Community associations all across America face tragedy every day—financial ruin, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, lawsuits, even murder. And yet they not only survive, they rise above disaster and become stronger communities because of it. Read their inspiring stories, and see how much goodness lives in communities just like yours.

For more than 20 years, Common Ground Magazine has shed light on community association governance, operations, and management with articles written by industry pioneers, professionals, and volunteer homeowner leaders—all of whom have helped make common-interest living one of the most successful forms of housing in America today.

Frustrating and fascinating, irrational and irresistible, community association living requires a special kind of guidance that can only be found in the pages of Common Ground. That guidance is now available in one place, as Common Sense from Common Ground presents some of the magazine's best articles, conveniently arranged by topic.
