MIRAMAR, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Association Services of Florida (ASF), an Associa company, proudly congratulates Howard Carter, General Manager for Sunrise Lakes Phase I, who recently earned the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation from the Community Associations Institute (CAI).
