Our leadership position in the Association Management Industry has been earned through our commitment to professionalism, integrity, innovation, and dedication to ensure the success of our Client Communities. Our attention to detail, availability, and timely response to inquiries, reporting, and physical maintenance of your community are keys to our success.
The underlying success of our company resides with the individual success of our Waccamaw Team members. Waccamaw Management, LLC requires all Managers to be CAI/NBC-CAM certified with a minimum designation of CMCA (Certified Manager of Community Associations). Many of our Managers are certified AMS’s (Association Management Specialists) and several of our Managers are PCAM’s (Professional Community Association Managers), the highest level of certification. Waccamaw Management fully supports all employees’ continuing education efforts. We provide our team members with competitive pay and benefits and mentor them with executive and management team support. Waccamaw is a learning organization, constantly pushing to improve. One of the ways we do this is to underwrite the expense of our staff’s continued education and the cost of membership in professional organizations, coursework, and conferences. Staff meetings are held monthly with professionals and service providers, keeping us at the forefront of changing trends and new technology. We even offer a “board member boot camp” with local attorneys to assist the board with a basic understanding of their legal responsibilities and liabilities.
In 2009, Waccamaw Management joined the elite group of fewer than 150 (just 5%) community management companies in the USA who have earned the Accredited Association Management Company (AAMC) designation from the Community Associations Institute (CAI). With more than 32,000 members around the world, CAI is the premier national and international professional organization dedicated to ensuring professionalism and vibrancy in planned communities. CAI’s mission is: “To inspire professionalism, effective leadership and responsible citizenship, ideals reflected in communities that are preferred places to call home.” Waccamaw Management’s Team serves the CAI organization in leadership roles in South Carolina and nationally. CAI and its sister accrediting organization, the National Board of Certification for Association Managers (NBC-CAM), provide individual professional certifications and designations as well. Waccamaw Management’s individual managers and executives have achieved an extraordinary array of these professional credentials, up to and including the PCAM (Professional Community Association Manager) for 5 of our senior managers, the highest credential provided by these organizations. Other credentials obtained by our management staff include the AMS (Association Management Specialist) and CMCA (Certified Manager of Community Associations). For more information on these professional credentials and to verify those achieved by our team members, please visit www.caionline.org
Waccamaw Management’s Executive Team also participates in the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) conferences. ULI’s mission is: “To provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities, worldwide”. ULI also has more than 30,000 members and is the primary organization for the collaboration of best practices in determining real estate development trends and practices. By keeping our fingers on the pulse of the real estate development industry, we can better advise our clients on how they may adapt to remain relevant in an ever-changing world.
