Chantilly, VA – November 8, 2019 – Associa Community Management Corporation (CMC) is proud to announce that Karen Soles, AMS®, PCAM®, has obtained her Large-Scale Manager (LSM®) designation from the Community Associations Institute (CAI).

“The LSM® designation is a highly sought-after, specialist designation and is extremely challenging to achieve,” stated John Tsitos, CMCA®, AMS®, PCAM®, CMC president. “We are proud of Karen and all of her hard work and dedication. She has a hands-on management approach and strives to provide exemplary customer service to her clients each day.  With this new designation, she will continue to excel and provide her communities with the very best management services available. There have only been 109 LSM® designations awarded; CMC is honored to have two employees that have achieved this impressive title.”
