Industry Involvement

Associa helps to shape the future of community association management through active involvement in a number of trade organizations. Our professionals maintain a variety of certifications, including AAMC, AMS, CMCA, CPM, LSM and PCAM*, and participate in ongoing training programs.

 

Within our industry trade organization, Community Associations Institute (CAI), Associa personnel have held more leadership positions than any other management company, including: two national presidents, seven members of the Board of Trustees, numerous national committee and council chairs, more than 25 chapter presidents, and dozens of chapter board members.

 

When CAI decided to develop the nation’s only national manager certification program through the formation of the National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers (NBC-CAM), two of the five steering committee members selected were Associa personnel.

 

Leadership by Associa personnel in other industry organizations include: three presidents of the Foundation for Community Association Research, elected members to the Board of the Association of Professional Community Managers, California Association of Community Managers (CACM), and a national instructor for the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).

 

Additionally, Associa personnel include nationally published authors who have been selected to help write the courses that teach other industry managers through CAI’s Professional Management Development Program. Associa personnel have also served on CAI’s national teaching staff, and have been awarded national distinctions such as “Outstanding Educator of the Year” and “Excellence in Education.”
