The Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) offers the only international certification for managers that is accredited by the US-based National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and the globally recognized ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB). We achieved this by following a stringent process of continually updating, maintaining and validating the CMCA examination. Chief among our responsibilities is to conduct a Job Analysis Survey every five years. The survey aims to answer one key question about the role of a community association manager: Which tasks are essential to doing the job of a community association manager well?
Your Participation Matters – Watch Your Inboxes – Coming June 21!
This electronic survey will be sent to thousands of association management professionals worldwide; it’s critical for as many community association managers as possible – at all levels of experience – to participate and to share your insights. Further, survey participants who hold the CMCA will earn four continuing education credits toward their recertification.
“I can’t underscore how important it is to have as broad a representation as possible in this survey so that we have an accurate view of the profession today,” said Tom Skiba, CEO of the Communities Associations Institute (CAI). “The field of association management is rapidly growing and it’s terrific that more people are joining the profession at the entry level. The findings from this survey are critical data points to ensure we assess and certify managers based on the appropriate criteria. In doing so, associations and management companies who hire CMCAs will continue to thrive.”
Your participation in this survey will:
- Tell us what the essential tasks and duties are that comprise a manager’s day-to-day work,
- Help guide the development of a new CMCA exam blueprint that mirrors current practice,
- Identify any changes in practice and ensure we are testing what we need to be testing, and;
- Help us emerge with a clear vision of what the field of association management around the world is today and how it has changed over the last five years.
Please take a few moments to offer your valuable input that will help shape our understanding of the profession today and will ensure that the CMCA remains the most reliable indicator of knowledge, ethics and professionalism for community association managers.
