Community Associations Institute (CAI) Partnership

American Community Management has been a member of Community Associations Institute (CAI) since our founding in 2001. In that time, we have partnered with CAI to provide educational courses, certification programs, free expert seminars and more to Board members and ACM staff alike. This long-standing partnership provides significant benefits to all ACM communities.

CAI is the leading trade organization dedicated to community association management. With more than 33,500 members, CAI works in partnership with 60 chapters, including the Chesapeake Chapter, of which ACM is a member. CAI provides information, education and resources to the homeowner volunteers who govern communities and the professionals who support them.

Through our long-standing membership in CAI, ACM taps into a diverse and highly-qualified network of community management professionals to deliver the best results to our clients. CAI has helped ACM grow our preferred vendors list of over 250 licensed and certified contractors, affording greater selection to our clients in the request for proposal process.

ACM also partners frequently with CAI in our quarterly Board seminars, which are free informational sessions often sponsored by CAI or featuring a guest speaker from CAI. These sessions are open to all Board members and are a cornerstone of ACM’s educational initiative.

The ACM Gym Is Open For Business

At ACM, we value our employees and place great emphasis on helping them lead fit and healthy lifestyles. As part of our recent office build-out, we added new offices, conference rooms and suites to our home office in Hanover, MD. Now, we are opening a brand new fitness center exclusively for ACM staff members!

ACM has long provided employees with discounts and credits for gym memberships in order to incentivize a healthy lifestyle throughout our company. However, with routine Board meetings, property inspections, contractor meetings, hearings and special projects, it can be difficult for our team members to find free time for the gym.

Now, ACM’s own gym is open for business! Our facility includes elliptical machines, bench presses, lifting stations, treadmills, rowing machines, exercise bikes, free weights and a wall-mounted big-screen television. We are proud of this initiative and encourage all ACM staff, clients and partners to join us in leading a fit and healthy lifestyle.

Thank you, Peter!

It is with regret but warm wishes that ACM says goodbye to Peter Giguere, Accounting Manager, this week. Peter has been with ACM since its founding and, in that time, has developed expertise in the field of community association financial management that has served as an asset to ACM and each of our clients. Peter was instrumental in overhauling ACM's accounting procedures to reflect industry best-practices and he helped incorporate the leading software systems to streamline financial management for our clients.

This week, the entire ACM team gathered in our Hanover office to thank Peter for his years of service at ACM and to bid him the very best of luck in his future endeavors. Peter will continue building on his accounting and community association management experience in the public sector, where he will no doubt be a tremendous asset to his next employer. Please join the entire ACM team in saying thank you and congratulations to Peter!

ACM Announces an Exciting New Community Portal Experience

A faster, friendlier ACMHome is on the horizon!  ACM is excited to announce a new software platform set to launch later this Fall!

This platform will replace SenEarthco.  Since 2010, when ACM launched SenEarthCo, we have been collecting feedback from our clients in order to continuously improve and refine usability, efficiency and transparency.  In order to best incorporate those features most needed by our clients, we began searching outside our current platform.  ACM talked with several software companies to find a platform that would provide the transparency and tracking everyone wanted.  After a long and extensive search, ACM has chosen to partner with eUnify.

eUnify's unique platform will provide users with comparable features currently available with SenEarthCo, plus many new key features:

  • Creation of an Action Item list
  • Submission of a request directly through the website (enabling fewer emails and increased response time)!
  • Online Voting
  • A fully integrated mobile app for field work
  • And so much more!
Sample Homepage - Desktop

Fieldwork Mobile App

Stay tuned for more details on the exciting launch of eUnify…..bringing you a faster, more user-friendly, ACMHome!
