Vistoso Community Association is going Green!

Become a Board Member

The deadline to receive applications and bios is January 14, 2022. There are 2 single family seats, 1 other-than single family, and 1 commercial seat available. The election results will be announced at the Annual Meeting.

An Annual Meeting information packet will be mailed out to all property owners on February 25, 2022. The Board is requesting that all homeowners vote electronically to reduce the need for handling paper ballots, and ensure safety for staff members. If you do not have access to a computer, a voting station will be set up in the HOA office where residents can make an appointment to vote. FirstService Residential staff will be available to help you access the IVOTENOW website. If you have any concerns, please reach out to staff at 520-354-2729.

Being a volunteer on the Board of Directors requires dedicated commitment and hard work. Board members are encouraged to be out in the community and review proposed projects in the community. Board members are required to review the agenda packet prior to meetings. There are often additional work study sessions on large or challenging projects. General and Executive Session Board Meetings normally run 6-8 hours per month, not including your personal prep time. Each board member is asked to participate on a standing committee, which is a 2-3 hour commitment per month. The average time commitment for a Board member is roughly 10-20 hours per month. If elected as an officer, that time commitment can increase significantly.

Board members have an important responsibility to focus on issues that face the entire membership and be an essential voice in the community. It is a rewarding experience to see the results of collective hard work. We are also currently accepting applications for the 2022 Nomination and Election Committee appointment. The Board of Directors will appoint the Election 2023 Nomination Committee at the February Board meeting, as required by the governing documents. Please consider submitting a committee volunteer application today to join this committee that is active November through February – a four month commitment!

Additional information on the Annual Meeting will be available soon on https://ranchovistosohoa.com/el ection-2022/
