Tell Florida Legislators "NO ACTION REQUIRED" on UPL CAM Legislation.

On September 21, 2012, the Florida Bar Standing Committee on Unauthorized Practice of Law heard arguments that certain tasks and duties now being performed by community association managers could be considered Unauthorized Practice of Law.

Although the issue was previously addressed in 1996 and acted on at that time (ref. Florida Bar re: Advisory Opinion-Activities of Community Association Managers, 681 So.2d 1119-Fla. 1996), it is still an active issue with at least one more meeting planned to address it.

In addition, FCAP (Florida Community Association Professionals) members believe that legislation will possibly be proposed in 2013 that will further limit the professional activity of Florida's licensed community association managers.

FCAP members feel that these restrictions will result in the legal requirement for additional professional services and increased costs to the communities they serve. FCAP also feels that these restrictions will result in a devaluation of their professional license.

It is the opinion of FCAP that the 1996 opinion which clearly outlines what is considered Unauthorized Practice of Law is adequate and "no action is required" to clarify or increase these items.

Please join FCAP in urging Florida state law makers, lobbyists, and legislators to adopt a "No Action Required" policy in regard to Community Association Managers' Unauthorized Practice of Law.
