CONGRATULATIONS to Teresa Bosteter for achieving the PCAM (Professional Community Association Manager) designation!
The PCAM designation is the highest professional recognition available nationwide to managers who specialize in community association management. These experienced managers have demonstrated advanced skills and knowledge. It is the pinnacle of community association management.
PCAM (Professional Community Association Manager) is not just a designation but the journey of a lifetime. Beginning the adventure requires earning the CMCA certification (Certified Manager of Community Associations) that is administered by Community Associations Institute’s affiliate organization, the National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers (NBC-CAM), highly recommended for all community association managers. It can elevate your credibility and your community association’s confidence in you.
Upon completion of the CMCA the next destination is the AMS (Association Management Specialist). The AMS designation demonstrates a higher level of commitment to your career and the community association industry. An AMS designation is recommended for managers who want to enhance their career opportunities by increasing their knowledge and expertise.
As individuals yearn for completion of the PCAM designation the obstacles become increasingly more difficult, mandating five years of experience and the completion of six courses in detailed specific fields that involve passing challenging exams. One can then see the light at the end of tunnel, bliss, completion of a goal — but not until the ultimate challenge is achieved: the Case Study. The Case Study is an emotional roller coaster that requires a PCAM candidate to learn every minute detail of the property holding the case study and use knowledge from their years of experience and coursework to create a flowing, understandable document. As the saying goes, the cream rises to the top and so do individuals who challenge themselves to achieve this goal.
The PCAM designation, achieved by Teresa Bosteter in July, 2013 is the highest professional recognition available nationwide to managers who specialize in community association management — a designation second to none and worthwhile in achieving professional respect in the Industry.
