Broadlands Association invites you to volunteer to serve on the Board of Directors!
Serving on the Board is a three-year commitment, which includes 12 monthly Board meetings, the Annual Membership Meeting, and Budget Meeting. This year, three positions are open for election. Monthly Board meetings are scheduled on the second Tuesday of each month at 6pm and last an average of two hours.  We are currently holding meetings virtually via the Zoom platform but traditionally hold meetings at the Clubhouse with dinner served but plan to return to that format in the future.  As a Board member, you may need to review emails and respond to resident inquiries between meetings. You are required to review all board meeting materials in advance of the meetings, which are distributed electronically the week before the meeting. We encourage you to review the information below and consider submitting your candidacy to serve your community. Candidate forms are due by 5pm on March 22, 2024.
