There are lots of ways to get involved with your community. The first step is becoming a member for only $20 per year. You must live in the Geographical area.
We can also always use additional funding to increase our ability to help neighbors, hold additional events and communications capabilities.
Attend a Meeting: Board Meetings are held every month except July, typically on the 4th Monday at 7:00 PM, with occasional changes. We try to stream them on Facebook Live and via zoom as well. You can attend a meeting by showing up at in person or emailing email@example.com to get the zoom meeting link for the month.
There are many ways to help out and a number of teams you can join that specialize at various tasks that help serve our neighbors. Take a look at most of them here.
Do you have the talents and skills for policy, administration, finance, volunteer organizing and creating a vision? Our board focuses on creating a professional image and inclusive vision for our community members. If this is for you, maybe running for an open board seat is for you in October. Contact us to learn about elections and commitments.
The events team is divided into different subgroups for each event. If there is a particular event you are interested in helping with, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org This team is one of the most active in the community and has 75 years of tradition to keep up. Each event takes anywhere from 3 – 15 volunteers.
This committee coordinates with different safety services within our county including Police, Sheriffs, Fire Departments, First Responders and organizes the Park gate opening and closings. This committee also organizes the community watch which is focused on observing and reporting safety concerns, not engaging, in any form of enforcement.
The New Neighbor Welcoming Team is responsible for identifying new neighbors moving in and connecting them with MVACA as well as their local subdivision, county and state services as well as any local businesses a typical resident will need.
The Athletics Committee is involved in managing the annual requirements to keep the youth athletics program active. This committee operates on its own budget and is semi-independent of other committees.
The Land Management and Community Appeal Team manages the landscaping of our public spaces such as the Mago Vista Sign area at College Parkway and the Jones Station Gardens. They help organize clean up days around the community and this committee also helps to speak for the concerns surrounding dilapidated properties, environmental concerns and helps subdivisions with their water access and park areas.
Advocacy and Outreach Team: In order to make all the other committees function, we need to reach out to our neighbors and recruit volunteers. Additionally, we help to speak up for concerns of local residents at the county and state government levels when appropriate and help bring awareness to community diversity.
