Social Media Committee: The purpose of the Social Media Committee is to communicate the goals and initiatives of the chapter, connect members with each other and with resources, advertise and increase participation in chapter events, and advance the interaction of members with the chapter through website and social media interfaces while accomplishing the overall goal of increased chapter membership.
Communications Committee: Responsible for the planning and development of content for the Chapter’s monthly magazine, The CommunicatorTM. The committee identifies topics and appropriate content and identifies and recruits appropriate authors and contributors.
Designation & Mentoring Committee: The Designation Mentoring Committee is committed to supporting community managers looking to continue their path of professional development by earning one of several designations offered through CAI. Whether you are new to the industry and want to know how to get started or if you are a seasoned veteran seeking a PCAM credential, the Designation Mentoring Committee is here to help. Committee Members assist Mangers in structuring a development plan specific to the individual. The committee is currently offering three exciting programs designed to help you achieve an advanced designation through CAI.
1) MENTORING PROGRAM
Do you need some tips on what classes to take? Do you want some guidance as you navigate the application process? The Designations Committee will match you with a mentor that has achieved the industry’s highest professional credential, the PCAM.
Your mentor will provide one-on-one support and guidance throughout credentialing and designation process. This includes creating a personalized strategic plan for each candidate to obtain the AMS designations and preparing candidates for the PCAM case study.
2) SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
We are offering scholarships of $250 to Community Managers that are chapter members in good standing to partially reimburse you for registration fees for any one of CAI’s six M200 level Professional Management Development Program (PMDP) Courses. Scholarships are awarded once the course is completed and evidence is provided showing proof of attendance and passing grade. Other restrictions apply. Subject to application approval by the Chapter Board of Directors and availability of funding.
3) THE CMCA Challenge (Study Session & CMCA Exam)
Hold a CCAM? Taken the M100? Have five years industry experience? If so, you qualify to take the CMCA Challenge!
The BayCen Chapter is offering those Community Managers who currently hold an active CCAM® designation the opportunity to “challenge” the CMCA exam without having to sit though the two-and-a-half-day M-100 course.
Our chapter offers a FREE study session with a qualified California instructor to prepare you for the CMCA examination. There is a $350 cost to take the CMCA Exam immediately following the study session. But, if you pass the exam, the Chapter will award you a $250 scholarship! To be eligible you must be a Community Manager and chapter member in good standing.
For more information on all of these programs or to apply please contact the Chapter Executive Director Kelvin Nanney at KelvinN@meetingpossibilities.com or (925) 355-1980.
