Residents have the opportunity to get involved in many aspects of the community by volunteering to serve on committees. Committee members meet together regularly to discuss areas of concern within their jurisdiction, researching possible solutions and making suggestions to the POA’s Board of Directors for changes and/or improvements. Many of the decisions made by the POA board and staff are a direct result of the committees’ research and recommendations.
Committee applications are available at the POA office and on the POA’s website at canyonlakepoa.com.
Committee members are appointed by the POA’s Board of Directors. Board members serve as liaisons on committees.
