“It is important for employees in the apartment industry to have regular, ongoing training. NAAEI professional designations, such as the CAM, offer that. They also provide employees with a tremendous sense of accomplishment, which is an essential component for learning.”- Former NAAEI president Jeff Lowry, CAPS, President of operations for Lubbock, Texas-based Madera Residential.

After taking the CAM class, I began to really become involved with the apartment association and soon found myself teaching NALP and CAM modules.” - Sandra Fick, NALP, CAM, community manager of Charter Properties’ Long Creek Club Apartments in Charlotte, N.C.

“Being a Certified Apartment Manager is more than just a job, it's a lifestyle. I find myself living, breathing and sleeping all things involving multi-family housing. It is not often that you come across someone that enjoys going to work each day. I find excitement in challenging the status quo and improving my community and my company in every possible way. - Stephanie Anderson, CAM, senior community manager at Harbor Village Apartments in Richmond, Va.
“I was recruited by my current management company. They loved me but on paper I wasn’t quite as great as some of the other candidates. I didn’t have that real-life experience.

That gave me the extra edge which gave me the position I currently have. - Stephanie Anderson, CAM, senior community manager at Harbor Village Apartments in Richmond, Va. (taken from video interview)
