Over two years ago, when asked the question: “With so many local organizations, why is there a need for a new one?”  FCAP Director Jim McMurry answered: “At the ground level, FCAP is both an educational and advocacy organization. We intend to raise the awareness of the professional nature of our member managers and service providers, while providing extensive education to all levels of the industry.”   
 
FCAP hasn’t taken their eye off that goal, and we remain an organization committed to education and an advocate for community associations across the state of Florida.  We are very proud of all of our members and extend our gratitude to those that have renewed their memberships and welcome our newest members.

Sometimes we need to take a breath and realize how truly blessed we are to live in this country. Recently I was complaining about something rather insignificant…..a little embarrassed about this…having to park too far from the entrance to the store I needed to visit.

Please forgive me for hijacking the FCAP newsletter this week, but I want to give you some important news. Last week we revealed the new FCAP logo and made reference to the changes that are coming soon. I want you to be the first to see them and also want to give you the reasons behind why we are making the changes.

Beginning early next week, all of the websites associated with FCAP – flcaj.com, theshowfl.com, condojobs.com, and fcaponline.net will redirect to our new website FCAPgroup.com.  From there you can easily access the different services that FCAP offers. Although it is not general knowledge (and still has a couple of kinks to work out), the site is live and accessible if you’d like to take a look. Continue reading

Part 1

CondoJobs Director, Lisa Pinder and FCAP Director, Lisa Whitson recently sat down to discuss realistic expectations of the job market for new community association managers in Florida. Here is Part 1 of a 2-Part Series that is an easy read but so very important to keep on hand for CAMs looking for their first CAM position.

Job Openings > Searching CAMs
LW: This is great advice given what you shared with me that there are fewer open positions than searching CAMs. It’s an upside down market. Giving CAMs every opportunity to be more competitive is important to FCAP. Continue reading
