With the greatest pride and pleasure, we wish to inform you that Emaar Community Management (ECM) has received the most prestigious accreditation in community management from the US-based Community Associations Institute (CAI). We are now an Accredited Association Management Company® (AAMC®), part of a truly elite group, and the first and only company to earn this certification outside of the USA. This is another huge success for ECM, already one of the first licensed association management companies in the UAE, and currently the largest provider of professional association and community management services in the region, managing over 50 owners associations, consisting of over 150 tower developments and 12,000 villas.

Ahmad Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties PJSC, said: “As the pioneer in developing integrated master-planned communities, Emaar has been at the forefront in delivering world best practices in community management. The prestigious AAMC accreditation cements our industry standing, and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to our investors, homeowners and residents. “Our customers can be assured of the highest level of services and qualifications on par with the best in the world. Emaar customers can be confident of not only the quality of their property but also the continued community services that help enhance their value and sustain a world-class lifestyle.”

An international organisation dedicated to building better communities, the CAI provides information, education and resources to all community association stakeholders, including community managers and homeowner leaders. Thomas M Skiba, CEO of CAI, said: “The AAMC accreditation demonstrates a company’s commitment to providing superior service to their community association customers. An Accredited Association Management Company makes a commitment to ensure their staff has the skills, experience and integrity to help communities succeed. Its managers have advanced training and dedication to the industry. We are pleased to have ECM as the first internationally accredited community management company and believe their achievement reflects Dubai's commitment to strong management and governance in communities.” ECM was formally inducted as an AAMC® in front of over 1,000 professionals in San Diego during the recent annual CAI conference.
