Discover how a CACM California Certified Community Association Manager can improve your HOA today!

Community Managers are trained professionals that act as "Community Champions" by guiding volunteer homeowners association (HOA) board members through complicated issues to protect property values and enhance the quality of life for you and your neighbors.

Your home is where most of life's special moments take place. But owning a home also comes with a fair share of responsibilities. If you live in an HOA, a Certified Community Association Manager, CCAM®, can help. These dynamic California-certified professionals act as a "Champion" for your community by guiding HOAs through complicated issues like finances, state legislation, neighborhood disputes, and property maintenance.

Even the most experienced HOA board can reap the benefits of expert guidance and knowledge provided by a dedicated manager who achieves certification based on California-specific law, and who adheres to a professional code of ethics and best practices for the association management industry. A Community Manager works side by side with HOA board members, local public agencies and community residents to safeguard everyone's interests. Your association performs best when active volunteer board members and a top-notch professional Community Manager work together to establish and maintain community standards that protect property values.

More than 14.3 million people, about 38 percent of California's population, live in a HOA-managed community, many of which are run by professionally trained Community Association Managers. Because these "Community Champions" take care of the business side of living in a HOA community, residents can relax more and live life better.

Make sure your Community Manager has a Certified Community Association Manager (CCAM) certification from CACM to ensure you have a Champion for your HOA board and community!
