John Cligny of the Association Management Co. in Pleasanton has been re-elected to the board of directors for the California Association of Community Managers, joining 13 other professionals from around the state who were elected to the board.
CACM offers California-specific training and education for community association managers. Its board is responsible for establishing and overseeing programs and policies and for upholding the association's Code of Professional Ethics and Standards of Practice.
The group also serves as an advisory body for education and certification programs which focus strictly on California HOA management.
"With more than 14 million Californians living in HOAs and more than 1,200 state laws pertaining to HOAs now in effect, community association management has become extremely complex," said David Zepponi, the organization's president and CEO. "Homeowners associations, led by their boards of directors, are mini-governments responsible for everything from financial reporting and legal obligations to general maintenance and technology upgrades for their communities."
"Our goal at CACM is to provide the latest training and education about managing HOAs in California for our managers and affiliate members so they can deliver the highest standard of service to their homeowners," Zepponi added.
Based in Laguna Hills, Calif., CACM is the only community association management organization in the nation to offer a California-only educational program leading to the designations of Certified Community Association Manager and Master of Community Association Management for industry professionals.
CACM's membership is comprised of nearly 3,000 California-based professionals from the community association management industry. California is home to more than 50,200 associations. For more information on CACM, visit www.cacm.org/
