Larry Checca
Treasurer

Having retired about 10 years ago after a varied career in sales and marketing in the field of mortgage financing, primarily serving the manufactured housing industry, I have continued to maintain a hand in related activities to stay busy. I enjoy being helpful and doing work with some worthwhile organizations in order to give back as a way of being thankful for having had a successful career.

Recently relocated to South Florida has proven to be a bit hectic, but I’m sure that it will all settle down soon. Being a member of FAMP, Broward-Gold Coast Chapter, seems to be a natural fit, not only because of my background in finance and lending in combination with extensive experience in the housing industry and trade associations on the state and federal levels. I am honored to be a part of the team that will lead the Broward-Gold Coast Chapter.
