PCAM Case Study

The final step toward earning the PCAM designation.

The PCAM Case Study is a comprehensive examination of an actual community association, combining classroom discussion with an extensive on-site inspection. You’ll explore the community in depth, reviewing its administrative procedures, legal documents and communications; meeting with its manager, board members and key personnel; and learning about the local area. You’ll be encouraged to ask questions and openly discuss issues faced by the association.

To successfully complete the case study, you must submit a final paper using the skills acquired in the prerequisite courses (all 200-level PMDP courses) as well as information collected while visiting the host community.

Each Virtual Case Study will feature a video property tour, presentations by the host community manager and other leaders, and instructors online in a Zoom-like format.

Major components of the case study experience remain the same. For example, participants will still have 30 days to complete their reports.
