Condo Board Members Must Be Certified!
Under the revised provision of Fla. Stat. 718, known as the Condominium Act, board members of condominiums must submit a certified written statement that they have read the governing documents of the association and the Florida Statutes and understand them to the best of their ability, or have a certificate from a class providing training that has been approved by the Department of Business & Professional Regulations. This certified writing or certificate must be on file within 90 days of the board member taking office or the board member will be suspended from the board automatically. The certificate must be kept by the association for five years and the board member must provide a new certificate after five years if they are still on the board.
