Welcome to our Board Member Education and Resources Center

No matter if you’re on the board of a condominium or a homeowner association; and whether your association comprises just a handful of homes or thousands of homes in a large-scale community—Whether you manage your association through our eManageSuite platform, Partner Plus management program,or any of our other management programs, your partnership with Community Association Management can do more to ensure your success than just about anything else you can do.

Being a Board Member is a lot of responsibility, and we’re here to support you. Our mission is to help you not only succeed, but to achieve success with a minimum amount of anxiety and angst. Hopefully, we can even help you enjoy the experience. That’s why we’re providing you this free overview of what you need to know. It’s just the beginning; and we trust it will lead you to the information, tools, and resources you need to be a successful and respected leader.

Be sure to take advantage of all that Community Association Management has to offer. We know we have a lot of information to provide you, so we’ve tried to put together this online wiki to assist you.

This online portal is just one of the resources that can help you be a successful and respected leader of your association. If you can’t find what you need in this guide, call us toll-free at (888) 565-1226 (M–F, 8–6:00 ET) and we’ll be happy to help you.
