G.E.M. Awards ~ Guiding Excellence in Management 

What Are They?

The G.E.M. Awards recognize the individual efforts of our CAAM community managers, CAASP support professionals and outstanding Affiliate Partners who have made a contribution above and beyond the normal course of their duties to their association clients and company. In addition, they actively support AACM and its goals.

Do You Know an Amazing Community Manager?
What makes a great community manager? Do you know a community manager who has: Exceptional community retention? Reduced delinquent accounts or increased revenues? How about a manager who organized community events and created a "sense of community" for their residents? We're willing to bet you can think of at least five community managers that have made a lasting and significant difference for their communities and we want to know about every single one! 

There are a total of four (4) categories for community managers (with subcategories for on-site, portfolio level I and portfolio level II), as well as the CAASP - Excellence in Service for support professionals and Instructor of the Year for AACM approved instructors from our Affiliate Partners and Management Members.  AACM also recognizes our Outstanding Affiliate Partners with the O.P.A.L.
