Take It to the Board: The Job of the Journal with Michael Hamline, Editor, Florida Community Association Journal

If you’re one of Florida’s 18K+ community association managers or a board member to one of the state’s 60K+ shared ownership communities, you know the FLCAJ. Or do you?

Donna and Michael put the publication under a microscope, discussing what it really takes to create and release over 100 pages of educational content that outlines how a process works, offers money-saving strategies, removes managerial headaches, and, ultimately, helps leadership protect its community’s quality of life.

Additional highlights include: Michael’s wish list for future content, why some suggested articles are rejected, how the FLCAJ promotes CAM certification, and whether the digital version will eventually replace the print edition.

BONUS: Hear Michael’s surprising response when questioned about his own HOA board meeting participation. (Physician, heal thyself!)

Think you know what community association life is all about? Think again. Residents must obey the rules, directors must follow the law, and managers must keep it all running smoothly. Take It to the Board explores the reality of life in a condominium, cooperative or homeowners’ association, what’s really involved in serving on its board, and how to maintain that ever-so-delicate balance of being legally compliant and community spirited. Leading community association attorney Donna DiMaggio Berger acknowledges the balancing act without losing her sense of humor as she talks with a variety of association leaders, experts, and vendors about the challenges and benefits of the community association lifestyle.
