If you are interested in taking an active role in how the Cooperative works, many committees work together with the Board of Directors and Management. It is a great way to get involved in the community as well as meet people throughout Avon Hills. Many friendships and lifelong bonds are created by becoming actively involved in the decisions that are made for the Cooperative.
The Board of Directors is the governing body of the Avon Hills and makes the final decisions for the Cooperative based on Management and Committee recommendations. All members at Avon Hills are welcome to run for an open position on the Board of Directors at the annual meeting held every May or join a committee that may be of interest.
