Associa’s Canyon Gate Hosts Homeowner Seminar

--()--Associa Canyon Gate:



Canyon Gate, an Associa company, will host complimentary board and realtor events on Wednesday, April 9 at 7 p.m. and Thursday, April 10 at 12 p.m. as part of its commitment to education and knowledge sharing to better serve its clients.

Wednesday’s seminar will discuss recent changes to New Mexico law that impacts community associations across the state and provide insights for homeowners in helping shape public policy as it relates to homeowners associations. The event will be led by Associa’s Senior Vice President of External Affairs, Andrew Fortin, who has worked as an advocate for homeowners association for close to a decade. The presentation will cover the New Mexico Homeowners Association Act passed in 2013 and what it means for boards and management companies. The program will also address how board members can be actively engaged in the legislative process to ensure laws passed benefit all members of the community.

“Homeowners associations provide benefits to all New Mexicans,” notes Mr. Fortin. “They raise property values, provide for neighborhood governance and help keep taxes low. But living in an HOA is not a spectator sport, so we work with our clients to keep them educated and active in the public debate.”

The realtor luncheon on Thursday will be a roundtable discussion between community association professionals and realtors to talk about areas of common concern and help realtors understand the role and benefit of HOAs in the housing market.

Refreshments and meals will be served at both events.
