​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Job analysis STUDY

CAMICB is conducting a job analysis study to answer two critical questions about the role of the community association manager: 

    1. Which tasks are essential to doing the job well?
    2. What knowledge, skills, and abilities are needed to perform those tasks successfully?
The job analysis findings are used to update the content of the CMC​​​A exam. The results will ensure that the exam continues to test the knowledge that is most relevant to successful performance as a community association manager.​​​​​



The Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) is excited to announce the launch of the community association manager job analysis survey! 

​ ​

The research project culminates with a job analysis survey distributed to thousands of community association managers worldwide. Survey respondents provide feedback on a list of common job tasks based on their own professional experience.​

The survey results will have a direct impact on the CMCA exam content and our understanding of the profession as a whole.  That's why it's crucial that as many people as possible complete the survey with honest, thoughtful feedback.​

NOTE:​​ CMCA credential holde​rs who complete the job analysis survey will be awarded four hours of continuing education credit toward their CMCA recertification. ​Survey respondents also have the opportunit​y to shape the industry standard for community association managers. As more new managers enter the field each year, it is essential that the standard of practice is clearly defined as an expectation for all professionals. ​

With your participation, the CMCA job analysis will do just that.​​


The CMCA job analysis survey can be accessed using the button above. It should take between 15-25 minutes to complete.

The survey will include two sections. The first section is a demographic questionnaire used to determine the characteristics of the total sample of respondents. The second section includes a list of job tasks that community association managers perform at different stages of their careers and in other parts of the world. Respondents will identify which tasks they perform and rate the importance of each task.

The survey results will be analyzed to determine differences in practice across different geographical regions, levels of professional experience, types of communities managed, etc. We aim to collect data from a wide diversity of managers to be able to draw these conclusions.
