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. 

When Bruce Nahon, CMCA, AMS, a Managing Agent based in Kirkland, Washington, started down this career path, he firmly believed he would be best served by belonging to a community of professionals who promoted the CMCA credential and its importance. “Passing a rigorous, internationally recognized exam and earning the CMCA credential was a great way to grow my career as an HOA portfolio manager and it gave me the confidence I needed to pursue this work,” said Bruce, who went on to earn the AMS designation in 2002.

Added Bruce, “As I took on additional properties to manage, the CMCA credential assured HOAs they could rely on my background, experience and the fact that I regularly participate in continuing education opportunities.”

Bruce continues to find satisfaction in helping HOA owners and Boards with their individual and varied needs. “Owners tell me they enjoy contacting me to address their questions and concerns and Boards rely on my knowledge of the governing documents and how they affect all operational aspects of the association. I find this work extremely rewarding,” said Bruce.

Added Bruce, “To all new managers I say, become CMCA certified as soon as possible and find a mentor to help you navigate the joys and sometimes perils of community association management.”
