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; meeting with its manager, board members and key personnel; and learning about the local area. You’ll be encouraged to ask questions and openly discuss issues faced by the association.

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 location.
