Four Seats Open in Sept. 11 WCA Board of Directors Election

Have you considered serving your Westchase community as a board member?

On Sept. 11, 2018, the election of four Westchase Community Association (WCA) Board of Directors seats will take place at the Westchase Swim and Tennis Center. Voting members (VMs) will elect the new directors, each of whom is to serve two-year terms. Current WCA directors whose terms expire this year are Brian Ross, Keith Heinemann, Forrest Baumhover and Ruben Collazo.

The WCA Board of Directors is responsible for compliance with all deed restrictions, maintaining both of our swim and tennis centers, and setting WCA policies. Every board member is a volunteer. More detailed descriptions of the board’s role may be found in the Government Primer at the back of WOW or by calling the WCA office at 926-6404.

Any homeowner is eligible to serve and nominate himself or herself, or to nominate another resident they believe would be a good addition to the board. Although not required, experience in Westchase governance, such as serving as a voting member or alternate, as a WCA committee member, or on a sub-association board, is helpful background for board membership.

Florida statutes require new board members to complete a form stating that they have read the association’s Declaration of Covenants, Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws and current written rules and policies. They also commit to upholding such documents and policies to the best of their ability and to discharge their fiduciary responsibilities to the WCA members in good faith at all times.

If you are interested in WCA Board membership, please prepare a short narrative biography of approximately 250 words for the VMs to review and email it with a high resolution photo to Candidates’ photos and biographies, written in narrative form rather than resume form, will be printed in the September WOW if received by the Aug. 10 deadline. Nominations from the floor will also be accepted at the Sept. 11 meeting.

Feel free to reach the WCA office at 926-6404 or or contact Nominating Committee Chair Rick Goldstein at, with any questions. Rick may also be reached at (813) 920-6470.
