Meeting needs. Finding solutions. Demonstrating heart. That’s what CCMC is all about! So it comes as no surprise that one CCMC community managers was recently recognized by the Arizona Association of Community Managers (AACM) at the Guiding Excellence in Management (GEM) Awards ceremony. Designed to highlight the individual efforts of CAAM®-certified managers, GEM Award winners and nominees represent the high standards of both their company and the communities they serve. “CCMC is delighted to have one of our managers recognized in this way,” explains division president Delores Ferguson, “She represent our firm’s commitment to excellence and our collective purpose of creating experiences that connect people.”
This year, CCMC took home the AACM “Humanitarian of the Year” GEM. This GEM was awarded to Marsha Hove, who joined the CCMC team in 2009. She currently serves as the community manager for Aviano in Phoenix. Under her leadership, the Aviano community has hosted an annual fundraising event called The Baehr Challenge for the past three years. Designed to build awareness of the importance of physical fitness as a treatment for those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, this event includes a silent auction, entertainment and 5K obstacle course. Monies raised are donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Marsha has successfully rallied residents, team members and community partners to volunteer their time, participate in the event, and support this important cause. In 2013, approximately $11,000 was raised by 375 participants. This year, participation jumped to 500 and donations increased to $15,000.
Congratulations to our CCMC GEM!
