RealManage is pleased to announce that Kara Cermak, CMCA®, AMS®, PCAM®, President of Rowell Incorporated, AAMC®, has been selected as a member of the Board of Trustees for CAI® National and has been elected to the CAI® National’s Community Association Managers Council. RealManage took over management of the Rowell AAMC® managed communities in mid-2017 adding them to its ever growing Illinois footprint.

With over 26 years of experience in the community association industry, Kara has served as a board member of CAI® Illinois’ Board of Directors, serving a year as the President. She has also appeared on the NBC local station in Chicago; been quoted in Chicago Crains Business; served two terms on the Community Association Managers Council previously and has been a member of CAI®’s National Faculty for eight years. In 2016, Kara was awarded The Influential Women in Business Award from the Daily Herald’s Business Ledger.

Ms. Kara Cermak states “It has long been my goal to provide leadership to the community association management industry because our industry is comparatively quite young. While I have contributed locally, and continue to do so, I am excited to provide help and guidance to the industry on a national level, through CAI® and by working as part of the RealManage team. I look forward to contributing my expertise, and my passion, through both of these avenues that I am blessed to be involved with.”

“Kara’s passion for developing members of our industry is second to none.” states Mr. Christopher Ayoub, RealManage President “We are fortunate to have her as part of the RealManage family and look forward to the amazing impact she will have on our industry.”
