FCAA also offers a wide array of workshops and seminars in topics like leasing, marketing, landlord tenant law, fair housing, maintenance, technology, and more.
Together with the Florida Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association, FCAA provides legislative advocacy on local, state, and national levels. Together we’ve tackled issues like rent control, emotional support animal abuse, Section 8 voucher reform, maintenance licensing, and other unbalanced housing policies. These issues would be impossible for properties to tackle alone.
