In addition to the CMCA, Michael also holds both the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and the Society of Industrial and Office Realtor (SIOR) designations. Both designations are a respected symbol of knowledge, production, and ethics in the real estate industry.

To obtain and maintain the CMCA credential, a manager must complete comprehensive course work, pass a National Certification Examination, adhere to the CMCA Standards of Professional Conduct, and take continuing education courses to recertify.

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 versus 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 responsible for managing budgets and contractors, directing association personnel, and overseeing compliance with association covenants and restrictions.

NBC-CAM was established in 1995 by Community Associations Institute (CAI) to ensure that managers have the appropriate skills to effectively manage community associations. More information is available at www.nbccam.org.

Waldvogel Commercial Properties, Inc., under Waldvogel’s supervision, manages the homeowner’s association of three downtown condominium properties, Campbell Garage Lofts, The Candy Factory and Fulton Motor Lofts.
