NBC-CAM is the first and
only nationwide organization created solely to certify community association managers and to help consumers identify managers
who have demonstrated fundamental competency and knowledge in this profession. With the dramatic increase in association-governed
housing over the past 35 years (10,000 community associations in 1970 verses an estimated 286,000 today), there is an expanded
need for education in community association management. Fifty seven million Americans live in association-governed communities.
Professional managers provide
administrative, operational and managerial counsel to community association boards. They typically are represent a management
company which is the agent for the association managed and thus which is responsible
for reviewing budgets and accepting the work of contractors, directing association personnel,
if any, and seeking compliance with association covenants and restrictions.
NBC-CAM was established in
1955 by Community Associations Institute (CAI) to ensure that managers have the appropriate skills to effectively manage community
associations. More information is available http://www.nbccam.org
