Committees
 
Would you like to get involved in our Community, meet your neighbors and have fun? Read about volunteer opportunities on this page to find something that suits you.
 
There’s no right or wrong reason to volunteer. Some people volunteer because a particular cause is close to their heart, some people volunteer to stay fit and active, others to pass on or learn new skills. One benefit of volunteering is consistently true -- all volunteers make new friends and have fun.
 
Choose among many flexible opportunities to suit you and your lifestyle.  You decide whether to volunteer for a one off event, or an action day, or a few hours a week, or a few hours a month - it is up to you.
 
Volunteering is fun, satisfying and flexible.
 
Joining a Committee is easy
Login and Select Your Profile from the upper right corner of the screen next to your name. On the Your Profile Page, look on the left side under Welcome and Select Update Profile. Find the Committees Section.  In front of the Committee(s) names, you will find boxes. When you find the Committee(s) you'd like to join, Select the box (and this inserts an "x" in the box). Select SAVE at the bottom of the page. This will place you on the Committee Member List, and you will receive emails from the Committee Chair (or acting Chair) concerning Meeting Times and Dates.

Yearly Yard Sale
 
Hello neighbors, VGHA has been corresponding with our sister neighborhood Pointe West about our yearly neighborhood yard sale. The last couple of years our yard sale participation has been dropping. It has become apparent that many other entities are holding events at the same time as we hold our yearly yard sale. With that said, Pointe West’s board recommended that we have our combined yearly yard sale in February 2019, and we agreed.

New Signage for Village Green
 
Village Green has added another neighborhood information sign. After conversations with residents wishing to relocate this sign, we are moving it to a better location. Stay tuned!
 
 
 
VGHA Covenants and Deed Restrictions Document is now available for review and comment! 
 
These documents are for single family homes only, and do not affect any of the condo sections of VGHA. This draft has been reviewed and approved by our attorneys and has been reviewed by the VGHA Board of Directors.  There are some minor changes we want to make, however we would like to have input from our residents before we create a final draft.  Please review the document and let us know if you have any questions or any modifications to suggest.  The final draft will reflect the feedback received by the Board where possible.

VGHA Deed Restrictions Volunteers!
 
In order to go forward with the VGHA deed restriction requirements, we will need a LOT of volunteers to help us get documents signed and notarized.
If you are interested in seeing this go forward, and can volunteer some time, please come to our September meeting.
 
New Board Members Needed!
 
In addition, we have several board members who leave at the end of this calendar year.  We need volunteers to take up those positions.  Terms generally run for 3 years.   Again, if you are interested, please attend the board meeting.
We really would not like to see the association dissolve due to lack of interest by our residents, but that seems to be a possibility!

Village Green Committees Need Volunteers!

 

Village Green volunteers do a lot of good work through committees.  A lot of hours are donated to maintain our HOA.   Because we have so few volunteers, many do double duty, joining and working on multiple committees as well as board member duty. We need more help with pretty much every committee!  If you’re interested in participating in any committee activities, please contact the committee chair via email.  Email Addresses are listed below.  Please keep in mind that ALL help is appreciated.  If you have limited time, or limited interest, the committee’s will accept whatever you have to offer!  With thanks!

Our Social Committee is probably the most fun.  They coordinate all social activities for the HOA.  They organize our monthly First Monday Happy Hour, currently at Fratellos.  They research restaurants and organize monthly dine outs (excluding summer months) at places that have good food and can accommodate large crowds!  They organize the Annual Holiday Party, which was a great success last year!  All social activities are paid by those who attend.  50/50 raffles are held at most functions to pay for any additional costs, like the band at the party!

The Membership Committee welcomes new residents to the neighborhood and shares information about Village Green HOA and its activities.   Through this committee we let new neighbors know about what our dues are for, how they are used to beautify and maintain the common grounds, and what is on the current year’s work plan.  This committee is also responsible for routinely checking county register records for home and condo sales, gathering information about new owners and updating our records to reflect the change in ownership.

Effective in 2019, the Finance Committee/Treasurer is responsible for managing the budget and presenting the financials, prepared by the accounting firm, to the board.  They have oversight of the accounting firm’s duties, which include picking up the mail at the post office, scanning checks for backup, making the deposit, and posting the checks to the database on our website. The firm also updates member records as needed,  reconciles the accounts and prepares the monthly and annual financial statements.

The Communications Committee is responsible for our newsletter, our website content and any other communications to our neighbors.  They seek articles of interest which they edit.  They search for and coordinate with advertisers to help offset the cost of our newsletter.  They design the newsletter, get it out via email and snail mail to our residents.  They also seek articles for the website, and update the page content.

The Grounds Maintenance Committee is responsible for negotiating our landscaping and maintenance work done on the common grounds.  They assist with repair and maintenance of the sprinkler system and the electrical grid that operates the sprinklers.  They also oversee the landscaping of the common grounds.

The Neighborhood Standards Committee is responsible for sending letters out to those homeowners who are not in compliance with city code or with our voluntary standards as published on our website.  This can be difficult to do, as we prefer to help our neighbors rather than criticize.

The Deed Rewrite Committee has been responsible for all the research into our deed situation.  They have combed the old records, the state statutes, met with attorneys, all to figure out where we are, how we got here, and what to do next.  These folks have spent HUNDREDS of hours working hard to get to where we are today.

We also are in need of a new Webmaster, to maintain and update our website!

A big THANKS to all our volunteer committee members!

VGHA Website

Our new website has been up and running for a year now.  It has been great in helping us to maintain more accurate membership records and for allowing dues payments online.  In order to reduce administration costs last year, we stopped using (and paying for) an accounting firm to handle our dues payments.  We now rely on the website for online payments, and we use volunteers to process the payments received through the mail in the form of a check.  We use several volunteers for this process to allow for checks and balances.  The first year was a learning experience.  This year has gone much more smoothly.  Thanks to all who help us out by paying online!

One issue with the new website has been confusion about users and logging in to the site.  Property owners use the ‘login’ link.  Only advertisers use the ‘register’ link.  This website labels users by access levels.  Each property has a single ‘user1’ attached to each property, and all other household members are set up as a ‘user2’.   ‘User1’ is the level that can pay dues online and make reservations for social events.  There are several reasons for the system to be this way.    It doesn’t matter who in the household is the ‘user1’, and it doesn’t matter who in the household uses the ‘user1’ username/password login.  The only information being protected is name and address, and for some we have email addresses and phone numbers.  Generally speaking, everyone in your household knows this information so you don’t need to protect it from each other. 

So far, the only time we’ve needed to have accurate ‘user2’ information was for the Annual Holiday Party.  For this occasion, a caterer was hired so payment was needed in advance.  Reservations were made online and payment was also made online.  Reservations could only be made for those household members who were in the system.  If your spouse/partner is listed as a ‘user2’ then you were able to make a reservation that included that person, and make payment for that person. 

If you don’t know who in your household is entered on the site, login, go to your profile (link is in the upper right-hand corner) and check it out.  If you have questions or need help, contact the webmaster@vgha.org.

If you’re interested in working with the website we can always use volunteers!  Contact the webmaster!

Not receiving VGHA Emails? Don't miss out on important emails about the Newsletter, Dine-Out Events, Meetings and Dues Notices!
 
When an email is sent via a distribution email list, email providers sometimes send those emails to Junk/Spam instead of Inbox.
 
Several members sent emails to the webmaster because they didn't think they were on our email distribution list. When asked to look in their Junk/Spam folders, they found the emails in the VGHA emails. After adding @vgha.org to their Safe Senders list, the emails began showing up in their respective Inboxes.
 
If you haven't received email notices about the Newsletter or about the Dine-Outs, please check your Junk/Spam folder. And, to make sure VGHA emails show up in your Inbox in the future... 
 
Please add @vgha.org to your Email Safe Senders list.
