In an effort to provide ongoing educational opportunities for residents, the city of Glendale will offer another informative Homeowners’ Association Academy this spring.
The classes are aimed at providing useful tips to existing neighborhood HOA volunteers, residents and board members.
Glendale residents and HOA community leaders will get answers from specialists in the field regarding local, state and federal laws and HOA procedural best practices.
Helping build a knowledge base and pool of willing residents is the motivation behind this free HOA training series, which takes place Tuesdays during February at the Glendale Adult Center, 5970 W. Brown St.
Two early evening classes will be held 5-6:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday and two afternoon classes will be held 2- 3:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday.
