CBM Awarded AAMC® Designation

On April 8, 2008, Chesapeake Bay Management, Inc. was awarded the Accredited Association Management Company (AAMC®) designation by the Community Associations Institute.

Chesapeake Bay Management, Inc. is one of only 150 management companies nationwide who have earned the highest level of professional recognition in the community association field.

To earn the AAMC® distinction, management companies need at least three years of experience in community association management and at least 50 percent of their managers must have earned professional designations.

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.

CBM attended the induction ceremony at the Community Associations Institute’s National Conference on May 1, 2008.
