CO Gov. Vetoes CAM Licensing Ext.; CAMICB Approves CO License Waiver

Colorado Governor Jared Polis (D) vetoed the bill that would have extended the Community Association Management licensing program until July 1, 2021. Pending a veto override by the General Assembly, the licensing regime will end July 1, 2019. This means that licenses will no longer be required to manage community associations in the state of Colorado. Citing the lack of data proving the licensing regime protects consumers, the governor instead called for an Executive Order that directs the regulatory agency to consider, develop, and make recommendations on matters pertaining to community associations. Such matters include: licensing, transparency, and homeowner rights and consumer protections. The recommendations are due to the Governor by January 1, 2020.

In anticipation of action, CAMICB approved the Colorado License as a prerequisite waiver to apply for and sit for the CMCA Examination at its May Board of Commissioners meeting. While the license will become inactive in the state as of July 1, CAMICB will accept evidence of the license in good standing at the time of the regime’s sunset date as a fulfillment of the CMCA prerequisite requirement until July 1, 2020. This is great news for managers who opted not to take the Community Associations Institute (CAI) M-100: Essentials of Community Association Management course work on their pathway to licensure, since they now have another way to establish eligibility for the CMCA. The M-100 remains an approved prerequisite requirement. CMCA applications and its website are under revision due to this and other changes, so if you have immediate questions please email CAMICB at
