The Job of the Journal with Michael Hamline, Editor, Florida Community Association Journal

Take It To The Board with Donna DiMaggio Berger

Oct 13 2021 • 21 mins

If you’re one of Florida’s 18K+ community association managers or a board member to one of the state’s 60K+ shared ownership communities, you know the FLCAJ. Or do you?

Donna and Michael put the publication under a microscope, discussing what it really takes to create and release over 100 pages of educational content that outlines how a process works, offers money-saving strategies, removes managerial headaches, and, ultimately, helps leadership protect its community’s quality of life.

Additional highlights include: Michael’s wish list for future content, why some suggested articles are rejected, how the FLCAJ promotes CAM certification, and whether the digital version will eventually replace the print edition.

BONUS: Hear Michael's surprising response when questioned about his own HOA board meeting participation. (Physician, heal thyself!)
