BROOKLYN PARK, Minn., Feb. 3, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Associa Minnesota is proud to announce that Community Managers Danielle Thompson, Cordelia Cronen and Insurance Manager Maureen Porter recently attained their Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) designation.
The CMCA designation is recognized by Community Associations Institute (CAI) and is the only national certification program designed exclusively for managers of homeowner and condominium associations and cooperatives. The CMCA recognizes individuals who have demonstrated the fundamental knowledge required to manage community associations.
"Danielle, Cordelia and Maureen all began with us around the same time and I guess their great attitudes and superior work ethics have rubbed off on each other because for all three to achieve this distinction in such a short time is remarkable," says Associa Minnesota President Lance Govang. "Our employees are encouraged to seek industry recognized status and these managers have taken that encouragement and run with it."
Danielle Thompson is a community manager who has been with Associa Minnesota for three years and in the community management industry for five years. She manages 13 local communities comprised of more than 2,000 residences.
