In this article, we will take a look at what community association managers do and why they are so important. We will also discuss some of the challenges they face and how we can show our appreciation on International Community Association Managers Day and throughout the year.

The History of International Community Association Managers Day

According to the Community Association Institute, the first International CA Managers Day was celebrated in 1992. At the time, the organization was looking for a way to raise awareness of the profession and show appreciation for all the hard-working community managers out there. The holiday has been celebrated annually ever since. 

Many community associations use the occasion to show their appreciation for their managers with special events, awards, and other gestures of thanks. So next time you see your community manager working hard to keep your association running smoothly, be sure to give them a special thank you on International CAM Day!

What Do Community Association Managers Do and Why Are They So Important?

Community association managers are responsible for a variety of things within a planned community. This can include tasks such as budgeting, upkeep of common areas, and enforcing association rules. In some communities, managers may also be responsible for hiring and supervising staff. 

Regardless of the size of the community, however, managers must always be aware of the needs of the residents and work to maintain a positive relationship with them. This can be accomplished through regular communication, prompt response to concerns, and proactive problem solving.

By working closely with the board of directors and the residents, community association managers can help to ensure that the community is a safe, enjoyable place to live.

Community association managers are important because they help to keep communities running smoothly. They play a vital role in fostering a sense of community spirit and ensuring that residents have a positive experience. 

How to Show Your Appreciation for Community Association Managers

Community association managers make residents’ lives easier by maintaining common areas and keeping things organized. But how can we show our appreciation for all they do? Here are a few ideas:

Say Thank You! 

A simple “thank you” goes a long way. Whether it’s for something big or small, take the time to express your gratitude.

Write a Positive Review

Let others know what a great job your community association manager is doing. Online reviews can be especially helpful in attracting new residents.

Make a Donation

Many community associations have fund-raising programs to support causes that are important to their members. Consider making a donation in your community association manager’s name.

Volunteer your Time 

Community association managers are always looking for volunteers to help with various tasks. Offer to pitch in and lend a helping hand.

These are just a few ways to show your appreciation for community association managers. By taking the time to show our gratitude, we can make their jobs a little easier and our communities a little better.
