Community Advocacy Network Launches New Website

Margate, FL (PRWEB) November 05, 2012 

The Community Advocacy Network (CAN), Florida’s leading voice for the interests of millions of community association residents statewide, has announced the launch of their redesigned website at CAN is an advocacy initiative for those who live, serve and work in common interest ownership communities. The new website will have many of the same features CAN members enjoyed on the old website including the Capitol Connection, for even easier communication with elected officials and local media outlets, and the CAN Resource page where you can access the free guidebook series including the one of a kind Hurricane Preparedness Guide of Community Associations. 

The new calendar of events will include all of CAN’s popular classes taught throughout Florida by Bill and Susan Raphan and Katzman Garfinkel’s attorneys. These free classes run the gamut of association operations and include topics such as maintaining order via rules, proper meeting protocol, collection pitfalls, budgets and reserves, service animal requests and more!

The Community Advocacy Network (CAN) is Florida’s leading voice for the interests of more than 60,000 community associations statewide, advocating for progressive community association legislation and leading the fight against over-regulation of private residential communities by state and local government.

As a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization, CAN’s year-round educational program provides the latest information to Florida community association members on issues critical to the maintenance of their community lifestyles and property values. Each year since its inception in 2007, CAN has spearheaded important State legislative reforms designed to protect and enhance Florida community association living and foster the financial stability and operational integrity of common-interest ownership communities statewide.

Established by the law firm of Katzman Garfinkel, the Community Advocacy Network operates with the guidance of a volunteer Advisory Council of community association managers, Board members and attorneys from throughout the state. Organizational membership is open to all Florida condominiums, co-operatives, homeowner associations, timeshares and mobile home communities.
