Benefits You Receive From Volunteering with PMA 

PMA committee service is a steppingstone to becoming an industry leader, because serving on a PMA committee offers skills, training and experiences needed to grow personally and professionally.

Of the 23 most immediate PMA past presidents that remain active in property management, 19 hold the positions of president, executive vice president or vice president of a property management company. Almost all began their PMA committee involvement as line property managers. As a committee member you will enjoy meaningful involvement in the premier association serving the national capital area property management industry and you will develop:

  • Leadership skills that enable you to advance your career and demonstrate to owners, corporate executives and others that you possess the qualifications and experience to accept increased levels of responsibility.
  • Delegation skills that enhance staff productivity and improve performance.
  • Strategic planning capabilities.
  • Public speaking and presentation skills.
  • Budgeting skills that save time and money.
  • Performance monitoring skills that enable you to better direct staff and oversee day-to-day activities and functions.
