CAI: What are your goals to continue your education now that you have achieved the top-tier elite designation for your profession? MS: A Reserve Study and healthy reserve fund are the foundations of a good community. I am currently working towards achieving the Reserve Specialist (RS) designation. Very few obtain both the PCAM and the RS designations with CAI. KH: The Manager Support Committee is working to develop a “Case Study 101” course to give support leading up to the study for potential PCAMS. It is my goal to one day be involved in training and education with CAI on a national level. CAI: Finally, would you recommend that other managers pursue the PCAM designation?
