Committees are an important part of the administration of the Master Association and Metropolitan District. Some are limited in the number of members; others are open to as many residents as are interested in volunteering. In addition, the Boards appoint a Task Force when they determine that a special topic warrants. A Committee is ongoing and serves to advise the Boards, and in specific tasks, act on behalf of the Boards. A Task Force is formed to work on a defined project. For the current schedule of committee and task force meetings, see the Community Calendar.

The Community Administrator is the staff liaison for this Committee. For more information contact Victoria DeSair at 303-979-1876 ext. 122 or victoriad@kcranch.org.
