Congratulations to our 2017 G.E.M. Award nominees, finalists and winners!

The winners and finalists are listed below.  Be sure to check out the Photo Gallery for pictures of the event!

The G.E.M. (Guiding Excellence in Management) Awards recognize the individual efforts of our CAAM Certified managers, our CAASP support professionals, and our outstanding Affiliate Partners who have made a contribution above and beyond the normal course of their duties to their respective association clients and companies, and who actively support AACM and its goals.

With standards of professionalism and skill, the general public has become increasingly aware of the value and role these professionals play in the successful management of community associations.  The highly demanding functions and business practices are arguably the critical sustaining factors that contribute to a prosperous community. 

The G.E.M. Awards acknowledge the highest level of talent in our industry.  The recognition of the winners and nominees grants prestige for the individual and the company they represent - illustrating high standards of management, certification, training and commitment to excellence.
