Professional Community Association Managers Are Champions for HOA Success
Statewide Campaign Launched to Raise Awareness of California-Certified Community Managers Invites Homeowners to “Tell Us About Your Champion” For A Chance to Win $500!
LAGUNA HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--California Association of Community Managers (CACM), the state’s leading community association management education organization, today launched the second phase of its Community Champions awareness campaign.
“More than 14.3 million people, about 38 percent of the state’s population, live in an HOA-managed community, many of which are run by professionally trained community association managers”
Part of a statewide program, the Community Champions campaign is focused on raising awareness about the importance of CACM’s California-specific Certified Community Association Manager (CCAM®) designation and educating homeowners about the valuable role community association managers have in overseeing the nearly 50,000 common interest developments (CIDs) or homeowners associations (HOAs) in California.
“More than 14.3 million people, about 38 percent of the state’s population, live in an HOA-managed community, many of which are run by professionally trained community association managers,” said Karen Conlon, president and CEO of CACM. “These professionals act as champions and have tremendous responsibilities for the residents they serve. They guide volunteer HOA boards through complicated issues like finances, state legislation and dispute resolution, and they oversee all aspects of property maintenance. They have a huge impact on the lives of thousands of Californians and it’s time they are recognized for the important role they play.”
At the heart of the Community Champions campaign are testimonials and stories of exemplary community association managers from across the state. HOA residents and board members are encouraged to share stories about their community manager champions at www.MyCommunityChampion.com for a chance to win a $500 gift card.
