Your HCCA Officers


We, at HCCA, are dedicated to taking care of each of the 15 HCCA-registered communities in Hollywood. There is no community more important than another. Each and every one of you (and your community) are a vital part of our city's lifeline. And there are never wrong issues; unless they're never brought to our attention. We invite you join us at one of our meetings always on the 3rd Monday of each month @ 7:00pm at David Park Community Center, unless otherwise posted on this website's calendar.

Please take a few more minutes to read about our officers and also become familiar with our website. We're a great leadership group and work well together to serve Hollywood's communities.

HCCA's History

  1. Are You Familiar With HCCA's History?

    HCCA was founded in 1995 by a strong group of civic associations from all across the city. This includes the civic associations of Driftwood, Hollywood Hills , Washington Park, Liberia, Hollywood North Beach, Park East, United Neighbors of South Hollywood and Hollywood Lakes Section Civic Association. These and many other associations are still active today working to improve neighborhood conditions. HCCA has the potential to bring all of this "neighborhood power" together for a greater impact that benefits all Hollywood residents. HCCA membership is open to civic and homeowner associations throughout Hollywood. Annual dues are $20 and entitle a vote to the association's delegates. Please bring your neighborhood association to the table. Current member organizations for 2013 include the following:
