The South Florida Cooperator’s Condo, HOA & Co-op Expo Networking and Learning for Boards

More than 2,000 people filled the aisles of the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center to meet more than 340 exhibitors at the South Florida Cooperator’s Condo, HOA & Co-op Expo 

( on December 8th. Board members and managers spent the day meeting with vendors readily available to service their needs and also earned educational credits by attending the day’s free seminar sessions.

Many first timers and regulars attended the fourth annual show. This all-in-one-day event brought together South Florida's best property managers, board members, real estate professionals, shareholders, service providers, vendors and unit owners all under one roof.

Attendees met with vendors on the show floor, took in one or more seminar sessions, and also took full advantage of the free advice booths set up to answer every question imaginable.  Board member Dan Elmer, a first timer, said the resources offered were second to none. “I gathered a lot of useful information for our condo’s needs that we will be utilizing in the future,” said Elmer, a vice president at his Boca Raton condo. “Our main focus was on replacing our roof. And next year, we will have to replace our asphalt driveway,” he said, adding that he found vendors that will help the community stay current on its maintenance.

The South Florida Expo provides the necessary resources and learning tools board members and industry professionals need to stay ahead of the curve. The Expo gave everyone a chance to meet professionals in the community association field.

  • I live in a 55+ villa of over 200 units and pay almost $200 a month as a condition of owning a unit/villa. There is currently no board of directors and only one person receives and disposed the funds. The club house is locked and not maintained and the residents has nowhere to meet or socialize. The Division of COrporation records show that the current manager/president converted the HOA to a PROFIT corporation, as him the sole owner of 100% stock . The former HOA is now inactive since 2004. He explains to us that we are not paying HOA fees but maintenance fees. He is only in his office once a week. He refuses to give financial reports and explains he owns majority of the units and therefore no need for a Board. County record show he does not own a unit here, he do not live here either. He also incorporated a maintenance company addressed at the same office here. We need help as we all are intimated. He once knocked on my door and said. Hi, I am Nick, I am the owner of the place....I am paying mortgage and home insurance.
