Sears was awarded the Rising Star for her service this past year on CAI Central Arizona Chapter's Education Committee. This committee generates classes that showcase topics of specific relevance geared towards the betterment and ongoing training of Community Managers and Board members. CAI's Education Committee has hosted a myriad of classes including the Best Practices Series held this year, in which Sears was instrumental in creating and implementing.

"Vicki's unwavering dedication to the Education Committee and overall involvement in our Chapter made her the perfect recipient of the Rising Star Award."

"What I love most about the community association management industry is that no two days are ever the same," stated Sears. "Every single day provides me with an opportunity to learn something new, which is why I am so honored to earn this award and serve on the Education Committee. Ongoing education is such an important element to this industry and I am thankful to be able to help not only Boards and Community Managers but homeowners as well."
