2021 FLORIDA LEGISLATIVE SESSION
Published January 29, 2021

||Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice,
's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group.
CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in
associations. He moved to
in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the

CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in

News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.
Educational Website: http://www.ccfjfoundation.net/.
