Hiring a CMCA
Are you putting your most valuable assets in the hands of the most qualified professionals?
As a board member, trustee, or volunteer leader working with your association or cooperative, you have fiduciary responsibilities that obligate you to make decisions that can have a profound financial and social impact on your community. Receiving professional and accurate advice and guidance on issues such as reserves, maintenance, insurance, budgets, governance, contracts, the law, and rules enforcement can mean the difference between prosperity and disaster.
Many experts who work in these fields must earn degrees and pass tests to be certified. So why would a board risk hiring a professional who may not be qualified to look after their homes and their community?
In the growing and competitive field of community management, clients demand skilled managers who will deliver superior service. Community leaders are looking to hire companies that employ qualified professionals. By hiring only certified managers, you will instill confidence and demonstrate a commitment to providing your clients with quality professional services. In return, you'll be better able to retain clients and build your business.
