Civic Association Purpose and Officers

Elk Forest Civic Association

Purpose of Your Civic Association
The Elk Forest Civic Association is comprised of residents working together to improve the community and manage concerns common to all residents of Elk Forest.  Officers volunteer their time to consider issues and to execute decisions that improve the quality of life in the community.  The EFCA is NOT a homeowners’ association,  but a civic association.  Membership is voluntary and open to all property owners in Elk forest.  You do need to be a paid-in-full household to be able to vote on issues that come up for a vote at our public meetings.  Because of the voluntary nature of the Association, the annual $85 dues (dues and mosquito abatement fee) are not formally levied on homeowners, but annually requested.  If all residents do their small part by joining, volunteering and contributing, the Civic Association will continue to have a positive and cost effective impat on our elk forest Community!

Board Position Processes
As board positions pass from person to person, it is useful to have a process that makes this transition easier and error free (as much as we can).  We currently have two in place for the Treasurer and Web Master.
