Two employees of Community Management Concepts of Jacksonville, an Associa company, take on leadership roles in the Jacksonville Metropolitan Chapter of Community Associations Institute.
The Jacksonville Metropolitan CAI chapter elected Amy Layne as president for 2013, and Stephanie Peluyera earned the role of chapter executive director.
“We are proud of Stephanie and Amy for their hard work,” said CMC Jacksonville President and CEO Nick Lambiase, Jr. “It’s great to see their dedication to CAI recognized.”
Layne entered the community association industry in 1998. She joined CMC Jacksonville in 2007 and returned in 2012. Layne is a Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA). In addition to her upcoming role as president, she also serves on the Trade Show Committee, Finance and Nominating Committee for CAI, and serves on the Governance Committee for the Foundation for Community Association Research. Previously, Layne served as a member of the Organizational Committee for the Jacksonville Metropolitan CAI chapter, as well as executive director and board liaison to the Membership Committee.
“I am thrilled to take on this important role in our Chapter and CAI and look forward to working with all of our volunteers and members to continue to grow the Chapter. I feel it very important to offer the education that CAI provides to our manager and community association volunteer members as well as participating in monitoring and protecting the rights of community associations within the State of Florida as it pertain to legislative changes,” added Amy Layne.
Peluyera joins CAI as chapter executive director. She is a graduate of Trinity Baptist College and joined CMC Jacksonville as a receptionist in 2011, where she quickly worked her way up to assistant community manager. As executive director, she is the liaison between the national office of CAI and the chapter and is responsible for delivering communications, organizing chapter meetings and planning educational events.
“I am excited about the opportunity to join my passion for teaching and event planning into one role. Our membership committee has set a goal to have 200+ members by January 1, 2014. I hope to assist the chapter in this goal as well as many others. I want to help the chapter grow and expand to a highly recognized organization,” Stephanie Peluyera commented.
