Management Companies Place a Premium on Professionalism

5/16/2006  -  Alexandria, VA
Perhaps more than any other community association constituency, management company executives recognize the scope of the challenges associations face. That unique perspective explains why more than 150 management companies are supporting their managers with individual professional memberships in Community Associations Institute (CAI).


CAI launched a major membership transition beginning in July 2005, placing strong emphasis on individual memberships for community association managers in an effort to elevate the status of the profession. Since that time, manager memberships have increased from about 1,200 to more than 4,000.

"We're reminded everyday of the complexities of community association management and the type of professionals we need to succeed," says Debra A. Warren, who chairs the board of CAI's Association of Professional Community Managers (APCM). "We know the value of true professionalism because we rely on these professionals to meet the expectations of our clients—and to grow our businesses."

"Management companies engineered the culture of professionalism that exists in our industry, but we cannot become complacent," Warren adds. "Industry stewardship is continuous—and contagious. We need to be leaders when it comes to the future of this profession. We created APCM to instill a mindset of professionalism and give our managers a home within CAI so they can take full advantage of the education and resources available to them."

Manager members of CAI receive benefits designed to enhance their professional growth and elevate their value as employees. These benefits include:

  • Enrollment in APCM and the opportunity to take advantage of chapter involvement and resources.
  • Personal subscriptions to Common Ground™, CAI's award-winning, bimonthly magazine, and Community Manager, a recently expanded and enhanced bi-monthly newsletter tailored to meet the specific career and professional needs of managers.
  • The most comprehensive curriculum of professional education available for community association managers.
  • Access to a vast online network of resources, information and practical tools.
  • An invaluable network of peers, mentors and experts.

APCM was created based on the conviction that managers who belong to professional organizations are more likely to learn, excel and become more effective community managers—and better long-term ambassadors for both their companies and the profession as a whole. This reality has been demonstrated in countless professions, including accounting, human resources, communications and law enforcement.

"By purchasing individual CAI memberships for their managers, management companies are contributing immeasurably to the growth and vitality of the community management profession," said CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, MBA, CAE. "Management company executives who support their managers in this important way are sending a strong message that they place a high value on professional development, personal growth and customer service."

Adds Warren: "By elevating the value of professional management, we are stimulating greater marketplace respect for the management companies that serve community associations. Our success will be measured not just by our business achievements, but also by strength of the profession and the success of our clients."
