Community Association Management Services (CAMS), an industry leader in community association management throughout the Carolinas, held their inaugural CAMMY Awards via Zoom on February 3rd, 2022. Though the event was initially scheduled to be held in person, plans were changed due to rising Covid infection numbers. Despite the unexpected changes, the event went off without a hitch and was a wonderful time for all involved.
The CAMMYs were geared towards recognizing the successes that CAMS, its dedicated team members, and different regions achieved throughout 2021. Founder/Co-Owner Mike Stonestreet, Co-Owner Dave Sweyer, CEO Dave Orr, COO Cathy Wade, and several other department heads announced award winners during the event.
The primary award, The CAMMY, was presented to Kami Carden, a leader of the Community Support Team, which serves all CAMS regions. In her time with the company, Kami has exhibited strong leadership skills, a positive attitude, and a willingness to help wherever needed and do whatever it takes to get the job done. CEO Dave Orr personally delivered her award to her home.
Just as with the beginning of the pandemic, CAMS quickly adjusted plans to fit a virtual platform. These adjustments included creating virtual backgrounds to give the event a cohesive feeling, ensuring everyone’s technology was working correctly, and confirming all presenters knew when it was their turn to speak since everyone was in a different location. In addition, since the onset of the pandemic, all CAMS employees have gained experience working remotely and have become experts at participating in virtual events, making the venue change go that much more smoothly.
In addition to The CAMMY award, several other awards were given out to both individuals and regions CAMS serves. The Charleston and Columbia, SC regions were recognized for outstanding customer service and overall growth. Individual awards were given to Heather Doolittle in the Wilmington, NC, region and Danielle Smith in the Charleston, SC region. Doolittle and Smith were recognized for completing the most training courses and earning the most industry credentials in a short amount of time, respectively.
CAMS is honored to have such a dedicated team of experts and expects to see continued progress and growth throughout 2022. In addition, the CAMMY Awards will be held annually, with the next event planned for early 2023.
