The law firm of Becker and Poliakoff, in partnership with the Community Association Leadership Lobby, recently announced a series of free courses designed to help condo, HOA, and co-op board members to understand what their function and responsibilities are in the state of Florida. These courses, which also provide CE credits for community association managers (CAMs), are held at the firm's office at Becker & Poliakoff, 1 East Broward,Boulevard, Suite 1800, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.
