Become a Volunteer

Become a Volunteer

Homeowners Associations thrive on volunteers and there are many volunteer opportunities available. The dedication and skills of volunteers are an invaluable commodity.

Which volunteer option is the right choice for you? Are you a born leader with fierce decision making skills? Consider a position on the Board of Directors. Was your home or vehicle recently broken into? Become invloved in our strong and active Crime Watch/ Block Captain Committee. Do you have a green thumb? Then the yard of the month/beautification committee is for you!

Whatever your motivation, there’s a place just for you. Volunteers are in high demand. Find out how you can help and make yourself at home!

Board of Directors

Board of Directors

Following is a summary of the role each officer may play on the Board of Directors; however, the board may elect to transfer some roles to the manager. For example, the manager may lead the meeting or take the minutes; however, the decision makers are the elected directors, not the manager.

President
The role of the President is that of a leader. The President typically presides over the meetings, keeps the agenda going and ensures sound decisions are made. The President leads discussions and ensures productivity. The President often signs legal documents such as loans and contracts and serves as a signatory for checks (payments).

Vice President
The Vice-President shall act in place of the President in the event of his/her absence, inability or refusal to act, and shall exercise and discharge such other duties as may be required of this position by the Board.

Secretary
The Secretary is typically responsible for the minutes of the meeting; however, the manager is often assigned this task and the Secretary signs the acceptance of the minutes upon board approval. The Secretary may also sign various legal documents such as contracts.

Treasurer
The treasurer serves as a signatory for checks and reviews the payables and financials. Management handles the daily operation of the financials; however, the treasurer serves as a checks and balance. The Treasurer also signs financial documents such as tax returns, audits or loans.

Director at Large
With a seven member Board, several of the Board members may not have officer responsibilities. That does not mean they devote any less time to the community business.  All board members are part of the discussions and the decision making process.  All board members spend time outside of meetings communicating with the neighbors and preparing for handling community business.

Committee Volunteers

Committee Volunteers

Nominating
This group is charged with locating willing candidates to run for election to the Board of Directors. This is a committee that does not require a constant commitment, just someone with a good judge of character and a bit of social skill to hunt them out.

Architectural Review
This committee reviews all home improvement applications submitted by homeowners requesting improvement to their home such as a new roof, paint or a pool. The Members must have an understanding of the governing documents as well as strong decision making ability. This committee is responsible to ensure submissions are in compliance with the general design aesthetic of the community and be able to work within time constraints.

Pool
This committee works with the Board to ensure that the Summerwood aquatic facilities are well maintained.  The Pool Committee will make recommendations for upgrades to the pools and pool related items. 

Beautification/Yard of the Month
This committee selects the monthly Yard of the Month Winners April to December.  An eye for beauty will help this committee succeed.  This committee also works with the Board to ensure the common area landscape is well maintained. The committee may assist with color and plant selection of seasonal installations. 

Communications (Newsletter)
This committee will oversee the general communications to the residents. This includes the publication of a newsletter. A nose for news, creativity, and strong written skills are beneficial for this crew.
