Blowing Rock, NC – April 24, 2020 — Chris Wetmore, CAMS, Blowing Rock, NC, recently joined the elite group of community association managers who have earned the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM®) credential from Community Associations Institute (CAI). Wetmore is one of more than 2,200 managers worldwide who have earned the highest level of professional recognition in the community association field.
Wetmore has been in the community association management industry for nine years and has worked at his current community, Blue Ridge Mountain Club, for over three. Prior to moving to the NC mountains, he managed condominiums and townhomes in the Charlotte, NC area. He is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys spending time with his wife Beth and their two sons. Wetmore is a self-proclaimed “plant nerd” who is involved with several plant societies and at one point had three greenhouses on his property. He is currently a member of the Blowing Rock Appearance Advisory Committee, a group that works on various town projects.
To earn the PCAM credential, managers must have five years of community association management experience and complete more than 100 hours of course work. In addition, credentialed PCAMs must fulfill continuing education and service requirements, as well as adhere to a code of ethics.
“Professionals who earn CAI credentials maximize the value they can provide to their community association clients,” said CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. “Not only have these professionals demonstrated a personal commitment to self-improvement, but they have also elevated their practical knowledge and expertise. That’s what all community associations need, and what board members and residents deserve.”
CAI is an international organization dedicated to building better communities. CAI and its 60 chapters work on behalf of the professionals and volunteers engaged in the management and governance of homeowner and condominium associations, cooperatives and other planned communities. CAI’s nearly 32,000 members include community association volunteer leaders, managers, management companies and businesses that provide products and services to these communities.
