Teresa Bosteter, association division manager at Windermere Property Management, has earned accreditation as a Professional Community Association Manager from the Community Association Institute.
Only 2,200 managers worldwide have achieved the honor, considered the industry’s highest credential, which requires a minimum of five years in the field of community association management and completion of more than 100 hours of coursework. Credentialed PCAMs must also fulfill continuing education and service requirements and adhere to the code of ethics of the CAI.
Bosteter is the only PCAM certified manager north of Everett.
She had previously completed the Certified Manager of Community Associations designation, offered by the National Board of Certification for Community Managers. She obtained her real-estate license in 1996 and has been managing community associations in Bellingham since 2003.
As a professional association manager, Bosteter provides administrative, operational and managerial counsel to the boards that govern homeowner and condominium associations. Managers also manage budgets and contractors, direct association personnel and oversee compliance with association covenants and restrictions.
