The Scottsdale Council of Homeowners Associations (SCOHA) is an educational, non-profit organization composed of Scottsdale homeowners associations. SCOHA's goal is to provide a place for its members to gather, analyze, exchange, and distribute information important to the community associations in which they live. SCOHA supports its members' communities through education in order to protect their members' investments in their homes and their quality of life. Since its founding in 1974, SCOHA's membership has grown to over 100 Scottsdale associations.
Over the years, SCOHA has served its membership by distributing information at monthly meetings and through a monthly newsletter. The newsletter contains reviews of pertinent legal issues affecting associations and the minutes of the previous month's meeting. It also includes announcement of important events. SCOHA contributes to a lobbyist each year to help it monitor the legislative sessions. With up-to-date information, SCOHA can alert is members about pending legislation that could affect their associations. The monthly luncheon meetings are held at the Scottsdale Athletic Club at noon on the fourth Tuesday of each month, excluding the summer months and December. Speakers present program topics pertinent to associations. Topics may include legal seminars, legislative updates, landscaping, insurance, budget/reserves, etc. A crowd favorite each year is the legal seminar that allows the members to ask questions of SCOHA's expert legal panel.
Yearly dues are $1.80 per unit with a cap of $195.00 and a minimum of $105.00. The luncheon cost is $15, and reservations must be made in advance.
