HOA Membership

ECHO has educated California homeowner association boards and members for over 40 years. Educating associations is our primary purpose, and HOA Members can choose from a broad array of options to learn about current law, best practices, and to solve common problems. Our 12 month HOA Membership includes:

  • Education. Access hundreds of articles and videos with HOA guidance.
  • Open Access. Educate your community with complete online access for all association members.
  • ECHO Journal. Receive up to 5 copies of our printed ECHO Journal (and unlimited online access for all homeowners).
  • Statute Book. Receive a printed copy of the Davis-Stirling Act.
  • Legal Guidance. Search or browse California and Federal HOA laws, annotated by HOA attorneys.
  • Free & Discounted Events. Attend all ECHO events for free or at a reduced price.
  • Discounted Publications. Purchase publications at a discount through the ECHO store.


Parking problems? Facing a recall? Trying to reduce delinquencies? With hundreds of searchable articles and videos available, you are sure to find the information you need. Our network of association professionals provides objective, timely guidance for associations facing all types of common problems – even when it comes to that owner (you know who we mean). We’ve got you covered.

Open Access

Don’t just educate yourself, educate your community. We believe that educated owners form healthy communities that make good decisions and expect quality management. Our Association Membership benefits extend to every owner in your association – not just the board of directors. Use ECHO to involve your association’s membership by sharing information, providing important updates about new laws, and to grow your sense of community.

ECHO Journal

The ECHO Journal has been ECHO’s signature publication since our inception in 1973. Our members can expect quality, informative articles by industry experts about current HOA issues. Association Members can designate up to 5 recipients of our printed Journal. And all association homeowners can access the Journal online in the members-only areas of our website. Enjoy a decade’s worth of excellent HOA problem solving advice in our archives.

Statute Book

New members will receive a one-time mailing of ECHO's Statute Book for each member of their board. The book contains the entirety of the Davis-Stirling Act, the primary collection of laws governing California HOAs. 

Legal Guidance

We aren’t association attorneys, but we sure know a lot of them. With ECHO, take your knowledge of association law to the next level: our searchable index of association laws contains not only the text of the law, but important notes on the text that make it understandable.

Free & Discounted Events

Sometimes an article isn’t enough. For those who want a more personal experience, ECHO holds dozens of free or discounted in-person events throughout Northern California. ECHO members - both board members and owners - can meet other board members and get expert advice directly from top association attorneys and professionals.

Discounted Publications

Our online store offers a collection of the best publications available to homeowner associations. We make those publications available to members at a discount. Use ECHO to build your association’s library.
