All Association Joint Advisory Committees assist in planning and making recommendations to the Association administration and the Association Board of Directors. These committees analyze the problems and concerns of the Association members and aid in identifying and solving issues. Such matters may originate within the committees, suggested by the Board and management, or initiated by membership concerns. All committee tasks shall be assigned or approved by the Board and administration.

Property owners serving on the Board of Directors are unpaid volunteers. Members of our committees (Golf, Lakes, and Recreation) are also unpaid volunteers.

The committees generally meet monthly. Committee duties generally occupy two hours per month from a committee member. However, a regular meeting may be canceled for lack of agenda items, or the committee may hold additional meetings or activities initiated by the committee itself. The term is three years.

Committee meetings are open to Association members, and a press representative is usually in attendance; the committees provide minutes to the Corporate Secretary. Some applicable experience is desired but not required.

The July meeting will include orientation with the Board Chairperson and General Manager.

Golf Committee

The committee provides advice and recommendations regarding all facets of the golfing operations and facilities to the Board and/or the administration.  Each member is assigned a golf course for maintenance review on a monthly basis.

The committee meets at 4:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at the Country Club.
