Committees

More than 200 LOWA members serve on 21 standing committees. These volunteers donate their time and experiences, monitor, maintain and improve the infrastructure and amenity programs throughout our community, enforce our Restrictive Covenants and Regulations and carry out projects to support the work of the General Manager and the Board of Directors. The BOD authorizes ad hoc and special committees as needed.

Committee meetings are open to all LOWA members and tenants. Committee membership is restricted to LOW property owners, although tenants may serve as non-voting members. Members serve three-year terms. Most committees consist of five to seven voting members with alternates and advisors as requested by the Chair, and each has an assigned BOD liaison. New officers are elected yearly when the committees reconstitute. If you have an interest in committee work, submit an Application for Committee Membership or pick one up from the LOWA Receptionist at the Holcomb Building. Volunteers are always needed.

Committees who have submitted approved meeting minutes can be read online. Click on the committee name below to take you to the committee page. On each page are the committee's minutes.

Function of a Board Liaison to Committees.

The function of a Board Liaison to committees is to:

  • Promote effective communication between the committee and the Board.

  • Communicate the strategic plan of the Association to the committee

  • Foster a collaborative working relationship between the members, management and the Board

  • Monitor progress of the committee towards achieving its goals as set out in the Committee Charter

  • The Liaison may join in the discussions during the meeting by offering his or her own opinion but never that of the Board

  • The Liaison does not speak for the Board. Any statement given to the committee on behalf of the Board must be backed up by documentation of a Board decision.
     

Robert's Rules of Order:

While it is not a requirement that committees follow Robert's Rules of Order in conducting meetings, it is a recommended method for managing meetings. Visit the Robert's Rules of Order web site for information.
