Central Florida Code Enforcement Association (CFCEA)

We are a large organization in Central Florida with members from Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, and Seminole Counties. The CFCEA holds meetings quarterly (Jan, Apr, Jul & Oct). These meetings have training opportunities which are approved by the IOG for F.A.C.E. credits. Check our website for future training at http://www.cfcea.org/ or contact our President, Maddie McDonald, President, at codeenforcement@rockledgepolice.org   for further details. Our meetings offer free training for members and the opportunity to network with fellow code officers. Anyone interested in joining (the dues are still, only $20.00 a year), please contact our treasurer, Debra Boothe at debra.boothe@brevardcounty.us.
