Town & Country of Greenwood, SC Community Association Manager Earns Top Industry Professional Credential
Brandon Williamson of Town & Country Community Association Management Division in Greenwood, SC recently joined the elite group of community association managers who have earned the Association Management Specialist (AMS®) credential from Community Associations Institute (CAI). Only 6,000 managers worldwide who have earned this prestigious designation.
Williamson has been with Town & Country since October 2011 as a Property Manager and Realtor. Along with his new credential of AMS, he also holds the title of Certified Manager of Community Associations. He is a graduate of Clemson with a BS degree in Construction Science and Management. Originally from Donalds, SC, he and his wife Deidre and son reside in Greenwood.
For over 50 years, Town & Country has been recognized as a leader in the Construction and Property Management fields. Along with these two divisions, the company also provides management services to Home Owner Associations throughout the Carolinas with its Community Association Management Division. Town & Country Maintenance & Remodeling is their division specializing in providing remodeling and home maintenance services.
CAI is a national organization dedicated to building better communities. More than 60 million Americans live in an estimated 315,000 association-governed communities.
To earn the AMS credential, managers must have at least two years of experience in community association management and complete advanced course work. In addition, they must have already earned the basic industry certification for managers—the Certified Manager of Community Associations credential.
“Professionals who earn CAI credentials maximize the value they can provide to their community association clients,” said CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. “Not only have these professionals demonstrated a personal commitment to self-improvement, but they have also elevated their practical knowledge and expertise. That’s what all community associations need, and what board members and residents deserve.”
Professional managers provide administrative, operational and managerial counsel to the boards that govern homeowners and condominium associations. Managers typically are responsible for managing budgets and contractors, directing association personnel and overseeing compliance with association covenants and restrictions.
CAI and its 60 chapters work on behalf of the professionals and volunteers engaged in the management and governance of homeowner and condominium associations, cooperatives and other planned communities. CAI’s nearly 32,000 members include community association volunteer leaders, managers, management companies and businesses that provide products and services to these communities.
