CHOA Board & Committees
CHOA Board of Directors
CHOA’s functioning and management occurs according to its Governing Documents. To carry out rules and processes set forth in those documents, CHOA has an elected Board of Directors (Board) comprised of volunteer homeowners in good standing
The Board meets in the CHOA Business Office once a month unless emergency or special (unscheduled) sessions are required. There are seven seats on the Board. The Board works with CHOA’s management company to ensure optimal day-to-day and long-term operations, planning, and fiduciary decisions are carried out in the best interest of the community.
Board meeting minutes and agendas are found on the Board’s documents page. All agendas, by law, are posted outside the Business Office at least four days before a scheduled Board meeting. A best effort is made to share documents online in a timely matter.
