We are excited to announce our Fall class schedule! We look forward to seeing you there!


Glendale HOA Academy:
10/15- 5:30- 7:00 p.m.- HOA Communication & Social Media

Associations who communicate early and often with their owners have the fewest problems. Technology is an important part of our day to day lives. There are increasingly more technological advances available to community associations. The Arizona legislature has included the use of technology into new state laws. Online voting, association websites, online payments and virtual meetings have been created to make information, communication and accessibility easier for the association membership and board of directors. This class will show Boards how to communicate with their owners and will discuss how associations can effectively use technology to run their associations.
