Being an association manager is not always filled with lots of recognition for the hours put in to make communities successful. There is a lot of negativity about the industry and the profession. But, with the help of Association Reserves, Inc., Assurant, Kevin Davis Insurance and Pacific Premier HOA and Property Banking, one on-site manager and one portfolio manager will be recognized as the 2014 Manager of the Year with live online recognition at the 2014 CAI National Conference and Exhibition, and will receive $5000. Judges are looking for “those individuals who have made their Associations better or turned them around, and are truly the best at what they do.” The deadline for applying is January 15, 2014 so don’t delay in nominating your manager or even yourself.
