Serve your community by a joining a committee!
Would you like to contribute your talents and ideas to help your community? Consider serving on a committee! The time commitment is not excessive – committees meet once a month for between one and two hours, depending on the agenda that month. And committee work offers an inside look at how the association works and gives you a say in SOA affairs. As a bonus, serving on a committee gives you a chance to get to know fellow residents.

Committee work offers an inside look at how the association works and committee members have a say in SOA affairs. The time commitment is not excessive – committees meet once a month for between one and two hours, depending on the agenda each month, plus there are committee projects to be completed between meetings. Most of this work can be done at your convenience at home.
