More than 270 Earn CAI Designations

2/19/2009  -  Alexandria, VA

Fifty recipients of the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation are among more than 270 industry professionals awarded designations by Community Associations Institute (CAI) during the second half of 2008. The following were also awarded:

  • 202 Association Management Specialists (AMS)
  • 4 Large-Scale Managers (LSM)
  • 10 Reserve Specialists (RS)
  • 6 Community Insurance and Risk Management Specialists (CIRMS)

In addition, five attorneys were admitted to the College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL), bringing to 117 the number of attorneys admitted to CCAL since 1994.

  • Julie McGhee Howard, Esq., Weissman, Nowack, Curry & Wilco, P.C., Atlanta, Ga.
  • Michael Inman, Esq., Inman & Strickler, P.L.C., Virginia Beach, Va.
  • Myra Lansky, Esq., Lansky, Weigler & Porter, P.C., Denver, Colo.
  • Matt Ober, Esq., Richardson & Harman, P.C., Pasadena, Calif.
  • Augustus Shaw, Esq., Shaw & Lines, LLC, Phoenix, Ariz.

The PCAM is the third and highest designation for professional managers. The AMS is the second tier in the hierarchy of professional certification and designations for community association managers. The first tier is the Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) credential, administered by CAI's affiliate organization, the National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers (NBC-CAM). CAI's LSM designation demonstrates a specialized knowledge in the management and operation of large-scale community associations.

The RS designation recognizes education, expertise and experience in the conduct of reserve studies, an increasingly important component of community association operations. The CIRMS designation recognizes a demonstrated high level of competency 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 an estimated 300,000 association-governed communities.

Almost 4,300 managers have earned the AMS designation since it was established in 1990.

More than 1,700 managers have earned the PCAM and 43 have obtained the LSM. More than 170 professionals have received the RS designation, while 62 have earned the CIRMS designation.

CAI designation programs have elevated the professional stature of those who earn designations, and that has made CAI designations increasingly visible and valuable in the marketplace.

Information on designations and CCAL membership can be accessed online.
