Board Member Certification Course on Tuesday, June 16th

The state of Florida requires that community association board members become certified by attending an approved course or submitting written certification information to the association secretary. One of the best and most convenient ways for board members to become certified is by participating in our live complimentary board member certification webinars from the comfort of their home or office, or by attending one of our complimentary seminars. Our course has been approved by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation to qualify for board member certification. This interactive course details the basic concepts of community association operations, including an overview of the budget and reserve process, membership and board meetings, election procedures, alternative dispute resolutions, vendor bids and contract negotiations, and it highlights some of the most recent changes in Florida condominium laws. Attendees receive an official certificate of completion from our firm, and the course also qualifies for 2 hours of continuing education CAM credits for property managers.

Our next board member certification course presented by Michael Chapnick will take place on Tuesday, June 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This course is being offered in both webinar and live seminar formats. Contact Stephanie Bonilla at (305) 442-8536 or send her an e-mail at sbonilla@srhl-law.com to register for the webinar and receive the login info, or to reserve your seat at the live presentation. Space is limited to 20 participants for the webinar and 10 participants for the live presentation of the seminar, which will be held at our West Palm Beach office. Registration will be granted on a first come, first serve basis.

Disaster Recovery 101: How to Prepare for a Storm and Survive a Loss

For any Florida resident, knowing how to prepare for a natural disaster and being well-informed of what steps to take post-disaster are invaluable pieces of information. Although Florida has escaped being hit by a hurricane for nearly nine years now, the South Florida population has skyrocketed within the past couple of years, putting more people at risk. Many of these newcomers have never experienced a hurricane or tropical storm, an alarming fact that has caught the attention of many experts who are pushing to raise hurricane awareness. For this seminar, experts from different realms of the community association industry will discuss various topics that will help condo managers, board members and residents prepare their properties and themselves to survive a storm when it strikes—because it’s not a matter of if, but when. Space is limited to 70 participants. For more information or to learn how to register, please contact Stephanie Bonilla at (305) 442-8536 or send her an email at sbonilla@srhl-law.com.
