Crowninshield Management Corp. is committed to being a leader in the field and having its employees up-to-date on industry education and trends. Property Manager John Kadim shares his story of how Crowninshield has supported his professional growth.
“In my experience, Crowninshield has definitely proven to be very pro-education. I have had the opportunity to take a number of courses through the Community Associations Institute (CAI) on areas ranging from physical maintenance to community budgets and finances. I was able to obtain my Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) and Association Management Specialist (AMS) designations through CAI from the courses I have taken. I have also taken a handful of courses through the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) and was able to obtain my Accredited Residential Manager (ARM) designation as well,” says Kadim.
It is important to Crowninshield that the managers utilize the education opportunities that are available. Continuing education plays an important role in increasing the value of service managers can provide to communities and how they conduct business. It also speaks volumes of the company as a whole, employing competent managers and fostering their growth through education. These courses work towards keeping them in touch with the constantly changing rules and policies, while providing credit towards keeping certifications active with CAI’s education requirements.
“I was also encouraged by my company to join the Program Advisory Committee through CAI. The committee works hard to oversee the education courses and requirements, facilitate informative seminars and webinars, and work to engage involvement from other members. I am very lucky that my company supports me in my involvement with CAI as it is a great way to keep up with the ever-changing policies in this industry,” says Kadim.
