The Contest was founded in 2012 by Association Reserves, Inc., a company that prepares Reserve Studies for Community Associations, to recognize and reward the achievement of professional Managers in orchestrating major improvements and/or turnarounds at condos, coops, HOAs and PUDs across the country. Each year since its inception, the National “Manager of the Year” Contest has grown, with hundreds of Manager applicants, five Sponsors, three Media Partners, and one Voting Partner.
