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 ACMHome.com 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!

CAROL ALLEN

Senior Regional Manager 2001-2016

 Early this morning we were informed by family members that Carol lost her battle with cancer. We were so encouraged when just this weekend we were told that she was resuming treatment and had been moved to a rehabilitation facility. 

Carol was part of our senior management team but more importantly she was a mentor, a teacher and friend to all who came in contact with her. She was a voice for  those who could not speak for themselves, a talent her community boards and our senior management learned to appreciate. Our ACM staff members and all of our community members who had the opportunity to work with her will miss her ability to make the business of community management work as a personal relationship.

She joined us in April of 1998, and has been with ACM since its inception in 2001. She has earned several professional designations as a member of the Community Associations Institute.  Prior to being named Senior Regional Manager, Carol was promoted to Senior Community/Portfolio Manager in 2009. She consistently demonstrated her leadership capabilities, providing supervision and direction to ACM’s team of Community Administrative Managers during ACM’s transition to a region-based team-driven Community Management structure. Our condolences go out to Carol’s family and friends.  We will all miss her tremendously.
