Community Association Managers in 18 States Earn Top Industry Designation

11/16/1999  -  Alexandria, VA
Thirty-four managers recently joined the elite group who have earned Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM®) designation from the Community Associations Institute. Each of these skilled individuals is one of more than 1,000 managers nationwide who have earned the highest level of professional recognition in the industry. All were inducted at CAI's 47th National Conference in Atlanta, Oct. 28-30.


To be eligible for the designation, managers must have at least three years of experience providing community management and be a CAI member in good standing. PCAM® candidates must successfully complete the 20-hour Essentials of Community Association Management course; the Professional Management Development Program, which includes more than 80 hours of coursework and six examinations; and a two-day case study culminating in a complete community profile presentation. PCAM®s must fulfill annual continuing education and service requirements and adhere to the CAI Professional Manager Code of Ethics.

Community association management is a growing profession dedicated to fostering responsive, competent, effective community associations. A community association manager's duties include:

  • providing administrative, operational and managerial counsel to association boards and residents;
  • developing association budgets and financial reports;
  • directing the enforcement of community association covenants and restrictions;
  • assisting board members in the selection of contractors and insurance providers;
  • overseeing and authorizing payment for community association services;
  • directing association personnel; and
  • performing site inspections.

The Community Associations Institute is a nonprofit association created in 1973 to educate and represent the nation's 205,000 community associations—condominium associations, homeowner associations and cooperatives. CAI members include homeowners, associations and related professionals and service providers.
