​​​Volunteer for CAMICB​

Volunteers are integral to fulfilling CAMICB’s mission to ensure the quality of professional community association management worldwide. Serving as a CAMICB volunteer is an excellent opportunity to network with peers while gaining new skills and insight into the industry. Volunteers can also earn continuing education (CE) credits toward recertifying their CMCA.

Service as a CAMICB volunteer is service to your profession. It is an opportunity to be involved in building and enhancing the level of professionalism in the field of community association management and to have a voice in defining the knowledge and skills required to serve effectively as a manager of a community association (also called a strata association, common interest development, or body corporate). As a CAMICB volunteer, you can deepen your knowledge of the profession and hone your expertise in one or more practice areas.

Our volunteers frequently work with accomplished peers in small work teams to complete critical tasks for CAMICB programs. These experiences are enjoyable and productive and offer extraordinary opportunities for networking with peers worldwide. Many CAMICB volunteers have made lifelong friendships and support each other outside their volunteer roles.

We invite credential holders and members of the public to submit names for consideration as volunteers for CAMICB. Below are summaries of the various volunteer opportunities available:
