Jason E Fisher has worked with hundreds of business and community associations in a broad spectrum of areas. His role has often been described as a “for hire” Chief Operating Officer and legal consultant. He has worked with businesses and community associations on matters related to general operations, governance, best practices, executive and board training, strategic planning, and employee retention. He has also served as an advisor and liaison to legal counsel, engineers, and developers.
Jason received his Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Maryland School of Business and his Juris Doctor from Widener University School of Law, where he was awarded the Outstanding Service Award from his graduating class and also had the honor of serving as Editor-in-Chief of Widener’s Law Review. After graduating law school, Jason served as law clerk to the Honorable Paul H. Weinstein, who was the Chief Administrative Judge for the 6th Judicial Circuit of Maryland.
Jason has been a prominent member of the Community Association Institute, specifically its Washington Metropolitan Chapter, where he served as president in 2010 and on the board of directors and executive committee from 2005 to 2011. He also served for more than five years on CAI National’s Maryland Legislative Action Committee, where he provided years of active service as first a member and then as the Chair of CAI’s Washington Chapter’s Legislative Committee. In his role there, he was instrumental in bringing about much needed positive changes related to laws impacting community associations and the businesses that served the industry. Throughout his career, Jason has been called upon to assist in developing strategic plans and to find solutions to effect positive changes in the organizations he works for. In doing so, he has mentored executives and those serving in supervisory-level positions to manage employees and motivate their teams more effectively. He is especially regarded for his ability to provide advice, guidance, and strategy to companies on the operations and issues in their communities.
Outside of his professional life, Jason is a strong proponent of mentoring and believes that talent and skill are qualities that can be developed throughout time. As such, he dedicates much of his time into volunteering as a tutor and supporting adults who want to obtain their Graduation Equivalency Diplomas (GED). He also assists those seeking to carve out a better future for themselves through education and guides them through the college application process. When he is not working or volunteering, Jason enjoys spending time with his family.
