SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. – Seventeen community association managers from the Bay Area earned the Certified Community Association Manager (CCAM®) designation from the California Association of Community Managers (CACM) during the fourth quarter of 2014. The CCAM is the only California-specific designation that certifies a community manager’s in-depth knowledge of California law and ethical standards of practice in governing homeowners associations.
The Bay Area professionals awarded the CCAM designation were Wayne Butler with Condominium Management Services in Antioch; Megan Chicoine and Matt Franklin with the Helsing Group Inc. in San Ramon; Robert Dishman with Action Property Management Inc./The Infinity Owners Association in San Francisco; Laurayne Gluck with Common Interest Management Services in San Mateo; Fred Hink with the Villages Golf & Country Club in San Jose; Pao-Kai Hsu and Ashley Shenefiel with Compass Management Group Inc. in San Jose; Annamarie Jones with Massingham & Associates in Newark; Sabrina Leglu and Veronica Sandoval with Common Interest Management Services in San Mateo; Tara Lund with FirstService Residential California LLC/Centria Homeowners Association in Pleasanton; Rebecca Mauerer with Common Interest Management Services in Campbell; Thomas McCune with CondoSF Inc. in San Mateo; Elyce Philcox with Community of Harbor Bay Isle Owners Association in Alameda; Sylvia Rampi with Pacific Renaissance Plaza Master Association in Oakland; and Mary Wiegmann with Bayside Management and Leasing in Sausalito.
CACM recently conducted a consumer awareness campaign in the Bay Area to inform residents living in a homeowners association about the value of working with community managers who hold the CCAM designation. The CCAM is awarded to California community managers who have completed CACM’s educational curriculum program focusing on California law, ethical standards and best practices for community association management.
“Congratulations to these managers who exemplify the expertise and professionalism so necessary for managing California homeowners associations in today’s environment,” said David Zepponi, president and CEO of CACM. “Professional managers are tasked with guiding their volunteer HOA boards through a host of issues, including financial requirements, new California laws governing HOA living and day-to-day maintenance of the community. The CCAM certification process prepares community managers for these and many other tasks to help sustain the long-term health of the neighborhoods they serve.”
