As some of you may be aware, Resource Property Management has been a member of CEOMC (Chief Executive Officers of Management Companies) for over 25 years. This organization’s primary focus is to promote sensible community association legislation within the state of Florida.
As an extension of this focus, CEOMC has partnered with CAN (Community Association Network) for the purpose of offering community associations an avenue by which their voices can be heard relating to legislative issues. This partnership also offers a way for individual community associations to financially support these efforts by making a donation to CAN. Funds collected will be used to support the lobbying efforts of CEOMC, advertising and education related to proposed or pending legislation concerning community associations.
Currently one of the most pressing issues we are working on is the vacation rental lobbying efforts being put forth by national organizations. These organizations are pouring millions of dollars into their cause. For the majority of our community associations, legislation that would remove their individual governing documents authority to regulate rentals, would no longer be enforceable and would be replaced by State laws backed by these organizations.
The below correspondence contains a link to a survey relating to short term rentals and how Florida homeowners will be impacted. It is important that you share this information with your Boards and request their participation in the survey. Their feedback will assist in educating our Florida Legislature and afford them the opportunity to hear directly from their constituents. This survey may also be shared with individual homeowners for additional input.
