Elizabeth Medora

ANTHEM – The Anthem Parkside Community Association is now recruiting for the full-time position of Community Manager. Anyone interested in applying can see job requirements on the Career Builder Web site at Résumés and cover letters can be sent to Angelique Artiaga-Lopez, HR Generalist, via email at, fax (602) 870-8220, or mail to: AAM, LLC, 1600 W. Broadway Road, Phoenix, AZ 85282.

The Parkside Community Manager will report directly to the Parkside Board of Directors. The position is on-site in Anthem. The Community Manager hired will be responsible for providing community management and effective customer service to the Parkside Community Association and its residents through in-depth knowledge of Covenants, Compliance & Regulations (CC&Rs) and management contracts.

The hiring of a new Parkside Community Manager stems from the departure of former community manager Annette McCarthy, which took place last March. Mary Beth Zahn has been functioning as interim community manager since. The Parkside Community Association Board of Directors released a statement in June, noting that Zahn was in a six-month trial period and that the Board would make a determination at the end of that trial period as to whether to open the position up to other candidates or officially hire Zahn.

In a statement released on July 22, the Parkside Board of Directors announced the open recruitment of the position. Zahn will be among candidates for the position.

“At the end of the six-month review period, the Parkside Board of Directors support the job that interim community manager Mary Beth Zahn is doing and are pleased that she will be one of the candidates in the selection process,” said Vice President Bettye Ruff in the July 22 statement. “By doing an open recruitment for the position, we would like to provide assurance to the Parkside community that we are seeking out the very best available community manager for Parkside.”

The online job posting notes that candidates need to have strong customer service skills, budgeting and financial administration knowledge, and preferably have experience in the HOA industry. The community manager’s job responsibilities include being the main point of contact for the community association, evaluating projects, planning events, preparing financial reports, and acting as a liaison among the Board of Directors, committees, and homeowners, as well as other duties. In the job posting, it is noted that salary for the position will depend on experience.

The Parkside Board of Directors will interview the top three candidates for the community manager position. As of this time, the job posting does not have a closing date. Everyone is welcome to apply for the position.
