The National Board of Certification for Community Association Managers' (NBC-CAM) purpose is to ensure that community association managers practice with professionalism, integrity and knowledge. To do so, we administer the Certified Manager of Community Associations® (CMCA) certification program, the only nationally accredited certification program in the field.
The CMCA program consists of four steps:
- Coursework in accounting, collections, ethics, finance, governance and the law.
- A rigorous examination.
- Adherence to a code of professional standards and ethics.
- Commitment to continuing education and professional development.
