Happy holidays, from ACM!

American Community Management is in the holiday spirit! During the holiday season, we find ways to bring a little extra cheer to our workplace. This week, we held an office and cubicle decorating contest at our Hanover, MD office, with prizes for the best decorations. The ACM team rose to the occasion and got very creative with their ideas, including this festive office door, gift-wrapped by Kymberly Hairston in the Accounting Department:


Emily Lutz, of the Administrative Department, went all out, bedecking her cubicle with garlands, bells, lights, gift-wrap and snow flakes:


Sandra Carroll and Carole Brady, both from the Administrative Department, set out decorative displays and hung stockings from their cubicles to show their holiday cheer:



But while all of the decorations were creative, festive and fun, Kimberly Snyder of the Administrative Department won ACM's office decorating contest! Wreaths, stockings and snowflakes hung at Kimberly's desk, which was gift-wrapped and adorned with garlands, bows, bells and more. She even used her computer as a virtual fireplace! Way to go, Kimberly!

Welcome to ACM’s New Hires!

American Community Management (ACM) would like to extend a warm welcome to our three newest Community Association Managers, Stephen Clark, Sheri Swaim and Kymberly Hariston! All three joined us this month and bring diverse skillsets to the ACM team.

Stephen Clark joins us with an extensive background in the fields of real estate, leasing consultancy, architectural administration and community and property management. He has long been active in these fields in the Prince George’s County region and will be an asset to ACM’s communities in this area.

Sheri Swaim has earned her Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) and Association Management Specialist (AMS) certifications from the Community Associations Institute (CAI), which demonstrate proficiency in the field of community association management. She has a strong background in the management of large housing cooperatives and other demanding community associations.

Kymberly Hairston joins us with more than a decade of experience in accounting, budgeting and financial services. She has served most recently as the Treasurer on the Board of her own homeowners association, giving her an intimate knowledge of the complex issues facing ACM's clients. She will work as the primary point of contact for all financial matters in many of our communities.

We are thrilled to have Stephen, Sheri and Kymberly on the ACM team and look forward to introducing them to the Board members and homeowners of the communities that they will be working with. Welcome, new hires!

Congratulations, Dorothy and Ron!

It is with regret but warm wishes that we announce the retirements of two valued team members at American Community Management (ACM). Effective November 2016, Community Managers Dorothy Roberts and Ron Rims will both be retiring from ACM after decades of dedicated service. Dorothy leaves us after 14 years and Ron leaves us after 18 years with the company, and we wish to extend our sincerest thanks and warm regards to them both.

Dorothy and Ron joined ACM at the company’s founding, and have been with us ever since. Many of us at ACM have worked alongside Dorothy and Ron for the entirety of their employment here and feel privileged to call them friends and colleagues. We wish them all the best in their future endeavors.

Dorothy and Ron had established excellent track records with the Board members and homeowners in the community associations they managed. ACM has now begun the process of re-assigning these communities to new Community Managers who are best suited to meet their needs. We look forward to continuing the tradition of outstanding service well into the future.


Thank you and congratulations, Dorothy Roberts and Ron Rims!
