Board Committees are an important opportunity for Canyon Lake POA members to become involved in the Canyon Lake POA's on-going activities. The Canyon Lake POA's Committees are comprised of representative members of the community. Committees provide an important "citizen oversight" function ensuring that the members voices are heard on a number of important topics such as long-range planning, budget review and forecasting, recreational needs including the golf course, member appeals regarding citations, issues relating to the Estates and with ensuring that Planning & Compliance requirements are adhered to.
There are currently seven Standing Committees, three Ad-Hoc Committees, and two Work Groups. Please visit the Committees Page for a complete description of each committee. Every Canyon Lake POA Committee meeting is open, allowing any member to attend.
Understanding the importance that the Committees have within the community, the Board of Directors updated the Committee Policy in July 2020 to reflect this philosophy. Prior to that time, the Committees reported through various Staff Liaisons to the General Manager and via the General Manager to the Board. The current Board determined that the Committees should report directly to the Board Liaison. The Board Liaison became responsible for providing information and updates directly to the entire Board, ensuring that the Committees' voices are heard.
Additionally, the current Board of Directors modified the Committee Policy to allow for the appointment of Sub-Associates. In the past, only Prime and Associate Members could volunteer. Realizing that there was a missed opportunity for different voices to be heard, the current Board made the change. This Board defined one of the core values and guiding principles of the Board to be a "family-oriented culture to match a wide-ranging demographic". This policy change allows for a previously overlooked demographic, such as our younger members, to be represented if they wanted to volunteer.
As we work to transition to meet our diverse community's needs, Committees are the best way to communicate your wishes for our community as we move forward. Committee member applications are accepted anytime. If there is room on the committee for members or alternates, those applications are acted on immediately. If not, they are held for consideration when openings occur.
