At the end of 2021, it was fantastic to be back in person at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit in Tampa, Florida. This annual meeting gives the nation’s state legislators and staff a rare opportunity to connect, dive into policy issues and prepare for the legislative sessions in 2022.
The annual Summit is an important opportunity for CAMICB to educate – and update – state and international lawmakers about the community association management profession. CAMICB has partnered with CAI and exhibited at the Summit for more than 10 years. Since then, our team has had thousands of face-to-face conversations with lawmakers about HOA and condominium laws. We also exhibit annually to reinforce the CMCA credential be considered a primary certification option should legislatures pursue licensing the association management profession.
This year nearly 2,400 people registered for the Summit, with almost a thousand legislative staff and policymakers from across the world attending. Our booth bustled with the conversation about the CMCA credentialing program’s recent international accreditation by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and emphasizing the CMCA credential meets the global benchmark for certification programs. Earning the prestigious international accreditation is proof the CMCA credential serves community association management in a consistent, comparable, and reliable manner worldwide.
