Community Association Management

Why Should You Look for the PCAM® Designation?

  • The Professional Community Association Manager ® (PCAM®) designation has only been earned by a few thousand community managers across the entire United States.
  • PCAM®-run communities experience the highest level of administrative, financial and property management services of any communities under management.
  • Property/community managers with the PCAM® designation are required to have at least five years of management experience which gives them the background to assist in implementing the most effective and efficient processes and procedures.
  • PCAM® candidates must successfully complete the 20-hour Essentials of Community Association Management course; the Professional Management Development Program (PMDP), which includes more than 100 hours of course work, and six examinations; and a two-day case study culminating in a complete community profile report presentation.
  • PCAM® designees must fulfill continuing education and service requirements and adhere to the CAI Professional Manager Code of Ethics.
  • Discerning associations prefer PCAM® managers who understand the fiduciary responsibilities of running an organization.
  • With ongoing educational requirements, PCAM® association managers bring the latest in technology, process, procedure and reporting to the communities that they run, allowing the Board of Directors to spend less time managing and more time enjoying the community they live in.
