I, along with the entire staff at Associa Community Management Concepts – Jacksonville (CMC – Jax), am thrilled to begin the management partnership with your community in January 2016. We have been in communication with your Board of Directors over the past several months to ensure a transition that is as seamless as possible. Our Vice President of Operations Jennifer Presson, CAM, CMCA, along with myself are working steadily with your assigned community manager, Bernard Vargas Vila, to prepare all the necessary items.
You should have received a letter in the mail which briefly introduced our company and some of the services we will be offering to your community. Enclosed in that letter was an Owner Information Sheet.
We kindly ask that you complete that form and return to our office if you have not already done so. This will help to ensure that we have the most accurate and up-to-date contact information for owners and residents.
I would like to share with you a little bit more about a few of the services we will be providing to your community by way of the homeowners as well as the Board of Directors and committee members. Please visit our website at www.cmcjaxfla.com to learn more about how Associa CMC–Jax is delivering unsurpassed management and lifestyle services to communities throughout Jacksonville and surrounding areas.
ARB Committee Manager from Smartwebs is an online collaborative environment used by architectural review committees, their community association manager, and the Board of Directors to track all documents, notes, decisions made, and expiration deadlines related to the architectural review process – providing a centralized location for current and historical project requests. Once enrolled in the program, the architectural review committee has its own site that displays all project requests with documents, votes, and notifications for the homeowner. It is username and password protected to track member activity and ensure that all architectural modification requests and homeowner information is kept confidential and secure.

Covenant Compliance Inspections: existing and future association members. CCI helps ensure all current owners are in compliance with the community covenants and protects new owners as they purchase and become members of the association. CCI also provides a degree of protection to existing homeowners as they sell their home by giving them the added assurance that their lots have been adequately inspected and that the purchases will not seek future recourse against the seller for a covenants violation that may have existed but wasn’t known at closing.
