The Association and Technology: What a Board Member Must Know
Technology now impacts every aspect of association management. Join Subject Matter Experts in an overview of electronic voting legislation and methods; advances in banking technology; tools to facilitate communication, accounting and how the latest technology has changed paint and roof coatings. This is a “must attend” session for new board members and those who need to brush up on what tech tools are available today.
Board Member Issues: Living in a Subtropical Environment
Living in a subtropical environment presents unique challenges to board members, especially those who have lived in the north. This session highlights the issues of landscaping that are unique to Florida; how to protect the assets of the association’s infrastructure from weather related damage and deterioration and how the climate impacts insurance.
Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll….The Nitty Gritty of the Issues of the Board
Board members are thought to be experts about many things unrelated to association management. What exposure does the association have when alcohol is served? What about smoking on the property? What about sex offenders? What to do about illegal drugs? Can we refuse to rent to known criminals? Can board members be reimbursed for their expenses? How do we enforce the noise rules? This session covers the nitty gritty of issues that boards face.
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 he or she 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.
