On behalf of the Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority (APCHA), I was privileged on Tuesday to present my annual legislative update on HOA issues.  During the course of my presentation, we talked at length about the requirement that community association managers must by licensed by the Colorado Division of Real Estate by July 1, 2015. 

In order to take an important first step toward licensure, I recommended that community association managers think about obtaining the Certified Manager of Community Associations ("CMCA") credential offered by the Community Association Managers International Certification Board ("CAMICB) – formally known as NBC-CAM.  Here is a link to the CAMICB website that tells you everything you need to know about obtaining the CMCA credential. 

I have also communicated with CAMICB about offering CAI’s M-100 course and the CMCA examination in the Aspen area.  Stay tuned to this blog for more information on when and where this class will be offered.  You can also check the Rocky Mountain Chapter of CAI’s website for updated information as it becomes available. 

Thanks to all of my mountain friends who attended this annual event.  The amazing turnout and your continued quest to stay updated on the latest laws impacting HOAs is truly humbling and exciting!
