SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Nov 27, 2018)
--- FirstService Residential, Arizona’s leading HOA management company, hosted its sixth annual FirstService Residential Conference and Exposition on Friday, November 16 at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix.

As the largest HOA board member event in Arizona, more than 500 individuals attended, including board members from across the state of Arizona, nearly 100 vendors as well as industry professionals and legal experts.
