California Certification Awarded To Nine Bay Area Professionals

San Francisco – Nine community association managers from around the Bay Area have earned the “Certified Community Association Manager” (CCAM®) designation from the California Association of Community Managers (CACM). The CCAM is the only California-specific certification awarded to professionals working in the community association management field in California. New CCAMs have successfully completed a rigorous educational curriculum which focuses strictly on California law and best practices in community association management.

The Bay Area professionals who earned the CCAM designation during the second quarter of 2013 were Matthew Brecht, Charise Johnson, Bill McAdams, Chiquita Redmond and Justin Sacoolas, all with the Helsing Group Inc. in San Ramon; Camille Mar with Massingham & Associates in Concord; Claudia Martinez with American Management Services Inc. in San Jose; Jackie Mast with Christison Co. in Livermore; and Roberta Romer with PML Management Corp. in San Mateo.

“Congratulations to all of our new CCAMs, who have dedicated themselves to providing the highest level of professional community management in California,” said Karen Conlon, president and CEO of CACM. “One out of every three families in California lives in a community association. It’s that fact that makes professional community association management a multi-billion dollar industry in California. California law is extremely complex and becoming more so every year, which is why the educational curriculum leading to CCAM certification focuses strictly on California law and ethical standards of practice.”
