Homeowner and Condominium Association Board Member Certification Seminar in Palm Coast
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
A perfect learning opportunity for the Homeowner and Condominium Association Board Members comes to Palm Coast on Wednesday, April 29th.
Ansbacher Education, the leading educational service for board members in Northeast Florida, offers the Homeowners and Condominium Association Board Certification Seminar presented by Attorney Christene Ertl of Ansbacher Law.
Ms. Ertl has over 13 years of relevant experience with a focus on condominium and association law.
Condominium and Homeowner Associations are governed by a Board of Directors initially appointed by the developer and subsequently elected by the membership. Board members are unpaid volunteers who serve their community.
Directors have the responsibility to enforce their governing documents in accordance with Florida laws, adopt budgets, maintain common areas and oversee all aspects of their community. Even with the professional assistance of a licensed community association manager and association attorney, it is important that directors be familiar with applicable laws, accounting rules and the articles, bylaws and governing documents for their community.
Florida laws require that new directors complete an approved education course, per 718.112(2)(d)4b Fla. Stat. for Condos and 720.3033(1)(a) Fla. Stat. for HOAs.
Both laws allow the alternative of filing a certificate that a new director has read the association’s governing documents and policies, but this is not recommended. Florida’s association laws are complex and constantly changing. Understanding the fiduciary duties imposed on a director and the unique requirements for condominium and homeowner association boards regarding open meetings and membership access to records is critical for new directors.
Ansbacher Education is proud to offer this professional development opportunity for condominium and homeowners association board members and community leaders.
Through this seminar, participants will understand their unique roles and responsibilities, learn best practices, and receive licensing and continuing education credits as mandated by the State of Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
On Wedneday, April 29th
6pm to 8pm | refreshments will be served
There is no cost to attend this event.
