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 advisory committees and the Board.
  • Communicate the goals and objectives of the Board to the committees
  • Foster a collaborative working relationship between committee members, management and the Board
  • Monitor the progress of the committee towards achieving their goals as defined in their respective Committee Charters
  • The Liaison may join in discussions during the meeting by offering his or her own opinion but not that of the Board
  • Any statement presented to the committee, on behalf of the Board, must be supported by documentation from the Board
  • Liaisons are expected to report regularly to the Board and community any information that is related to all their committees' activities and recommendations
     

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.
