The Colorado Division of Real Estate has just published emergency interim rules on community association manager licensure.  The rules will go into effect today and will continue in effect through May 6, 2015.  Here is the notice from the Division of Real Estate with links to the emergency rules:


***Important Notice***

Notice of Emergency Rule Adoption 
Community Association Manager Licensing

(Effective January 6, 2015 through May 6, 2015)

On January 2, 2015 the Director of the Division of Real Estate (Division) held an emergency rule-making hearing to take public testimony with regard to the community association manager emergency rules pertaining to the education, testing, licensing and insurance requirements needed for licensure.  As a result of the hearing and recommendations received, the Division has incorporated changes to the proposed emergency rules of January 2, 2015.  The Director of the Division finds that immediate adoption of the emergency rules is imperatively necessary to comply with state law and for the preservation of public health, safety or welfare and that compliance with the rule-making requirements of § 24-4-103, C.R.S., applicable to non-emergency rules, would be contrary to public interest.  Therefore, on January 6, 2015 the following emergency rules were adopted and will remain in effect for 120 days, expiring on May 6, 2015.

As the emergency rules will expire on May 6, the Division will conduct a permanent rule-making hearing at the end of February or beginning of March to consider for adoption all the program rules.  The specific date and location of the hearing will be noticed to the public by the middle of January when the proposed rules are noticed with the Colorado Secretary of State.   As with all rule-making in Colorado, public comments will be accepted by the Division once the rules are noticed and public testimony will be heard at the hearing.
