Common Interest Realty Associations are not unique to Florida but are so widespread that CPAs must know the complex issues faced by these associations. We have planned this conference with the most relevant and up-to-date information available by gathering speakers who interact regularly with these communities. This conference presents information from regulators, attorneys, reserve specialists and CPAs specializing in this industry. We strive to bring you topics to help you improve and grow your practice.

This 15th annual CIRA conference structures information among two tracks. One track is focused on senior staff and partners who want to engage in round table discussions with their peers and dive deeper into recent developer turnover issues and other detailed topics. The other track is structured toward staff needing more information on CIRA’s unique tax and auditing issues. There are general sessions to provide everyone with updates to the Auditing and Accounting Standards, Peer Review issues, Florida Department of Business Regulation’s rules, and State of Florida’s legislative updates. We focus on discussions and real-life examples to encourage all participants to engage.

The CIRA Committee hopes you will join us for these two informative days.

- Julia Mercier, CPA, CAM
