There are numerous ways to get involved and give back to the community:
Neighborhood Voting Member
Every year, residents are invited to volunteer as a Neighborhood Voting Member (NVM) to elect the Association’s Board of Directors and decide other Association matters requiring a membership vote. Applications become available Oct. 1. For more information, email email@example.com or click here.
Learn more about the community’s governance and operations. Residents who participate are better prepared to serve in roles, such as committee member, focus group participant, outreach ambassador, Neighborhood Voting Member or on the Ranch Association or Community Council Board of Directors.
The DC Ranch Leadership Academy allows residents to meet others in a collaborative, learning format and establish positive, long-term working relationships. Each session includes classroom-style instruction and an interactive segment to problem-solve and work collectively. Applications for 2021 are now closed.
