 Council of Fellows Applications 2016- Reminder

The Consulting Fellow (CF) is the highest recognition bestowed on its members by the NPMA. Consulting Fellows are expected to have made significant and continuous contributions to the field of property management. This recognition is designed to provide the NPMA with a core group of property/asset management technical experts who will mentor the next generation of professionals, educate NPMA members, perpetuate the literature of property/asset management, and provide leadership in the property management field. This core group is known as the "Council of Fellows."

Consulting Fellow candidates must submit a completed CF Application with supporting documentation (see website for templates) along with the $75.00 processing fee to the NPMA National Office, certification@npma.org. You will receive an auto-generated invoice for the $75 application fee.

CF recipients are recognized annually at the National Education Seminar or at the Spring/Fall Conferences. In order to be recognized at the 2016 NES, CF applications and supporting documents must be submitted by July 29th, 2016. In order to provide sufficient time for committee review, we would appreciate your submittal as soon as possible.

Additional information is contained on the NPMA website under "Groups."

The supporting documentation will help guide you through the process. Please utilize the templates as this helps the committee to identify what documentation supports which requirement.
