CAMICB had the privilege of partnering with CAI and exhibiting at the National Conference of State Legislatures 2019 Legislative Summit last week in Nashville, TN. Our team had more than 525 face-to-face conversations with lawmakers hailing from all 50 states. It was an energizing two and a half days spent networking, informing, learning and spreading awareness of the importance of the CMCA credential.
CAMICB is focused squarely on educating state and international lawmakers about the community association management profession and its important distinction from other real estate and property management professions. To that end, we’re committed to making sure these influential policymakers consider the CMCA credential as a primary certification option should legislatures pursue licensing the association management profession.
We also had the opportunity to exchange ideas and stories with several colleagues from NCCA and ISO 17024 accredited certification boards regarding best practices in standards compliance – another top priority for CAMICB’s credentialing program.
With more than 215 exhibitors, dozens of international countries represented – including Germany, Brasil, and South Africa – and more than 130 policy sessions offered, the 2019 Legislative Summit was an incredibly valuable experience – one I look forward to each year.
