The HOA Network (HOAN) Board held its first community forum for HOA-governed and non-governed communities on March 1. It was a great start, with a standing room only crowd. Board members from 19 HOAs and several non-HOAs represented their neighborhoods to hear best practices on community safety. Special thanks to Major Stuart VanHoozer, Cobb County Precinct 2 Commander; and Louis Defense, Smyrna’s Public Information Officer, accompanying officers; and Flock Safety Systems, who gave outstanding presentations on what HOA’s can do to better monitor and protect their neighborhoods. Currently, we are working on building out the HOAN infrastructure, including website page and gathering resource information for you. Stay tuned for more to come soon! Questions? Email Ray Thomas.
