“The Bay Area continues to produce outstanding community association managers who are committed to the highest level of professionalism in order to serve their homeowners and homeowners associations,” said Karen Conlon, president and CEO of CACM. “The CCAM designation requires that candidates learn state law, standards of ethical practice, client relations and communications for California homeowners associations, which can be extremely challenging. We are proud of each of these new CCAMs who have worked very hard to earn their certification.”
