Even our senile President declared that “the Pandemic is officially over” (even if the Press Secretary later on stated that he “misspoke”)!


That means: No more State of Emergency – no more “Association Emergency Powers” (FS 718.1265). The Florida statutes are again valid, no more exemptions as to board and/or membership meetings.


That means that these meetings have to be done ON PHYSICAL LOCATION as it has been the case before the Pandemic started. No more Zoom meetings where the person on the “button” can mute an owner who is saying something the board or the CAM doesn’t like.


Yes, boards can chose to put the meeting on Zoom (same as on speaker phone) for people who don’t want to participate in person, but the actual meeting has again to take place on physical location, meaning the clubhouse or other facilities that have been used for these kinds of meetings before the Pandemic.


Florida Statutes are in full force again, meaning no more “convenient” Zoom meetings.


Board members and CAMS have to face the owners again – in “Public Meetings On Physical Location”.

Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice, Florida 's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group. CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in community  

associations. He moved to Florida in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues for his own purposes. End of retirement!


CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in Tallahassee - finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.


The organization has two websites to inform interested Florida homeowners and condo owners:

News Website:

Educational Website:

We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all service providers surely have a different interest! We are trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking in Florida !
