Colorado Association Manager Licensing Set to Expire June 30
Governor Polis recently vetoed legislation which would have extended the licensing program for Colorado Association Managers. Pending an override veto from the Colorado General Assembly, Colorado’s licensing requirement will end on June 30, 2019. Therefore, starting July 1, 2019, Community Association Managers will no longer be required to be licensed.
When vetoing the extension of the program, Governor Polis requested recommendations for licensing, transparency, homeowner rights and consumer protections be provided to him by January 1, 2020. Therefore, it is likely that there may be some regulations again in the future.
The vetoing of the extension for the licensing program has several effects. Not only will there be no licensing renewals or new applications accepted, the Division of Real Estate will also cease the following activities: continuing education courses, testing, investigations, and auditing insurance coverage. Furthermore, all present Colorado Association Manager Rules, Regulations and Positions Statements issued by the Division of Real Estate will be repealed.
