Join our Board of Directors

We are always looking for engaged, dedicated volunteers to serve on our board. The regular session of the board meets on the third Wednesday of every month via Google Meet. Special sessions and subcommittee meetings will be held on an as-needed basis. Any owner in good standing is eligible to serve. If you’re not a member yet, you can join here.

Application Process and Board Election Timeline

Interested candidates should submit their application to the board. The board will review all applications received and vote to appoint new directors in their next closed board session.
