An impressive recognition in community association management

(September 29, 2014, Las Vegas, NV) – Associates from FirstService Residential, the leading community management company in Nevada, obtained the highest designation for community association management. Caren Carrero and Melissa Ramsey were each recognized as Professional Community Association Managers (PCAM) this month.

The PCAM designation is the highest recognition for professionals who specialize in community association management. Some prerequisites for this designation include five years of management experience in community associations, completion of all six M-200 series classes, and successful passing of the CMCA exam. The applicants must also complete an extensive case study within one year from the date of application approval.

“The experience was a great opportunity to think outside of the box and help a community by providing ideas from a new perspective.  It would be great for every manager to be challenged with the PCAM,” said Melissa Ramsey, vice president of community and lifestyle services for FirstService Residential in northern Nevada. FirstService Residential employs the most PCAMs of all management companies in Nevada and has several associates with other designations.

We are thrilled to have associates that strive to go that extra mile in obtaining these designations. Community association management can be a challenging career. To achieve this recognition on top of everything else they do is very impressive. I am very proud of these individuals and congratulate them on a job well done,” said Steven Parker, president of FirstService Residential in Nevada.
