Meet POA Board candidates at upcoming forums


The “Meet the Candidates” and “Speak to the Candidates” forums provide residents with an opportunity to learn more about the candidates running for POA Board of Directors and where they stand on POA related issues.

The first forum will be held at the Senior Center on April 8 at 10 a.m. This forum is sponsored by the Senior Work Group. Seating is limited, attendees should arrive early.

The fourth annual “Speak to the Candidates” will be held on April 10 at 7 p.m. in the Holiday Bay Room at the Lodge. This forum is sponsored by 25 Canyon Lake clubs and organizations.
