On May 24, from 10am-1pm at UCF Arena, Marlene Kirtland will be giving a free class for Community Association Board Member Certification. Attorney Kirtland will review legal and fiduciary responsibilities, case studies and real-life examples, statutory deadlines, checklists, dispute resolution, elections and much more.

Attendance is free for Florida community association managers and community association volunteers, courtesy of Becker & Poliakoff. Excite you tastebuds afterward with foods from nine restaurants and caterers. The class is taking place during PM-EXPO, a tradeshow for all types of property managers, landlords and community association volunteers – the “unofficial “theme is Excite Your Tastebuds.

After earning your Board certification, walk the tradeshow floor and meet professional quality vendors while exciting your tastebuds.

Florida law now requires that Board Members to:

  • Sign a statement that they have read Florida Statute 718 and all their community’s governing documents OR
  • Attend a Board Member Certification Seminar

To ensure proper credit toward DBPR requirement, reserve your space by calling Gaylene Coover 407-875-0955 or email Though not a requirement for Florida community association managers, it’s a great educational opportunity – and popular with the Florida licensed CAM community.


  1. I am retired in Port Saint Lucie West. (Bedford at the Lakes HOA). I would like to attend a Board Member Certification Seminar. Please send information. Thank you, Georg Farrell

    • George, if October in Miami Beach works for you, we will be running a PM-EXPO in October in Miami Beach. We’ll have a free Board Certification Class, other seminars that you may find interesting plus a trade show floor where you can network with professional vendors focused on community association needs. If Miami Beach is too far or October doesn’t fit your timeframe, I’ll email you about other Board Certification classes.

  2. I’m interested in attending your free Board Certification classes in October please provide me with the details. Thank You

    • Richard, we look forward to seeing you at PM-EXPO.

      Free Board Certification classes are being offered at the upcoming PM-EXPO’s in Jacksonville and in Miami Beach. Please see PM-EXPO – on the upper left-hand corner of the webpage, you can click on either South Florida or Jacksonville and then click on Schedule to see the classes offered.

      Richard Larsen of Larsen & Associates is teaching the class in Jacksonville on October 21. Eric Glazer of Glazer & Associates is teaching the class in Miami Beach – both are engaging sepakers.

    • We’d be happy to discuss having you at PM-EXPO-South Florida if you choose to take a booth. Although attendance is free for property managers and owners, we have a strict policy against suitcasing – vendors that pay for booths get understandly upset when non-paying vendors get into an event.

      I’ll make sure to have a rep call your office.

  3. Are there any broward meetings scheduled soon?

    • We have nothing soon scheduled in Broward. However, attorney Eric Glazer, host of Condo Craze & HOA radio show, is giving his Board Certification class in 10 days, Tuesday, March 27, at PM-EXPO SW Florida. And there are other important classes relevant to Board members like you – assessment collections, the trauma of an insurance claim, etc.

      Eric was the first attorney in Florida to be approved to give a Board Certification class and the venue is beautiful. It’s at Charlotte Harbor Conference Center – right on the water. It’s a couple hour drive from Broward but you may want to make it into an overnight stay – beautiful area with fun places to visit.
