BOARD OF TRUSTEES
If you’re considering running for the board, take a few moments to ask yourself the following three questions:
Do I have the time? - As a board member, you will need to devote at least several hours of your time each month to Association business. In addition to regular monthly board meetings, you will need to be active in email discussions, occasional special meetings, off site seminars and workshops. During special projects, you may need to spend a little extra time on Association business. Some board members may also spend a little more time than others if they work with a committee.
Can I make tough decisions when it’s required? - The primary role of the Board is to conduct the business of the Association. This doesn’t just mean approving the budget, but also developing and enforcing policies. Board members are required to step outside their immediate circle of family and neighbors and make decisions based on the greater good of the community.
Can I do all this and have fun, too? - It isn’t all about policies and tough decisions. Our community is only as good as we make it, and establishing and maintaining a sense of community is a part of a board member’s responsibility. Planning and attending functions such as our picnics and being a presence in the community are as important as any policy decisions you may make.
Being a board member can be frustrating at times, but it may also be one of the most rewarding ways you’ll find to volunteer your time. If you’re interested in running for the board or would like more details about board responsibilities, please contact Sharon McKeny Strange, your Community Manager or a current board member.
