Our Community Managers will be crossed trainned in CommunityCERT

Hopefully the first notion of taking highly trained US service personal and taking them into the commuities where many of them live and having them be able to continue to serve in the role of community manager seems like a good one.
We are very excited to say that we are going to be cross training them in something that we call CommunityCERT.  

This is the original* FEMA (((((unabridged))))) Community Emergency Response Team classes with special emphasis and training with regards to  Common Interest Communities.

So if you have even seem the Gap analysis on the domestic breakdown or black-holes in EOP's Emergency Operation Plans just about every one of them point to large area of residences that are pretty much excluded from county or city plans by some stupid notion that they are private entities.  THIS IS WHERE 100 MILLON US citizen now live it's not and should never have been excluded.

We are not going to wait for the GOV to save our CIC's and we don't have too.   We are going to make sure that every Veteran that  receives the training to be a residential community manager is a hastatus for that community and the professional responders. And there is a very simple and effect way to do that  CERT.

Welcome to the Community Manager Project.

Many years ago we knew that there was a developing shortage of trained Community Association Manager.  There is not one College, Technical our University program concentrating on Residential Community Management.

Way back in 2005 The CEO of Community Paper Works, Inc Nelson Jacobsen embarked on  what he thought was a slam dunk idea.  Let's take the Vets, that are comin home from service to thier country and engage them in the notion of becoming Community Managers. 

We still need to do this and we will not stop until a two year program is established at a US Community College and our service member can continue to serve as now in a a career as residential property manager, who will be the most trained property manager on the planet.

If they can handle a market place in Baghdad then can help your condo or hoa community and if you want to help them then help us because from where we are looking at this we need property managers and we want to see Veteran's with life long careers.

btw most of the VA loans are for homes in Common Interest Communities.
