I encourage all
residents to consider volunteering to be an ORHA
Director. I can tell you without hesitation that it
has been very personally fulfilling to me for almost 3
years. Being your President for half of that time has
allowed me to influence aspects of how ORHA attempts
to meet members needs. I have been very fortunate to
work with Directors who really care about Oak Run and
Caring and giving is what it is all about. There is
some time involved in meetings and talking with
residents but the trade-off is worth it. You are
elected for only a two year term and can't serve more
than 2 consecutive terms without rotating off the
There are two basic requirements. First, a Director is
expected to attend 3 meetings; per month. More
importantly the Bylaws state that a Director should
miss no more than 3 of the monthly General meetings
per year. Second, each Director must serve as Director
on Duty (DOD) for one week out of each eight week
period during the year. The DOD opens the sound rooms
and kitchens when a club requests them and some of the
time turns on the sound systems and get microphones
ready for use. Every Director is fully trained by
experienced Directors on this easy part of the task.
On average during my weeks as DOD I will devote about
2-3 hours each week doing what is needed.
So what's not to love
about this? Call any Director and tell them you are
interested in being in the know in Oak Run and giving
back to the community we all love.
Waddell, ORHA President, 2010 and 2011
the most important people within the Homeowners
Association are the Neighborhood Reps. They are the
liaison between the residents of their neighborhood and
the ORHA Board and Oak Run Associates, Ltd. Upon assuming their position each Rep
receives a booklet from the Board containing all the
information necessary to perform their duties.
Reps attend one meeting a month with the ORHA Board. At
this meeting they communicate the views and desires of
the their residents, discuss matters of mutual interest
and become knowledgeable of business conducted by the
Board. They will also represent their neighborhood at
the monthly ORHA General Meeting. Often times Reps will
serve, if needed, on committees formed by the Board.
Reps greet new residents with a welcome packet and
encourage all their residents to uphold the rules and
regulations for use of the recreational facilities and
to abide by the covenants and deed restrictions for
their homesite. They deliver informational material
authorized by the Board, such as the monthly Oak Run
Newsletter, and assist in the distribution of the annual
Oak Run Community Directory (phone book).
Many Reps will go beyond their usual duties, mentioned
above, and arrange or assist with social and other
activities within their neighborhood. They often keep an
eye on homes of residents who travel and aid residents
who are home bound because of illness or injury. They
encourage their residents to participate in the many
activities occurring throughout the year within the
Neighborhood Reps are
a vital link between homeowners and management in Oak
Run. They are needed by all, appreciated by most and
heroes to many. Come forward ... join their ranks.
