Albuquerque, NM – May 26, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Canyon Gate Real Estate Services, an Associa company, is proud to announce Vice President Kimberly Corcoran recently received her Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation through Community Associations Institute (CAI).
She becomes just the fifth PCAM recipient that is currently active in the state of New Mexico. Canyon Gate now employs three of the state’s five active PCAM designees, as she joins colleagues Evelyn Saavedra and Jerry Parsons.
The PCAM designation is the highest professional recognition available nationwide to managers who specialize in community association management and is recommended for experienced managers who want to demonstrate advanced skills and knowledge and who wish to be recognized as one of the best and most experienced managers in the nation.
To earn the PCAM designation, a community manager must have at least five years direct community association management experience, successfully pass their CMCA (Certified Manager of Community Associations) examination, pass six related courses through CAI and complete an extensive case study among numerous other items.
“Kim has now obtained the ultimate achievement in the community management industry,” said Roger Kinney, Canyon Gate President and CEO. “We are very proud of her constant hard work and dedication. Her commitment to continuing education and professional development is a great asset to both Canyon Gate and the communities we manage.”
Along with her duties as Vice President, Corcoran supervises all facets of the management division. She is directly responsible for training and supervision of community managers, assistant community managers and compliance inspectors.
In addition to the PCAM designation, Corcoran has also earned the CMCA and AMS designations and is a founding member and active participant of the CAI-New Mexico Chapter. She also serves as the chapter’s Executive Director. Corcoran holds a bachelor’s degree from Wright State University.
