Recognizing An Extraordinary Volunteer And Industry Leader

By Greg Smith, CMCA, AMS, PCAM , Chair of the CAMICB Board of Commissioners

At the CAI Annual Conference and Expo in Dallas this month, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to offer a special recognition to a dedicated, passionate and devoted industry leader who has spent countless volunteer hours supporting and advancing the community association management profession and the CMCA credential.

Sandy Denton was Chair of the CAMICB Board of Commissioners for the past two years, but her service to CAMICB, and our profession, began long before that. 

From her continued work as a Subject Matter Expert on the CAMICB Exam Development Committee for the past eight years, and her service on the Board of Commissioners from 2017 – 2022, to her former roles as CAI President as well as Chair of the Foundation for Community Association Research, Sandy remains a steadfast advocate for the profession and a devoted champion of the CMCA credentialing program. In fact, I believe Sandy is the first and only person ever to chair all three organizations—CAI, FCAR, and CAMICB!

I’ve had the privilege of knowing Sandy for many years; she’s one of those volunteers who consistently contributes in both visible and invisible ways. She’s the type of person you always know – or hear about – because she’s so impactful.

During her tenure as Chair of the CAMICB Board of Commissioners, it was very important to Sandy that CAMICB focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Under her leadership, we developed and adopted a DEI statement and approach which is now a significant element of our strategic plan. Sandy also felt strongly that we revisit and reestablish our strategic plan – not a small undertaking – which we accomplished at Conference last year thanks to her clear and thoughtful guidance.

To say it’s inspiring that Sandy contributed so much over the years while simultaneously building her own extraordinary career in her home state of Texas – is an understatement.

We’re grateful Sandy continues to generously share her time, knowledge and passion as an SME on the CAMICB Exam Development Committee, and she remains a renowned CAI faculty member and legislative advocate through her work on the CAI Government & Public Affairs Committee and the Texas Legislative Action Committee. 

On behalf of the officers, commissioners and staff of CAMICB and on behalf of our profession, thank you, Sandy, for your extraordinary service and unwavering support.
