The CAMICB Retired Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA®) program is available to community association management professionals no longer actively employed as a community association manager but interested in highlighting their continuing commitment to professionalism in the field. This program allows individuals retired from active community association management to display this new designation with no obligation to meet continuing education requirements.
Retirement Doesn’t Mean Walking Away From The Profession
For the many retired community association management professionals who obtained their CMCA and maintained it over the years, staying active in the industry is an important – and fulfilling – phase of retirement.
“I decided to apply for retired status rather than just walk away from maintaining my CMCA because it’s an honor I wasn’t ready to part with,” said Judy Rosen, CMCA (Ret.), AMS, PCAM (Ret.). “Even though I retired from full-time work as a community association manager more than five years ago, it was important for me to remain actively involved in the industry.” Rosen is currently a member of the CAMICB Exam Development Committee and a member of the CAI National Faculty. “Displaying my CMCA (Ret.) is especially important to me, particularly when I facilitate the PCAM Case Study; the students should know I earned my CMCA credential.”
Rosen added, “The value in maintaining this new designation is the world recognition I enjoy. No matter where I go for a faculty assignment, or what CAI Chapter asks me speak at a local conference, these audiences know I’m one of them with experience and expertise in the profession. And I believe this is particularly important to managers!”
In short, the benefits of obtaining CMCA (Ret.) status include:
- A meaningful way to honor your commitment and years of service to the profession;
- The ability to showcase this new designation, CMCA (Ret.), with no obligation to meeting continuing education requirements;
