Navigating the statutes, processes, procedures and best business practices can be tricky. Professional management with AMS, as well as the advice of an attorney is crucial. Our FREE HOA board education series is for new board members, as well as seasoned community leaders.

At Association Management Services NW, we are dedicated to helping our Board Members succeed. One of the ways we do that is with our Board Member Education Series. These classes offer valuable information from attorneys, insurance agents, and experienced AMS personnel.

When and Where 
Classes are held monthly in Oregon and Washington, usually at our offices.
