The Regulatory Council of Community Association Managers is created within the department and consists of seven members appointed by the Governor (Charlie Crist) and confirmed by the Senate.
Five members of the council are licensed community association managers, one is a community association manager employed by a timeshare managing entity as described in ss.468.438 and 721.13, who have held an active license for 5 years. The remaining two council members shall be residents of the State of Florida and must not be or ever have been connected with the business of community association management.
The Governor Charlie Crist will appoint members for terms of 4 years. Members will serve until their successors are appointed. Members’ service on the council will begin upon appointment and continue until their successors are appointed.

Here are some notable 2007 changes made to the Florida Statute.

718.106 Condominium parcels; appurtenances; possession and enjoyment —
(5) A local government may not prohibit condominium unit owners or an association from permitting guests, licensees, or invitees access to a public beach adjacent to or adjoining the condominium property. (Maybe in the passed, local government would prohibit gate use or pathways leading to the beach?)

718.301 Transfer of association control; claims of defect by association —
(6) Prior to the developer relinquishing control of the association pursuant to subsection (4), actions taken by members of the board of administration designated by the developer are considered actions taken by the developer, and the developer is responsible to the association and its members for all such actions. (Too many times the developer’s will appoint residents and not regulate their actions. It only make sense that the developer’s stay in full  control until turnover.)

(7) In any claim against a developer by an association alleging a defect in design, structural elements, construction, or any mechanical, electrical, fire protection, plumbing, or other element that requires a licensed professional for design or installation under chapter 455, chapter 471, chapter 481, chapter 489, or chapter 633, such defect must be examined and certified by an appropriate Florida licensed engineer, design professional, contractor, or otherwise licensed Florida individual or entity. (It’s pretty obvious why this law is necessary.)
