CAMICB Announces Change In Leadership

John Ganoe To Retire As CAMICB Executive Director; Matthew Green Named Executive Director

Falls Church, Virginia – March 6, 2023  The Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) today announced its Executive Director, John Ganoe, CAE, will retire in April after 11 years in that role. Matthew Green, CAE was named Executive Director. 

“John has been a professional partner and personal friend for almost 30 years,” said Tom Skiba, CAE, CEO of the Community Associations Institute (CAI). “His decade leading CAMICB has seen not only dramatic growth in the number of professional community managers holding the CMCA, but the evolution of the program into THE global credential in the community association management profession. It’s the only credential recognized by ANSI/ISO, as well as industry professionals and governments around the world.”

Prior to joining CAMICB in 2012, John had an extensive career in professional credentialing, non-profit management, and consulting for non-profit organizations. 

“John has built, equipped and developed a talented staff,” added Greg Smith, CMCA, AMS, PCAM, Chair of the CAMICB Board of Commissioners. “He has created a legacy of care and consistency and is now ready to pass the reins onto Matthew and his capable staff.”

“The opportunity to lead CAMICB over the past 11 years as the organization worked to raise awareness of the value of the CMCA credential, expand delivery of the CMCA examination outside the United States, and earn international recognition of the credentialing program has been extraordinary,” said John Ganoe. “I have had the privilege of working with a corps of committed, intentional volunteer leaders and an enormously talented staff.  Matthew’s broad knowledge of the field of community association management and the processes needed to maintain the CMCA credentialing program at the highest level assure continued growth and success for CAMICB. I have the greatest confidence in the future of the organization.”

Prior to joining CAMICB in 2018, Matthew was the Director of State Affairs for CAI for eight years where he was the point person for legislation that addressed the regulation of community association managers. As CAMICB Associate Executive Director, Matthew has been instrumental in advancing the CMCA program in the NCCA reaccreditation process and he was the lead in the effort to secure accreditation for the credentialing program against ISO Standard 17024. 
“I knew the first day I worked with Matthew, nearly a decade ago, that he is a natural leader,” said Dawn Bauman, CAE, CAI’s Senior Vice President, Government and Public Affairs. “His operational and administrative skills are exactly what’s needed for an organization like CAMICB. Matthew is a wonderfully collaborative colleague who is decisive, self-aware and authentic. Matthew will take what he has learned under John’s leadership and shine brightly. I look forward to working with him in the years to come.”

“I’m fortunate to work with this incredible Board of Commissioners, many of whom I collaborated with in my previous role at CAI, prior to joining CAMICB,” said Matthew Green. “Working alongside – and learning from – John as he thoughtfully drove the organization forward while cultivating an extraordinary and dedicated staff was invaluable. Together with this remarkable team, I’m excited for the opportunity to keep up this momentum.”

“John’s tenure with CAMICB has been the primary reason for the growth and direction of this amazing program,” said Rob Felix, CMCA, PCAM, RS who serves as Secretary/Treasurer of the CAMICB Board of Commissioners. “His sincere and unwavering support of the CMCA program, the Board of Trustees, and his staff have catapulted the success of the program to international proportions and recognition. He will be missed.”

“With the help of his talented staff and the depth of their commitment to the program’s success, Matthew’s vision of this grand program will continue down the path set by his predecessor,” added Felix.
