‚ÄčManagement Companies Support CMCAs

In the growing and increasingly competitive field of community management, clients demand skilled managers who will deliver superior service. They want companies that employ qualified professionals.

It's in your company's best interest to support your manager's professional development. By supporting the professional growth of your employees, you'll instill confidence and demonstrate a commitment to providing your clients with quality services. In return, you'll be better able to retain associations as clients and build your business.

If you think you can't afford to support your manager's professional development, consider the business you will build and retain because of clients who are pleased with the expert advice and guidance they've received from your employees.

If you need more assurance as to how important your support is, data from CAI Research Foundation's Community Association Manager Compensation and Salary Survey shows that 86 percent of survey respondents indicated their employers paid for some or all of their training and education.

The following are ways you can start demonstrating your support today and help your manager achieve professional excellence.

  • Purchase an individual manager membership in Community Associations Institute (CAI) for your manager. As America's leading advocate for responsible communities, CAI provides resources and education for managers, board members, and others involved in the community association industry. For more information about CAI, visit www.caionline.org or call (703) 970-9220.
  • Pay for your manager's CMCA certification.

Budget funds for your manager to attend a CAI National Conference & Exposition, held every spring, and to attend local education programs sponsored by one of CAI's Chapters. These events bring together the leaders in the community association industry to discuss the latest issues affecting communities and improve their skills through innovative education sessions.
