Rossmar & Graham, Arizona's largest and most experienced full-service community association management firm, announces Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation for local Community Manager, Terrance Smith. Having completed this rigorous program, Mr. Smith has joined an elite group of community association managers that have earned the (PCAM) designation from the Community Association Institute (CAI). Only 1,200 managers nationwide have earned this certificate which is the highest level of professional recognition in the community association field.
