  • N.J. homeowners are wary of town taking over dune project
    More than a dozen residents in Toms River, N.J., have failed to sign easements that would give the town a strip of their land so it can rebuild protective dunes that were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. The homeowners say they are worried they might be obligated to open their beaches to the public if parts of it belong to the town. "We know we need to put in dunes. Dunes are definitely a lifeline for any beach community," says Patricia Suriani, member of the Surf Cottages HOA board. "What we have wanted up to this point is more clarification of giving this easement." The Star-Ledger (Newark, N.J.) (1/5) Email this Story

    If you're getting ready to interview candidates for a job opening, start by reading over their applications and developing a list of questions, Karen Axelton writes.

Also, don't use your computer or engage in any other activity that could distract you during the interview. NetworkSolutions.com (1/3) 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.

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.
