Bridget Rodriguez earns CMCA designation, continues career development education
LAS VEGAS – In a constant effort to continue her education, Bridget Rodriguez, community manager with Community Management Group, recently earned her Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) designation, a national certification for community management and general practices of community management professionals.
Rodriguez’s dedication to her profession led her to seek the optional CMCA designation to better serve her company and the homeowners associations with which she works.
“In my profession, expertise and ethics are the two signs of professionalism,” Rodriguez said, adding that earning the designation has provided her with a wealth of information at the national level that can be applied at the local level. “The CMCA designation helps increase my value to the communities I work with by giving me advanced knowledge in contracting, customer service, ethics, financial management and more. It allows me to better serve those communities all while being a more valuable addition to Community Management Group.”
To earn CMCA designation, community managers enroll in a professional management development program course, which studies the essentials of community association management. After completion of the course and the application, students complete an exam.
In addition to CMCA, Rodriguez also plans to complete the requirements for the Association Management Specialist (AMS) certification, the second level of career development for community association managers, later this year.
“It goes to show our community managers take their careers seriously, and it’s comforting for homeowners to know they have true professionals working for their best interests,” said Courtney Murphy, president and supervising community manager for Community Management Group. “Continuing education also makes me certain our community managers are as up to date on their career field as possible as well as it shows a commitment to quality.”
Established by longtime Las Vegan Courtney Murphy in 2009, Community Management Group is a Nevada-based community association management company serving assorted planned unit developments in the Las Vegas Valley.
Providing top customer service in all facets of its work, CMG works with homeowners, HOA board members and vendors to assist in decisions to maintain communities’ property values and ensure the preservation of associations’ financial health. The company’s services – handled by a team of certified managers – balance fiscal responsibility, cutting edge technology (which is unique in the field), homeowner education and a positive atmosphere for all its clients, from single family and business parks to condominiums and master planned communities.
