The Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO) recently marked its 40th anniversary during a celebration event with over 400 in attendance.
Those who were at the event included ACMO founders, past presidents and some of the organization’s very first members.
ACMO’s President Robert Weinberg hosted the event, which highlighted the organization’s 30-, 35- and 40-year members along with those who recently earned Registered Condominium Manager (RMC) designation from AMCO.
“My vision was that together we could create our own unique industry standards,” John Dzenekoj, ACMO’s first person to receive RCM designation, said. “This would provide clients with consistency in service and significantly better value. In return, managers and management companies would gain respect, support and industry jobs."
During the celebration event, ACMO presented several long-time member awards, and two members, Richard Pearlstein and Ray Wilson, were honoured with Life Member Awards. Pearlstein and Wilson were spotlighted for their commitment to bringing credibility to their profession.
AMCO, founded in 1977, has a membership of 2,000 property managers and associated professionals who represent the condominium industry. The organization’s mission is to enhance Ontario’s condominium management profession. The ACMO has two designations which it awards to members, the RCM and the ACMO 2000 certification program.
