Katzman Garfinkel & Berger (KG&B), the leader in community association law in the state of Florida, today announced its participation as a Founding Member in support of Florida Community Association Professionals (FCAP), the new member-based professional organization dedicated to training, equipping and advocating for Florida community associations statewide.
As an FCAP Founding Member, Katzman Garfinkel & Berger has been a leading contributor to the curriculum for FCAP educational courses, developing legal course materials and providing counsel toward the training and certification of Florida community association managers, service providers and community volunteer leaders.
Katzman Garfinkel & Berger fully supports and encourages Florida community association managers to attend the very first FCAP educational course offering, the Florida Advanced CAM Studies course, slated for April 16-20 in Tamarac, FL, providing managers with 40-hours of educational training that leads to Certified Florida Community Association Manager (CFCAM) designation upon completion.
“Katzman Garfinkel & Berger is very pleased to participate in FCAP, which represents a tremendous opportunity for education and professional advancement for community association managers and other industry service providers in the state of Florida,” said Donna DiMaggio Berger, Founding Partner, Katzman Garfinkel & Berger. “Working closely with FCAP, our firm will provide the most complete and up-to-date legal information available to continuously enhance and improve the invaluable course materials and classroom education provided to managers and others through this unique program.”
“We are especially privileged to have a firm with the experience that KG&B offers as a Founding Member of FCAP,” said Jim McMurry, FCAP President and General Manager, Florida Community Association Journal. “Ms. Berger is one of the finest legal minds in the state and recognizes the value of training in all areas of the community association industry. Her firm's goals and our goals line up very well – we both want to see a high degree of professionalism in Florida Community Associations. The legal landscape in Florida continues to shift almost daily, and we need help to keep our members advised of changes that affect their communities. I feel KG&B can provide the help we need.”
Dedicated to raising the level of professionalism among managers, service providers, and community volunteer leaders statewide, FCAP offers Florida-specific training in all levels of the community association industry, including its Certified Florida Community Association Manager (CFCAM) program for newly licensed community association managers in Florida. The certification includes membership in FCAP and requires completion of the Florida Advanced CAM Studies course, completion of Florida advanced CAM Studies exam package, and approval by the FCAP Review Board.
