Believe it or not, nominations are now open for the 2019 Killearn Lakes Plantation HOA Board of Directors election. Did you know that the Killearn Lakes Board of Directors are elected annually? With almost 90 homes sold just this year, now is the perfect time to encourage residents to get involved in our Association. While it is advantageous to have some continuity and knowledge of history on the board, it is healthy and beneficial for a Board to have new members to serve, learn and share fresh ideas on how to make our community better.

Serving on the Board may not be what you imagined if you have never served. It is not a room full of stuffy old men that won't listen to new ideas. In fact, I have found it to be an open-minded group, eager to hear what the community wants and needs, a diverse group of individuals who have set aside their own personal agendas to work together for the common good.

Young families, new residents, as well as long-time residents, can benefit by giving back to their community, thereby investing in themselves. Serving with the other Board Members will help you learn leadership skills, how to run an effective meeting, collaborate as a team, and it will help build your resume.

We all have an idea of what we think the perfect neighborhood is, and what an Association should be. If yours falls short of that vision, you can achieve more of your expectations sooner by working with your neighbors. By serving on the board, you are in a better position to have a positive influence, allowing you the opportunity to be creative as the board devises solution plans and different approaches to correct problems and to implement them in the community.

Serving your neighborhood does not have to be boring; you will have fun experiences, meet your neighbors and city officials and gain a better understanding of the laws. There are lots of different opportunities to learn new things, help others and yourself, and meet new people in your community. I find it an honor to serve on our board with some extraordinary people and have even run into residents who thank us for serving. Board of Directors Nomination Form PDF 399 KB
