LAS VEGAS, May 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Associa, the world's leading community management firm, saw an astounding 30 of its employees recognized for achieving Community Associations Institute (CAI)'s Professional Manager of Community Associations (PCAM®) designation in the last year. This gives Associa close to 200 total PCAM® designees on staff, by far the highest number of any company in the industry.

"We're proud of each of our PCAM® designees recognized this past year. These individuals are loyal to Associa and dedicated to the jobs they do within our communities," says Associa's President and Chief Operating Officer Joey Carona, PCAM®.
