  • Contribute skills, knowledge and experience when appropriate
  • Listen respectfully to other points of view, not monopolizing discussion
  • Educate yourself about the needs and concerns of the entire POA membership, listening to all views and not just those of the most vocal groups
  • Help provide the foundation and direction that the POA is to take; then step back and support the General Manager to manage the daily operations
  • Keep confidential information confidential
  • A board member has no individual power—such governance comes from the Board acting as a whole
  • Prior to voting, you may state your opinions and enter into discussion; however, once the vote is taken, a Board member supports the Board’s position
  • Always be aware that you represent the organization for both the resident and non-resident membership while focusing on the goals and mission of the POA and not on personal goals
  • Board members should have a broad view when conducting board business with no personal agenda

A committed Board is the nucleus of a successful organization. Your talents and focus on serving the POA membership can assist the POA to move forward to meet the challenges of a growing community.
