TCAA: The Voice of POAs at the Capitol 

By Paul Gaines

The 87th Legislative Session is nearly upon us. Normally, everyone would be preparing for the frantic hustle and bustle a legislative session brings to the capitol in Austin, but this session will likely see many debates taking place virtually. While this session may look completely different than any other in Texas history, the Texas Community Association Advocates (TCAA) will still be hard at work for the benefit of property owners associations (POAs) across Texas.



Neighborhood Watch

2020 has seen unprecedented upheaval around the United States. From a global pandemic, to nationwide protests and unforeseen natural disasters, these events have created many unknowns for homeowners around the country, and in many cases, are causing people to spend more time at home. As a result, homeowners are more vigilant of the daily movements on their streets and in their neighborhoods. But, as many of us begin to return to more of our pre-COVID lives, the homeowners may want to maintain that same sort of vigilance by forming a neighborhood watch. 


Join Shareholder Leah K. Burton and Associate Paul Gaines of our San Antonio Office as they discuss neighborhood watch programs in property owners associations. They will take you through some of the do's and dont's about POA involvement in the program, what can go wrong and the potential liability a POA may face if it does. 

*This course is approved by the Community Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) to fulfill 1 hour of continuing education requirements for the CMCA certification.
