The Continental Group, in conjunction with WFLA 540 AM Radio, will host the “2011 Florida Legislative Updates for Condo Associations” on Tuesday, July 12th from 6:00 pm. – 8:30 pm. at the Crowne Plaza Universal located at 7800 Universal Boulevard, Orlando, FL 32819.
Travis Moore, Lobbyist of Florida Capitol Advocates and Legislative Representative for Community Associations Institute (CAI), and attorney Paul L. Wean, Managing Shareholder of Wean & Malchow, P.A., will discuss the latest major policy changes, condo and homeowner association regulations, and the potential implications of House Bill 1195. Residents, property managers and volunteer condo Board of Director members are invited to attend and learn about future policies that will significantly impact their community and investments.
“This year’s state legislative session was a frantic whirlwind of legislation which reached a broad spectrum of policy areas. This was a particularly challenging Session due to a multitude of freshmen legislators, new leadership teams running both the House and Senate and a new Gubernatorial Administration and Executive branch,” said Moore. “I look forward to addressing those important community association issues which did pass, as well as discussing some of the major proposals which were brought forward and failed to gain enactment during the 2011 Florida Legislative Updates for Condo Associations event.”
Moore will bring a unique and valuable “behind-the-scenes” knowledge of the governmental process. He has worked in both chambers of the Florida Legislature as Senior Legislative Assistant to the former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, twenty-year member, Senator John Grant of Tampa and in the Florida House of Representative as the Chief Aide to Representative Earl Ziebarth. In these positions, Moore worked extensively with various committee staffs, state agencies and other members of the Legislature to develop and implement numerous pieces of legislation, public policy and budgetary initiatives.
Wean has represented community associations and is a frequent contributor to several publications of interest to community association members and has lectured on the national, state and local levels.
He has also authored a law review article for Nova University Law Review on developments in community association law and he is a member of the Community Association Institute (CAI) and the Space Coast Condominiums Association in Brevard County. Wean has also served as both Secretary and President of his own homeowners association.
“House Bill 1195 recently became effective on July 1, 2011, and there are many important changes Condominium, Cooperative, and Homeowner Associations should be informed of,” said Wean. “The bill revises and provides various provisions relating to specified condominium, cooperative, and homeowner associations, including fees, elections, records, powers, duties, meetings, officers, notices, foreclosure, governance, liens, and bulk assignees and bulk buyers.”
TCG is the leading community association management company in Florida that works year-round with CAI to ensure the rights of all residents who live within communities governed by HOA or community associations.
Registration and hors d‘oeuvres will be from 6:00 pm. – 6:30 pm., and the seminar will be held from 6:30 pm. – 8:30 pm. The event is free but attendees must pre-register with Beth Monaco at bmonaco[.]tcgmgt.com or call 407-644-0010. Parking is free.
