May the woes of summer travel wane over the final weekend in July as I head to the 2022 National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit in Denver. NCSL expects over 3,000 legislative staff and policymakers worldwide to attend.
The annual Summit is an important opportunity for CAMICB to educate – and update – state and international lawmakers about the community association management profession. We advocate for industry-developed professional certifications for community managers so they can self-regulate. Suppose regulation is bound and legislatures pursue licensing the trade. In that case, we promote the CMCA credential as the primary examination and certification option.
The Summit also allows us to exchange ideas and stories with colleagues from accredited certification boards regarding best practices in standards compliance – a top priority for CAMICB’s credentialing program.
CAMICB has partnered with Community Associations Institute (CAI) and exhibited at the Summit for more than ten years. Since then, our team has had tens of thousands of face-to-face conversations about HOA and condominium laws with lawmakers and their staff.For those interested in the hottest policy topics, NCSL will live stream seven sessions from the legislative Summit.
