The city of Surprise is hosting a series of HOA Connection Classes, which are designed to strengthen the city’s HOA communities.

Residents and HOA board members are invited to attend the following upcoming classes:

February 28 – Proposed Legislation and Information on Fraud in HOAs

Community association attorney Beth Mulcahy will provide a general overview of Arizona community association law and the new bills that have been introduced in the Arizona Legislature in 2017. There will also be a brief discussion on how to prevent theft and fraud of association funds.

The class will be held from 1- 2:30 p.m. in the Surprise Public Safety Building Auditorium, 14250 W. Statler Plaza, Surprise, AZ 85374.

March 8 – HOA Open Meeting Laws

The Arizona Legislature has passed laws requiring planned communities and condominiums to conduct all of their meetings in a manner that is open to the community. This well-intentioned law is sometimes viewed as an unreasonable burden upon board members, which can result in violations. This class will cover: 

• Importance of Arizona's open meeting laws
• Overview of the open meeting laws and how they operate
• Burdens on volunteer board members created by the law
• Typical violations of the law and how they are best addressed

The class will be taught by Steve Cheifetz. Cheifetz has practiced law in Phoenix for 30 years, with the last 15 years of his practice having focused on homeowners association issues and disputes. 

The class will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Surprise Public Safety Building Auditorium, 14250 W. Statler Plaza, Surprise, AZ 85374.

For more information on either of the classes or to register, please contact Ruby Sitea at 623.222.3242 or ruby.sitea@surpriseaz.gov.
