More Reasons to Join F.A.C.E.

If you are interested in furthering your career, then joining a professional association like the Florida Association of Code Enforcement is a great start! An association is a synergistic group, meaning that the effect of a collection of people is greater than one person!

In the great race to the top who you know matters and our association is filled with potential contacts. Our Certification Courses, and The F .A.C.E. Annual Training Conference gives members a chance to connect and create relationships, making it a fabulous networking opportunity for members who want to strengthen ties with colleagues in our profession.

Continuing education and professional development is key if you want to succeed in your profession; F.A.C.E. offers five (5) Certification Courses to help you maintain your edge, and keep your skills sharp and current.

All occupations have best practices specific to their line of work. If you are new to the Code Enforcement Profession and don't have much experience, unfamiliarity of best practices can pose a serious risk to you and your jurisdiction. We provide a forum for disseminating best practices, and becoming a member of our association gives you the best resources to learn what best practices govern our profession.

Annual Fees

Membership with the Association is valid from October 1 through September 30 of the following year.  The Annual Fee is due October 1 and must be paid by December 31 to avoid a late fee. Annual Fees are paid through Members Portal or Agency Portal (for agencies paying memberships for multiple employees). The Agency Portal allows for membership payments to be made for you by your agency but does NOT grant them access to your information.  Payment options include: check, money order, or credit cards online. Discover, American Express, Mastercard or Visa are accepted.

If you are F. A. C. E. certified, maintaining your membership is crucial; unpaid fees can lead to Late Fees and Decertification!

Dues Increase for the 2022-2023 Year

On April 18, 2022, the Florida Association of Code Enforcement Board of Directors had a budget meeting. The Board reviewed the budget for the upcoming year. Unfortunately, expenses have risen to outpace current incoming dues. For this reason, the Board has voted to raise membership dues from $50.00 to $75.00 to offset rising costs.

Some of the reasons driving the costs are adding new services and website software. We are currently moving to a new online website platform, learning management system, and membership database management system that will track our Certification and Recertification status and trainings while giving each Member the opportunity to have more control over their training portfolios. The Board of Directors has also entered into a more expanded agreement with PTI for timely curriculum updates and testing upgrades and exploring additional options (online testing) for the future.

The Board of Directors have not had an in-person meeting in 2 years, trying to save funds. The Association has been without revenue from training for almost one ½ years mostly due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. At the end of the day, this was a necessary step to correct our current deficiencies and provide the members of the Association with necessary resources to grow.

An initial dues notice will be sent out July 1, 2022; while individuals and agencies are welcome to pay the new fees prior to October 1, 2022, early dues payments (those made in July, August, or September 2022) will need to reflect the dues increase described above.
