Pleasanton-based Association Management Company has been named an accredited community management business by the California Association of Community Managers.
The managers' group's recognition is the highest level of achievement for community association management businesses and places the Pleasanton organization among the most elite companies in the U.S.
Established in 1987 and now headed by Tani Cligny, Association Management, with offices at 6601 Koll Center Pkwy., works with homeowner associations (HOAs) to effectively and efficiently manage their operations, including financial and compliance issues.
In addition to her management responsibilities, Cligny manages a team of accounting personnel to ensure timely and accurate financial reporting for associations as well as coordinating the preparation of financial reviews and tax returns.
"Association Management Company strives to provide professional consultative leadership to homeowner associations with high expectations of financial accountability, regulatory and compliance oversight and community management," Cligny said. "We are committed to working with (HOA) boards and members to build strong, sustainable and enduring communities."
Companies with the California Association of Community Managers approval designation are able to provide a higher standard of service to homeowners associations as a result of their demonstrated expertise in such critical areas as risk management, California law and insurance requirements, said David Zepponi, president and CEO of the state organization.
That includes submitting to an independent CPA internal control review to demonstrate they adhere to accounting standards for risk management practices and internal financial controls. In addition, each community manager must hold a state certification, which encompasses California law and ethical standards of practice for community association management in California.
