Our network of association professionals provides objective, timely guidance for associations facing all types of common problems. We’ve got you covered!

ECHO Journal

The ECHO Journal has been ECHO’s signature publication since our inception in 1976. Our members can expect quality, informative articles by industry experts about current HOA issues. Individual Members can access the Journal online in the members-only areas of our website. Enjoy a decade’s worth of excellent HOA writing in our archives.

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

Free & Discounted Events

Sometimes an article isn’t enough. For those who want a more personal experience, ECHO holds 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.
