Contribute to your community by serving on a committee
The success of our Association depends upon getting our members involved in the various committees that the Board of Directors depends upon for support and guidance. Volunteering to serve on one of the Association’s committees is a great way to become involved and contribute to our community.
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. If you need more convincing, here are 10 reasons to volunteer for an HOA.
If you want to get a taste of what meetings are like, Finance & Budget, Communications, and Facility committee sessions are always open to SOA members, no need to reserve a spot ahead of time. Committees meet in the Conference Room in the lower level of The Club at Town Center. (See this page for meeting dates and times.)
We are accepting applications for Communications, Facilities and Community Standards (CSC) committees. To give you an idea of what each committee is responsible for, here are links to current charters, a list of experience/skills we are looking for and the dates and times the committee normally meets:
