Voices & Vignettes From CMCAs

As CAMICB continues to celebrate its 25th anniversary, we reached out to CMCAs who’ve held the credential for 25, or more, years. Many CMCAs graciously offered to share their experiences, highlights, career paths and advice with us. 

Kelly Lynn Reznicek, LCAM, CMCA, AMS, PCAM is the Director of Community Management for Inframark, AAMC in Katy, Texas. When Kelly started in the association management business, she was very young and eager to make a difference. She read everything she could about being a professional manager and attended all available training programs. Said Kelly, “I was thirsty for knowledge and eager to take the M-100 class. After the class, I studied for the CMCA exam and passed on my first try. Earning the CMCA credential immediately added value to my company and increased my salary. It also proved to my colleagues that I was committed to my education and being a professional community association manager.”

Kelly’s favorite part about being a professional community manager is helping people and solving problems. According to Kelly, “When I was younger, I wanted to be a teacher. I then wanted to be a counselor for children, followed by an attorney. Even though I am not a teacher, a counselor or an attorney, this business has allowed me to develop the same wide variety of skills as I would’ve had I chosen those other career paths.”

Kelly’s advice for those entering the profession: “Keep learning. Never stop believing in yourself and never think you’ve seen it all. Be humble, kind and honest. Show compassion, sympathy and empathy for others but most importantly, be a good listener so you completely understand a person or situation.”
