CAM Services include:
- Practices requiring substantial specialized knowledge, judgment, and managerial skills when done for remuneration;
- Controlling or disbursing funds of a community association;
- Preparing budgets or other financial documents for a community association;
- Assisting in the noticing or conduct of community association meetings; and
- Coordinating maintenance for the residential development and other day-to-day services involved with the operation of a community association.
A person who performs clerical or ministerial functions under the direct supervision and control of a licensed manager or who is charged only with performing the maintenance of a community association and who does not assist in any of the management services described above is not required to be licensed.
Does a Board have to hire a CAM? No. The Board can do the work themselves, as long as they are not paid.
If you want to get a CAM License, the process is pretty straightforward.
