Omega Property Management recently joined an elite group of community association management companies that have earned the Accredited Association Management Company (AAMC®) credential from Community Associations Institute (CAI). Omega Property Management is one of fewer than 250 management companies worldwide – including seven in the Twin Cities – who have earned the highest level of professional recognition in the community association management field.
“Earning this accreditation is not easy. I’m very proud of our team and what we have achieved,” Lance Stendal, president of Omega Property Management, said. “Our experience and commitment to excellence is reflected in this credential as well as Association Manager Jim Rosvold earning the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM®) credential and our other managers continuing their industry designations.”
Omega Property Management is one of the most experienced and advanced homeowner association management companies in the Twin Cities.
CAI is an international organization dedicated to building better communities. More than 62 million Americans live in an estimated 315,000 association-governed communities.
To earn the AAMC credential, a management company must have three years of experience in community association management and at least 50% of its managers must have earned professional designations. In addition, a company senior manager must hold the PCAM credential.
“Professionals who earn CAI credentials maximize the value they can provide to their community association clients,” said CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. “Not only have these professionals demonstrated a personal commitment to self-improvement, but they have also elevated their practical knowledge and expertise. That’s what all community associations need, and what board members and residents deserve.”
Professional managers provide administrative, operational and managerial counsel to community association boards. Managers typically are responsible for managing budgets and contractors, directing association personnel and overseeing compliance with association covenants and restrictions.
CAI and its 60 chapters work on behalf of the professionals and volunteers engaged in the management and governance of homeowner and condominium associations, cooperatives and other planned communities. CAI’s 31,000-plus members include community association volunteer leaders, managers, management companies, and businesses that provide products and services to these communities.
