Q: I am a condominium unit owner and I would like to become a board member. Besides timely submitting my letter of intent and information sheet are there any other requirements, specifically educational requirements?
A: At this time, potential board members have two options in this regard.Option 1: Newly elected board members can chose to forgo a formal educational course and simply certify in writing to the association secretary that he/she has read the association's governing documents, will work to uphold such documents and policies, and will faithfully discharge his fiduciary responsibility to the association's members;orOption 2: Candidates can take a Division-approved educational course up to one (1) year prior to or within 90 days after the date of such member's election. (The Division was described in the blog the week ending October 14th). The courses vary in length, cost and location.Check the Division's website for the list of approved educational course providers. http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/lsc/condominiums/BoardMemberEducation9.htmlPeytonBolin is an approved educational course provider!
