Mission, Vision, Value Proposition
To enhance the community association management profession and provide a level of protection to homeowners living in community associations by recognizing people who have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the profession's defined body of knowledge.
To be the most widely recognized and trusted credential for the community association management profession.
The CMCA offers a level of protection to homeowners and their communities by offering a trusted credential awarded only to professional managers who have demonstrated competency of the defined body of knowledge of a community association manager.
CAMICB, formerly NBC-CAM, was established by
Community Associations Institute (CAI) in 1995 as an independent nonprofit that develops and administers the CMCA certification program. CAI created the program in response to a need for stringent professional standards of community association management.
International Standards for Certification Programs
CAMICB adheres to the
National Commission for Certifying Agencies' (NCCA) guidelines. The CMCA credential is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies which means it complies with NCCA's stringent standards for a professional certification program. NCCA accreditation provides independent validation that the CMCA program meets or exceeds twenty-one standards concerning various aspects of the certification program including its purpose, structure, governance, psychometric foundation, policies and procedures. Accreditation validates the integrity of the program and is a mark of quality.
