Hurricane Ian Webinar Series: Sanibel/Captiva

Hurricane Ian Webinar Series: Sanibel/Captiva

For those of you recovering from Ian, our hearts are with you, and our team is here to help your community in any way we can. That is why we are bringing you as much information as possible to help guide you through the process in the aftermath of Ian. Different locales face different issues, and we wanted you to be able to select the webinar that best fits your association’s needs.

For that reason, we have separated the content into three different programs, one focused on Sanibel/Captiva, one focused on Fort Myers Beach, and one focused on Lee County as a whole.

While there will be some content duplication in the three programs, there will also be some unique content in each. For example, the Fort Myers Beach program will include a presentation by Lee County Property Appraiser Matt Caldwell, who will be speaking about the recently passed property tax disaster relief law.
