Dan Angelo, President of ASA; and Gary Fenstermacher, President of ASC

2:30-3:30 pm,

Live in the Great Room and

an ASA Zoom Webinar*


Note: This program has been specially organized for ASA members who live in the Academy Village; it will not likely be of general interest.  It is being Zoomed as a service to Villagers not currently in residence or hesitant to gather live.

With so many new residents, some of whom may be—understandably–bewildered by the interrelationships of the three interrelated but independent corporations responsible for the operations of the Academy Village, now is an opportune moment for old residents Dan Angelo and Gary Fenstermacher to explain the two corporations here that are NOT the Academy Village Homeowners Association. In accord with the documents founding our community (the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, or CC&Rs), all owners and long-term renters at Academy Village are dues-paying members of the Arizona Senior Academy. The Academy Services Corporation owns and operates the Villas and formerly administered a Wellness Program for all. Even people who have lived in homeowners’ associations in the past need guidance about the history and intricate relationship of the ASA and ASC with the HOA of the Academy Village.

Dan Angelo has been retired for just over six years, most of which time he has lived in Academy Village.  Before retirement, his career consisted of 40 years of working in higher education, mostly in California, and mostly in administration. He has been happily married to his wife Alma for nearly 42 years and has two children: a daughter who works with the National Theatre Company in New York City and a son who works with a tech start-up in San Francisco. 

Gary Fenstermacher moved to Academy Village in 2005. Not long after his arrival, he became involved with the Academy Services Corporation, becoming its president some six years later. He is professor emeritus at the University of Michigan and former dean of the college of education at the University of Arizona. While at UA, Gary worked closely with Henry Koffler, the former president of UA who founded Academy Village just a few years after Gary’s departure. This personal association led to Gary’s considerable interest in both senior healthcare and the historical development of this remarkable community.
