News for community association managers

  In the News 
  • Colo. HOA to use radar to check vehicles' speed
    The homeowners association in Roxborough Park, Colo., is installing a laser radar system in the neighborhood to address speeding by drivers. However, some residents think such enforcement is beyond the association's scope of power, even though the community's streets are private property. KCNC-TV (Denver) (11/2) Email this Story
  • Trick-or-treaters need passes to get into Fla. community
    The Indigo Lakes neighborhood in Florida's Collier County planned to welcome costume-wearing children and their families on Halloween this year, but only if they had passes to get into the gated community. Before the homeowners association established the invitation rule, thousands of trick-or-treaters flocked to Indigo Lakes each year, creating traffic jams and straining candy supplies. "We would run out of candy very quickly and you didn't know anybody. ... You have to think about the kids that live here," homeowner Naomi Leamon said. WBBH-TV (Fort Myers, Fla.)

  • Lawyer: Community managers can help HOA directors
    It's essential for HOA directors to cooperate with community managers, lawyer Sara Barry writes. "Managers are not just trying to be hard noses when ... insisting that the board do or not do something," Barry writes. "... Most of them have years of experience and the board would be well served to ... listen to this experience and not discount it completely." Las Vegas Review-Journal (11/3) Email this Story

  • Crisis-management tips from NYC's Bloomberg
    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg offered a master class in crisis management as Hurricane Sandy and its remnants hit the Big Apple, Scott Eblin writes. Bloomberg projected quiet confidence, was highly visible and was utterly consistent in his message. However, Bloomberg's pre-storm messaging, which at times downplayed the threat to New Yorkers, did come in for criticism.

  • Half-measures are for losers, leader says
    Real leadership stems from having absolute belief and passion in the things you do, KWL Enterprises CEO Kevin Liles says. Employees, too, should be allowed to take ownership of their spheres of activity, even if that means letting them make mistakes along the way. "It's not about having a share in something; it's about taking ownership of every single thing you do," Liles says. The New York Times (tiered subscription model) (10/27) Email this Story

About NBC-CAM
The National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers (NBC-CAM) is a 17-year-old independent board that sets the standards for community association managers worldwide. The board administers the Certified Manager of Community Associations® (CMCA) examination, a rigorous, three-hour test that measures managers’ knowledge of community management best practices. Passing the CMCA examination and maintaining the standards of the CMCA certification is proof that a manager is a knowledgeable, ethical and professional. CMCA-certified managers have the skills to safeguard the assets of homeowners’ associations, giving homeowners peace of mind and protecting home values.

The CMCA credential is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) which means it complies with NCCA’s stringent international standards for a professional certification program. NCCA accreditation provides independent validation that the CMCA program meets or exceeds twenty-one standards concerning various aspects of the certification program including its purpose, structure, governance, psychometric foundation, policies and procedures. Accreditation validates the integrity of the CMCA program and is a mark of quality.
