MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Associa Minnesota had 14 nominees recognized at the Community Associations Institute (CAI) 2016 Vision Awards and took home two of the biggest awards of the night.

Six Associa Minnesota managers out of its 12 individual nominees became finalists along with two communities, managed by Associa Minnesota, which were named Association of the Year finalists.
Hannah Zornes won the Above & Beyond Award. This award is presented to someone who has performed tasks, services or humanitarian efforts above and beyond a typical job description.
