CAM Licensing Introduction

House Bill 13-1277 requires licensing for anyone who engages in certain defined activities of a “Community Association Manager” relating to the management of a common interest community (CIC). This bill was effective on January 1, 2015 and individuals needing to be licensed must do so by July 1, 2015. The Division of Real Estate continues to develop the regulatory framework for community association manager licensure and will provide notification of the development of the program through Division email blasts, quarterly newsletters, and on the Division’s website.
