Join the CAIA


The Cape Arthur Improvement Association (CAIA) is a not-for-profit corporation created to coordinate neighborhood communications, help preserve property values, and to maintain common properties of the association. The board members are elected by the homeowners and serve two year terms. 


The Cape Arthur Improvement Association (CAIA) is the community association for Cape Arthur residents in Severna Park, MD.  Joining CAIA gives Cape Arthur residents the privilege of using the community amenities including the playground, beach, piers, boat launch ramp, picnic tables, and grills.  Membership of CAIA is voluntary and is renewed each April.  Only residents of homes that are identified in the CAIA Covenants are permitted to join the CAIA and membership cannot be granted to residents of surrounding communities.  Additionally, pier slips are only available to CAIA members, and thus cannot be granted to residents who live outside of Cape Arthur.


We also work to encourage harmonious partnership between our homeowners. Getting involved in our association is a great way to make friends and influence the policies that we all live by.
