PCAM awarded to Kelly Shields, 1st in NE North Carolina!

Community Association Manager Earns Top Industry Professional Credential

Seaside Management is thrilled to announce that Vice President Kelly Shields recently earned her Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) credential from Community Associations Institute (CAI).  Shields is the only community association manager in northeast North Carolina to achieve this highest level of designation in the field, with the next closest PCAM-designees in North Carolina being located to the west in Raleigh and to the south in Wilmington.  She holds two other CAI designations, and with this third is one of only 2,200 management professionals worldwide to achieve the designation.

To earn the PCAM designation, managers must have at least five years of community association management experience and complete more than 100 hours of course work in law, communications, asset protection, risk management, facility management and more.  After completing the prerequisite coursework and qualifying for the program, Shields attended a rigorous Case Study program in Florida in May.  She then was required to prepare a comprehensive and detailed case study report analyzing a large, mixed-use community in Orlando.

“Managers with the PCAM designation are the gold standard in community management”, said Jeff Shields, President of Seaside Management.  “They are recognized as top-tier professionals and we are very proud of what Kelly has accomplished and the elevated level of expertise it brings to our company.  That’s what community associations need, and what board members and residents deserve.”

Seaside Management, located in Kitty Hawk, is the professional community association managers for over thirty homeowner and condominium associations on and around the Outer Banks.
