FirstService Residential is hosting a free HOA/condominium board member training course designed to expand upon the Florida-mandated content for board member certification; newly elected or appointed board members and directors are currently required to attend a state-approved certification course that covers the most critical aspects of day-to-day association operations within 90 days of taking office.  
The event will take place on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at the University of North Florida University Center, located at 12000 Alumni Drive in Jacksonville, FL 32224. Hors d’oeuvres will be served and a vendor expo will take place at 5:30 p.m., followed by the course at 6:30 p.m. Featured panelists will include Dan Wasserstein, Esquire, of the law firm of Wasserstein, PA and Matt Kuisle from Reserve Advisors. Senator Aaron Bean will be a guest speaker.
This course is open to any area board member who wishes to attend, and serves as a follow-up to FirstService Residential’s basic certification course and its ongoing educational series.
As the leading Florida property management company, FirstService Residential shares best practices in the communities it serves to help enhance board effectiveness and efficiency. Participants will be offered guidance in the areas of legislative updates, reserving for the future, insurance, finance, cost savings and managing relationships.
