MyCommunitySite.com Helps Compliance with Recent Law Regarding Mandatory Websites
November 28, 2018 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL — Becker, a multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists, and other professionals in offices throughout the East Coast, today announced the launch of MyCommunitySite.com, a website development service that allows Florida-based community associations to design and manage their own custom, statutorily compliant website.
The service is a joint initiative between Becker and digital developer Shyft.
MyCommunitySite.com was created in response to Florida House Bill 841, which mandates that every association operating a condominium with over 150 units have a website in place by January 1, 2019. The statute also requires the mandatory posting of operational documents including minutes from board meetings as well as certain financial statements.
Benefits of the website development service for condominium associations include no upfront development cost, same-day website turn around, a low monthly subscription fee, comprehensive support packages, automatic updates, cutting-edge technology and design, and freedom from third parties and hidden costs.
Chair of Becker’s Community Association practice group Kenneth S. Direktor said, “Becker prides itself on bringing innovative ideas and solutions to community associations and MyCommunitySite.com is our latest example. We have been advocates for community associations since Becker opened 45 years ago and have been breaking new ground ever since.”
The firm previously introduced BPBallot.com, a proprietary e-voting software application for community associations. Becker was the first firm in Florida to offer the tool following a 2015 change in law allowing association members to cast votes electronically. BPBallot.com has since made paper proxies and ballots a thing of the past, and in doing so has helped to solve a long-standing challenge faced by managed communities.
Becker has grown out of its pioneering role creating the law pertaining to the operation of common ownership housing and many of the leading cases in the field bear the firm’s name. Attorneys are recognized as individual leaders in the field through published works, public service, legislative activities, and industry group leadership positions. Additionally, several attorneys are members of the prestigious College of Community Association Lawyers. In Florida, Becker has the largest, dedicated team of Board Certified attorneys in Condominium and Planned Development Law among any firm in the state.
Becker, with headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is a multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists and other professionals at offices throughout the East Coast. More information is available at beckerlawyers.com.
