increasingly professional manager oriented -- I think in part to support themselves. I think they also started a professional managers certification program. A small community association in the condominium world is ~400 units so you can expect their viewpoint to be a bit different than that of a cohousing community. But they are still the best source of information on a wide variety of topics related to finances, legal issues, and facilities. This is a place in which cohousers could make significant social change -- teach the CAI that it doesn't have to be the way they expect it to be.
