Almost 300 Earn CAI Professional Designations

7/29/2013  -  Falls Church, VA

Community Associations Institute (CAI) awarded almost 300 career-enhancing designations to industry professionals between Sept. 21, 2012, and June 30, including 55 recipients of the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation, the highest and most prestigious credential for community association managers.

The following designations also were awarded during the same period:

  • Association Management Specialist (AMS)-213
  • Reserve Specialist (RS)-8
  • Community Insurance and Risk Management Specialist (CIRMS)-4
  • Large-Scale Manager (LSM)-2

Recipients of the designations are listed further below.

"We applaud these dedicated individuals for their commitment to education and professional development," says CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. "We know CAI designations engender professional and personal respect and spawn more successful and rewarding careers, but they also elevate the professionalism of the industry at large. That’s essential given the importance of the work performed by these professionals."

The AMS is the second tier of professional certification and designations for community association managers. The first tier is the Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) credential, administered by the National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers (soon to be renamed the Community Association Managers International Certification Board).  The LSM is a specialized designation that can be earned only after the manager has a PCAM.

The RS designation recognizes a high level of competency in the conduct of reserve studies. The CIRMS designation recognizes a demonstrated expertise within the risk management profession.

CAI’s designation programs were established in the 1990s and early 2000s to elevate the level of professionalism in the community association marketplace, a dynamic segment of the U.S. housing market that now encompasses more than 60 million Americans in almost 310,000 association-governed communities.

To date, more than 2,300 managers have earned the PCAM designation, while almost 6,600 have earned the AMS. Some 263 professionals have received the RS designation, with 102 being awarded the CIRMS.
