PCAM Case Study

​​​The final step toward earning the PCAM designation.
The PCAM Case Study is a comprehensive examination of an actual community association, combining discussion with an extensive host association tour. You’ll explore the community in depth, reviewing its administrative procedures, legal documents and communications; and meet with its manager, board members and key personnel. Each virtual offering will feature a video property tour and live interviews via Zoom meeting. You’ll be encouraged to ask questions and openly discuss issues faced by the association in either format.

To successfully complete the case study, you must submit a final exam paper using the skills acquired in the prerequisite courses (all 200-level courses) as well as information collected during the offering.


2 days | Times vary by offering.
