Somerset, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 04, 2014
The Community Associations Institute, a nationwide organization for property management professionals, has named Glen A. Masullo, CMCA, PCAM, of Somerset to its national Government Affairs’ Managers Licensing Task Force.
Masullo, who is chief financial officer of Regency Management Group LLC, also serves on the CAI-New Jersey chapter’s Legislation Action Committee, which recently was designated the chapter’s “2013 Committee of the Year” for its ongoing efforts in Trenton to license property managers, as well as for its advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill.
“CAI committees in nine states, including New Jersey, are currently seeking licensure for managers of condominium, cooperative and homeowner associations, and it’s a primary goal for our team,” Masullo said.
“We almost got it done this year—a property manager licensing bill passed both houses of the state legislature, only to be pocket-vetoed by the governor. We’re working now to gather data to address the governor’s concerns, and we’ll try again,” he said
That work led to Masullo’s national CAI task force appointment, he said. “The national organization is looking to us for policy guidance to aid chapters around the country as they explore manager licensure in their states.”
Legislative Summit Seeks FEMA Relief Eligibility
Other New Jersey members of the national CAI Managers Licensing Task Force are attorney Ronald L. Perl of Hill Wallack, Princeton; attorneys Jennifer Loheac and David J. Ramsey of Becker & Poliakoff, Morristown; and Sue Howe, CMCA, AMS, PCAM, of RCP Management, Monroe.
Masullo and colleagues from CAI-NJ’s Legislation Action Committee were among CAI delegates from around the country who met in October with congressional leaders and regulators (FHA, FEMA, and the Federal Housing Finance Agency) in Washington, D.C., to address issues that are critical to community associations.
Part of a first-ever federal Legislative Summit organized by CAI and led by Perl, who chairs CAI’s federal Legislation Action Committee, this advocacy effort focused on reversing the current ineligibility of community associations to obtain FEMA relief in the wake of disasters like Hurricane Sandy, as well as on housing reform and other issues.
