HOA Information

HOA Informational Workshops

Each year, City of Boulder Neighborhood Services hosts Homeowner Association (HOA) informational sessions, a series of classes hosted in direct response to resident requests for additional information related to HOA management, legal updates and networking opportunities. 

Inside an HOA is for residents who serve as HOA board members and others who have a desire to better understand the laws and requirements related to HOA management and good governance, as well as to provide networking and interaction for HOA board members across the city.  

HOA Basics

Are you a resident or board member of an HOA? There is a lot to learn and understand about how HOAs work and how to be an effective resident or board member. Neighborhood Services offers HOA Basics twice each year, featuring Shanneyvie Johnson from the Colorado State Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Shanneyvie will go over all the basics you need to know and answer questions along the way.

HOA Officers Forum

HOA Officers Forum  is specifically for Board Officers who are familiar with the basics and would welcome a deeper dive into particular subjects.

Upcoming Workshops

WHAT: HOA 2.0, an informational class
WHEN:  Wednesday, Oct. 9, 6 to 8 p.m.
WHERE: West Senior Center, 909 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder

Are you already involved with your HOA and looking for a greater understanding of the legalese and statutory concepts that govern them? Then this is the class for you! This class will center on in-depth analysis and review of CCIOA (Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act) and the Nonprofit Act. We will also focus on the applicability of CCIOA to pre-CCIOA and post-CCIOA communities and the difference in the treatment of both.

Feel free to bring any relevant questions you might have to discuss as a class. Registration is not required but very much appreciated. Dinner will be provided.



HOA Basics: Wednesday, Nov. 6. Details and registration information coming soon!
