The Sudden Valley Community Association is supervised by a Board of eleven directors elected from among the membership.  The Board directs the General Manager and supporting staff to assist in that effort.  Board and Committee members serve as uncompensated volunteers for the benefit of all members. Volunteers to serve the Association are greatly appreciated.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS The Board of Directors is comprised of property owners whose primary duty is to manage the affairs of the community. Members are elected at the Annual General Meeting held the first Saturday in November, serving three-year terms, with various terms expiring each year.

The Board has four officers:  President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  For the current slate of officers and contact information please visit the Board Contact page, or call 734-6430.


ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING The Annual General Meeting of owners is held the first Saturday of November each year.  Business includes the election of members to the Board of Directors.  It is extremely important that you attend or vote on this meeting since directors are being elected and special issues and dues are discussed. These issues are detailed in the mail-in ballot which accompanies the Annual Meeting Notice, mailed by the first week of October.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETINGS The Board of Directors meets on the fourth Monday of each month from 7:00 -10:00 p.m. at the Multi Purpose Room.  Homeowners are welcome to attend all board meetings.  There are two (2) Homeowner Comment segments during the board meeting to enable members to make statements or ask questions of the Board.  If you wish to discuss an issue of business with the Board, it must be included on the Meeting Agenda.  The Meeting Agenda, when completed, will be available on the Board Meetings page or available at the administration office.  To be included on the Meeting Agenda, email the Board President.
