SIG Elections at NES

Hello NPMA Members-

Allow me to take a moment of your time to talk about Special Interest Groups- SIGs and opportunity for service as a SIG leader. In short, the SIGs are a place for NPMA members to exchange knowledge, get advice and support the NPMA community. This happens through the medium of the SIG boards which are accessed through the NPMA homepage. There are presently 11 SIGs, each dedicated to a specific discipline or field within the field of Property Management. Each SIG has a Chairperson (in some cases a co-Chair as well), and a Secretary who oversee the boards, moderate, schedule meetings (if any) and moderate discussions. Some SIGs hold meetings on a regular basis, and others meet only at NES, each according to the needs of the group and discretion of the SIG leadership. Functionally very similar in practice to how the Chapters are run. This year at NES the SIGs will be selecting new leadership for the next 2-year term. All boards run on the same election cycle, so if there’s one that you would like to get more involved in, NES this year will be your opportunity to take that leap into leadership! Just find the meeting on the schedule and let the chairperson know when you get there that you are interested in leading – no other formality is required. On top of being an opportunity to demonstrate and develop leadership skills, becoming a SIG leader is also recognized by the Board of Fellows and counts as credit in the Service portion of the C. F. application. In addition to the experience and recognition from the C.F Board, the knowledge and expansion of your professional network will have a positive impact on your career and work life. If this sounds good to you, step out and get involved, the experience alone will be worth it!

Best regards,
Shawn Megaw, CPPS
National Director, SIGs

NPMA Sacramento Chapter

A group of members in Northern California are working to reestablish a NPMA Chapter in the Sacramento area. The group is currently working on identifying charter members to get the chapter off the ground. The chapter will primarily hold online meetings with the occasional face-to-face meeting in the Sacramento area. In addition, frequent collaboration is planned between the Bay Area Chapter and the California Colleges and Universities Chapter. If you are interested in helping reestablish this chapter please contact Brandon Kriner at

Free New NPMA Member Webinar – June 23

Please register for New NPMA Members Webinar on Jun 23, 2017 2:00 PM EDT at:

Join your host Loril Stephens - National Director of Membership - Member Support and learn all the benefits and opportunities that come with membership in the National Property Management Association during this one hour webinar.

Calling all CPPMs!

We are in need of proctors! Many cities/Chapters do not have a local proctor and members need to look toward their companies HR for assistance. Surprisingly not every HR is willing to help. Any CPPM in good standing that is interested in becoming a proctor for certification testing should apply online on the NPMA webpage under Certification and NPMA Proctor. After applying online, you will need to provide two references before your application can be approved. 

Serving as a proctor not only helps your fellow NPMA members, but it will fulfill a criterion for renewing your CPPM. It will also help if you are working toward a Consulting Fellow (CF) designation. 

If you have any questions, please contact
