Manager Education

CAI's Manager Education Program consists of local seminars and national Professional Management Development Program courses designed specifically for the continuing education of community association managers. These programs are especially intended for managers interested in professional development, and those managers who are interested in achieving a CAI professional manager designation or re-certifications.


CAI's Online Community for Managers

CAI's Community Association Managers Online Community offers a private online forum to share and learn from other manager members. In the community, you can post questions for other members to answer, seek feedback from other managers on a particular issue you are dealing with in your community, read about upcoming chapter manager programs, and interact with the chapter staff as well as other manager members. Before you join, please review and keep in mind the rules of the road! Upon admission to the community, you agree to the participation guidelines. Admission is by invitation only  once the chapter confirms your membership is current. In order to join, you must have a Google+ account.

Chapter Manager Education Courses

CAI's chapter manager education is a series of seminars for community association managers who are interested in furthering their education in the management, governance and maintenance of community associations. Attendees receive three continuing education credits for each class. These credits will help satisfy the education requirements to achieve CAI's PCAM designation and to maintain the CMCA certification and AMS designation.

April 1: Buried Alive: Recognizing & Responding to Hoarders

What exactly is hoarding and what are the signs that you may have a hoarder in your community. More importantly, why should you care? Hoarding is often defined as a compulsive activity - the saving of items that appear to have little or no value, and that typically has adverse effects on individuals including emotional, social and physical dangers. The accumulation of clutter can have a very serious and dangerous impact on neighbors, neighboring units and the community as a whole. In addition, in 2013, researchers designated hoarding as a mental disorder and that change impacts how your community should respond to a hoarder. This seminar will provide timely information on how to identify and respond to hoarders in your community.
