Community Associations Institute (CAI) awarded 266 career-enhancing designations—including 53 Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) credentials—between January 1 and June 30, 2015. Almost 2,700 managers have earned a PCAM designation, the most prestigious and respected credential for community association managers.
The following designations also were awarded during the six-month period:
In addition to designations, more than 100 members have earned CAI's Educated Business Partner distinction. Recipients must take Business Partner Essentials, a two-part, online course about CAI, community associations and the industry at large. The course is available to all CAI Business Partner members, including accountants, attorneys, bankers, insurance professionals, landscapers, painters, reserve specialists and software providers.
Recipients of designations and the EBP distinction are listed at the end of this news release.
The number of AMS recipients now exceeds 7,300, while the number of CIRMS recipients has passed the 100 threshold. Three hundred professionals have earned the RS designation, while almost 100 community managers hold the specialized LSM credential.
"Individuals who earn CAI designations deserve recognition and respect," says CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. "They’ve taken the time to elevate their professionalism so they can provide the very best support, service and guidance to their community association clients. That’s increasingly important for the almost 70 million Americans who now make their homes in common-interest communities."
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 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 65 million Americans in close to 330,000 association-governed communities.
