COVID-19 Crazy!! What Associations Need to Know!
This is a “don’t miss” session! All aspects of community association governance have been impacted by the COVID-19 virus. Board members are now obligated to assure clean, sanitized common areas and to restrict access assuring social distancing. Additional issues include vendors working from home, the economic impact of delinquencies and fraud, pandemic insurance, frightened and sometimes irrational residents and even the need for emotional support animals to maintain sanity. This session will reveal factors that boards should carefully consider.
Are You Up to Date?
Issues that board members confront change daily. This session provides vital information for board members to understand new technologies…board use of email, electronic voting, digital record keeping, electronic service tickets, electronic security, using Zoom, mandated web sites, and flying drones. Emerging legal issues, limitations of warranties and contractual issues will be addressed. Depart from this session feeling up to date and ready to tackle the challenges that await you as a board member.
Board Member Certification – Here and Now!
Florida Statutes provide that newly elected board members in condominium associations, and more recently in homeowners’ associations, have two options to be certified for board service. One option is that the newly elected or appointed director may submit a certificate of satisfactory completion of the education curriculum administered by a division-approved condominium or HOA education provider. A director who fails to complete one of the two options within 90 days of being elected is suspended from service on the board until she or he complies with this requirement. This requirement may also be completed up to one year before being elected to a board seat. This session fulfills the certification requirements for both condominium and homeowners’ associations. Certificates of completion will be provided.
