The announcement was made at the Florida Communities of Excellence conference and awards ceremony among several hundred representatives from community associations around the state.

The 2012 Homeowners Association Community of the Year is awarded to a Florida community that has shown exemplary accomplishments in multiple areas of community association services, facilities, problem solving and innovations.

The Ibis POA was also honored with the financial innovation award, and was previously awarded the civic volunteerism, security and safety initiatives, disaster preparedness and manager of excellence awards.

The Ibis POA is the master association for the Ibis Golf & Country Club community located in West Palm Beach.

The Ibis POA consists of administration, public safety and maintenance departments that strive to enhance the lives of approximately 5,000 residents in a gated community of 1,871 homes.

“This is the result of the achievements of Ibis POA’s dedicated staff, and also our residents, who share their time and talents serving on the board and its committees,” said Ibis POA Executive Director Ed Latalladi. “Our cooperative relationship with the residents and the community’s country club staff is the most important aspect of our operation.”

Ibis POA President Jay Chaskin added, “We are appreciative of this award that recognizes all that goes on behind the scenes to ensure the beauty and safety of the Ibis community, as well as the responsible stewardship of property owners’ assessments.”

The Florida Communities of Excellence Awards are presented annually to community associations that demonstrate excellence in 10 specific categories.

Nominations are judged by a select panel of independent experts chosen from among educators, policy experts, consultants, public officials and professionals within each industry/category represented. ¦
