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. 

Paul D. Grucza, CMCA, AMS, PCAM is the Director of Education and Client Engagement at the CWD Group, Inc. AAMC in Seattle, Washington. Paul is one of the first 100 CMCAs to have earned the credential. He feels so strongly about its importance, that he implemented a policy at CWD that states all new staff members must earn the CMCA credential within 90 days of employment.

“I’m proud to have held and maintained the CMCA for so many years,” said Paul.  Paul is also a member of the Exam Development Committee where he has spent more than 20 years helping to write exam questions for the CMCA examination.  “I believe my experience in the field has helped shape the exam questions and, in turn, what knowledge is expected of CMCAs.” 

As Paul looks ahead to retirement and reflects upon his more than 40 year career in professional community association management, he explains, “I’m proud to have spent 40 years of my life in this wonderful industry. My favorite piece has been focusing on client engagement and training. This has been such a rewarding career for which I am grateful.” 

He adds, “One must have both patience and a true sense of urgency in this profession as well as a servant-leader mindset to be successful.”
