Committees & Task Forces

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.
