Recertification is an ongoing process designed to promote and demonstrate continued competency in the community association management profession. This competency can be demonstrated through participation in continuing education in the field of community association management by participation in at least 16 hours of continuing education coursework every two years.

Recertification also provides the opportunity for you to reaffirm your commitment to the CMCA Standards of Professional Conduct to your community associations, your employers, your peers, and the millions of people living in community associations.

Recertification allows professional managers to distinguish themselves as accomplished professionals committed to the development of their skills and knowledge.

As a CMCA you can continue to enhance your marketability, show your dedication to your profession, and provide top-notch guidance to your associations by continuing your education and maintaining your certification. 

CMCAs are responsible for monitoring continuing education status and maintaining the necessary records to substantiate satisfactory compliance with the recertification program.

Changes to the CMCA Fees Structure

The CMCA application fee will increase from $315 to $340 effective July 1, 2022​​. The CMCA annual maintenance fee will also increase from $115 to $125. 

The first increase in many years, the fee adjustment reflects an ongoing rise in program operating costs and CAMICB’s commitment to a material increase in program staff dedicated to providing direct service and support to our credential holders. 

We remain committed to operating the certification program in complete alignment with the highest standards in professional credentialing, assuring the integrity and long-term strength of the CMCA, and providing effective, responsive support to our candidates and credential holders.

Your commitment to the CMCA credential and the field of professional community association management is appreciated.
