How Do I Re-Instate My Lapsed CMCA?

Sep 1, 2015

The Community Association Manager International Certification Board (CAMICB) policy permits a CMCA to reinstate the CMCA credential once during the course of a CMCA's career, subject to the reinstatement policies outlined in the "Reinstatement" portion of the CMCA Handbook, including payment of a $200 reinstatement fee and fulfillment of applicable continuing education requirements.

A CMCA seeking subsequent reinstatement(s) of a lapsed CMCA credential must complete the application for reinstatement and:

Re-take and pass the CMCA exam. Full application fees apply. 
Or: Submit to the CAMICB office proof of completion of 16 hours of continuing education for each year in which the credential was inactive; submit payment of a $105 service fee for each year in which the credential was inactive; and submit payment of a $200 reinstatement fee.

Any CMCA requesting an initial or subsequent reinstatement of the CMCA credential must attest that, during the period in which the credential was inactive, the CMCA:

Has upheld the CMCA Standards of Professional Conduct 
Has not represented himself/herself as an active CMCA

Reinstatement of the CMCA credential is subject to review by the CAMICB Board of Commissioners.
