More than 300 Earn CAI Designations

1/14/2008  -  Alexandria, VA
Sixty recipients of the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation are among the more than 300 industry professionals awarded designations by Community Associations Institute (CAI) during the second half of 2007. The following were also awarded:
  • 244 Association Management Specialists (AMS)
  • 5 Reserve Specialists (RS)
  • 2 Community Insurance and Risk Management Specialists (CIRMS)
  • 2 Large Scale Managers (LSM)

For the year, CAI awarded more than 500 AMS and PCAM designations, a new annual record.

In addition, four attorneys were admitted during the six-month period to the College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL), bringing that group's membership to 104. The new members are Jay Hansen, Esq., of San Diego, CA; John Richards, Esq., of Salt Lake City, UT; Richard Salpietra, Esq., of Rancho Santa Fe, CA; and Charles Williams, Esq., of Columbus, OH.

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). The PCAM is the third and highest credential for professional managers. The 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.

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.

More than 3,800 managers have earned the AMS designation since it was established in 1990. More than 1,600 managers have earned the PCAM and 38 have obtained the LSM. Almost 150 professionals have received the RS designation, while 49 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.
