The Foundation for Community Association Research (FCAR)’s Community Association Manager Compensation and Salary Surveyshows that managers who obtained CMCA certification earn, on average, 20% more than non-credentialed community association managers.
Please take a few minutes to complete the 2021 Community Association Manager Compensation and Salary Survey if you have not done so already. Participants receive FREE access to the results. (You will need to log in with your email address and CAI password.)
The Foundation for Community Association Research is producing the survey—a valuable tool for benchmarking compensation and benefit levels in the community association management industry—for the seventh time. This will be the first report that provides access to real-time data through a dynamic, online platform.
The survey will include data on:
- Annual wages paid to community managers, including large-scale, high-rise, on-site, portfolio, CEOs, management company executives, and many others. (Note: We highly encourage you to pass this survey along to your colleagues and team members.)
- Employee benefits
- Vacation and sick leave
- Retirement, flex-spending, and more
The Foundation has commissioned Dynamic Benchmarking, an independent research firm, to host the survey, compile data, and produce reports. Strict confidentiality is maintained by Dynamic Benchmarking and the Foundation.
To participate in the survey, simply log in with your email address and CAI password and begin entering the data into the third-party website. You can enter and exit the survey as often as you like; the website will save your responses. You will need to complete the entire survey to receive free access to the results. That free access will be available once there is enough aggregate data for a meaningful comparison of compensation and salary data. We estimate free access will be available by May.
