By Drew Mulhare, CMCA, LSM, PCAM
CAMICB Board Chair
I’m honored to serve as Chair of the CAMICB Board of Commissioners and to work alongside passionate and experienced Board members, all of whom are deeply committed to the strength and integrity of the CMCA credentialing program. We represent an organization that’s committed to professionalism in the field of community association management and to the success of individuals pursuing the CMCA credential. In doing so, we work hard to offer our exam candidates a wide range of useful, engaging tools to assist them in preparing for the exam, and we’re excited to launch new materials in 2019.
Over the years, I’ve witnessed the evolution of the community association management profession mature into a dynamic and vital career. I’m proud to be a part of an organization that has a strong and continuing commitment to raising awareness of what the CMCA credential represents among our professional community, homeowners, as well as legislators and regulators.
As demand for the CMCA credential continues to grow – both here in the U.S. and abroad – CAMICB will work through the NCCA reaccreditation process for the CMCA credential and will also pursue accreditation through ANSI, which is a critical component for international expansion of the CMCA. ANSI accreditation will ensure the CMCA Program is in accordance with requirements defined in International Standards. Both NCCA and ANSI accreditation confirm the CMCA Program complies with stringent standards for a professional certification program. Accreditation validates the integrity of the CMCA Program and is a mark of quality. This is no small undertaking, consequently 2019 promises to be a busy and important year!
