Karen Conlon, longtime president and CEO of the California Association of Community Managers, was recently presented with a Joint Resolution by California Assembly Member Ed Chau and State Senator Mark DeSalunier honoring Conlon for her many contributions to California’s community association management industry. Chau is chair of the Assembly Housing Committee and DeSalunier is chair of the Senate Housing Committee.
The resolution commends Conlon for “promoting and enhancing the highest level of performance for community managers in the state of California” and for her efforts to establish the Certified Community Association Manager (CCAM®) designation – the first and only certification for community managers that focuses strictly on California law. Conlon also founded CACM’s Professional Standards Committee which developed and enforces the organization’s Professional Code of Ethics among its members.
Conlon was named president and CEO of CACM in 1992 and over the past 22 years has spearheaded numerous changes to California law to ensure the ethical, professional governance of homeowners associations statewide. Throughout her career, Conlon has held several industry positions on both the regional and national level and has served on numerous task forces for the California Department of Real Estate. Conlon is the author of DRE Regulations and Corporate Practices for California Community Associations, The HOA Puzzle, Leadership & Ethical Decision Making and the co-author of Parliamentary Procedures for California Community Associations.
Conlon will officially retire from CACM on Dec. 31, 2014.
Based in Laguna Hills, Calif., CACM is the only community association management organization in the nation to offer a California-only educational program leading to the designation of Certified Community Association Manager and Master of Community Association Management (MCAM®) for industry professionals. CACM’s membership is comprised of nearly 3,000 California-based professionals from the community association management industry. California is home to more than 48,500 associations.
