Washington Homes Association Board of Directors and Committee Responsibilities
This is a brief overview of the structure of the WHA Board of Directors and duties for each role. The Board of Directors is elected at the WHA Annual Meeting to a three year term. If desired, a Board member can renew their term, however must be reelected. There are no term limits set forth in the covenants. Typically roles are decided upon at the first Board meeting following the annual meeting (usually in November), if desired, and responsibilities are then delegated and/or renegotiated. Please note that the committees change yearly based on the needs of the neighborhood so all committees may not be currently represented.
