GOVERNANCE

Associations

Century Village East was legally established as a community of condominium associations. Each of our 253 associations is an independent corporation responsible for its own property within its own property lines, i.e., building, parking, land, etc. We occupy within our borders, approximately 750 total acres, 450 of which encompass the property that does not including the waterways, golf course and restaurant. Although the waterways belong to the village, the golf course and restaurant do not. They each are privately owned and operated.

Associations have their own Board of Directors responsible for budgeting, administration, care and upkeep of their respective property. All association members (unit owners) pay an annual assessment for their portion of the costs.

Associations are governed under the Florida Statute, Chapter 718. This statute is specific to Condominium Associations only. Regardless of what is in the respective by laws of these organizations, whatever is stated in Chapter 718 has precedence.

FOR ALL OF YOUR EDUCATIONAL NEEDS

Condominium Owners Organization of Century Village East (COOCVE)

The Associations/buildings together comprise the Condominium Owners Organization of Century Village East or what is better known as COOCVE (pronounced COOK VEE). COOCVE is the organization focused around issues related to the 252 associations. COOCVE provides community leadership dealing with city or county matters as well as providing educational seminars. It strives to resolve problems or supply information to both association boards and their residents. Any of the 252 associations can become a member of COOCVE, with voting representation depending on the number of units per building. Gardens have 1 COOCVE Director (voting representative) and buildings with 56 or 64 units have 2 COOCVE Directors and those buildings with more than 64 units have 3 COOCVE Directors.

The COOCVE Directors (and one COOCVE Alternate Director) are elected by the unit owners of each member association. The COOCVE Directors act as the “congress” of Century Village East. The COOCVE Board consisting of all the elected COOCVE Directors usually meet on the third Tuesday of each month. The COOCVE Directors elect COOCVE Officers (President, 1st, 2nd and 3rd VP, etc.), the seven members of the Recreation Committee and the nine Board Members of Master Management. There are several committees within the COOCVE structure not elected by the Directors like Advisory, Insurance, etc., each with its own important function and role. At an annual election, the COOCVE Directors elect about one-third of the Master Management Board for a three year term, about one-half of the Recreation Committee for a two-year term, and every other year, elect the COOCVE officers for a two-year term. all volunteers. Note: The COOCVE Alternate Directors vote if their respective COOCVE Directors are not present. The best and most comprehensive way to learn about COOCVE is to read the COOCVE documents. They are fairly clear and you will get a good idea.
