1. HWPOA BOARD MEETING – CANCELED
The April HWPOA Board meeting has been canceled. The Annual Membership meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 9 and the next Board meeting will be on June 13.
2. SEEKING NEW HWPOA BOARD MEMBERS
Join the Board of Directors
Holmby Westwood Property Owners Association
The HWPOA Board is seeking Holmby Westwood residents to volunteer to serve as a Director for 1 year. We usually meet on the second Tuesday of every month except for August and December. We ask only that you be a financially current member of the Association for the past 2 years and have an interest in maintaining and improving the quality of life we have all come to know and enjoy.
You will work with many neighbors who serve on the Board, some who have served for many years. This is a way to help your community, to work with city officials and departments, to plan events, and to support the protections in place today.
The Holmby Westwood community is over 80 years old and preservation, livability, and schools are key to its residential value. Serving on our Board of Directors is a way to safeguard one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime.
We want the next generation to be able to carry on what we have fought to protect for these many years. Holmby Westwood Property Owners Association is a highly respected association throughout the city and, with your involvement, we hope that will continue indefinitely.
Our meetings are held at Belmont Village, Wilshire at Warner Ave., 8–9:30 PM. Our committees include: Security, Traffic, Holmby Park, Architectural Supervising Committee, 4th of July event, Emergency Preparedness, Filming (in the neighborhood), WLAPD liaison and more.
Please, contact Dana Glenn, our Office Manager, and let her know that you want to join our Board. You will have an extremely worthwhile experience while giving back to a community that has remained highly desirable for many years. That did not happen accidentally. It happened with a commitment from hundreds of our neighbors over 80 years!
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (310) 470-1785 to contact Dana. The deadline for submissions is April 10. We look forward to hearing from you!!
Your HWPOA Board of Directors
3. COMMUNITY SECURITY MEETING
Mark your calendars now for a Community Security Meeting on Wednesday, April 12th from 7:00 – 9:00 PM in Fellowship Hall on the second floor of Westwood United Methodist Church (northeast corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Warner Ave.). Free parking is located next door at Belmont Village Senior Living. Enter the courtyard just west of the church and proceed to the stairs just inside the rear building.
SSA Security Group (Patrol and response) and Moore Protection (Monitoring) have been invited to make a presentation to the community by some of our HW neighbors who were previous clients in Pacific Palisades. HWPOA is not sponsoring this event. Invitations and information were mailed earlier this week.
To attend, please RSVP to email@example.com
Questions? Call SSA Security Group at 818-773-5600 or Moore Protection at 310-540-7229
Please note, HWPOA is not associated with SSA Security or Moore Protection in any way and does not endorse or recommend any security company.
4. NEW USPS SERVICE – INFORMED DELIVERY
The USPS has a new service available called Informed Delivery. If you sign up, you can see a scan of all of your incoming mail that is expected to be delivered. That way, once your mail is delivered later in the day, you know if anything has been lost/stolen.
Users will have the option of getting an email with photos of the front of card- and letter-size mail pieces that are due to arrive that day, or a day or two later.
It might also be handy if you are expecting something important, and don’t want to have to wait until you get home to find out if the item has arrived or not.

Earth Day event is a great opportunity for residents of the Golden State to do something meaningful for their communities, as well as the planet, by helping improve their local state parks.
