From the President, Oct. 2018: WCA Forms Swim Search Committee

At the Sept. 6 board meeting the Westchase Community Association (WCA) Board of Directors agreed to form a “Swim Program Due Diligence” Search Committee.

The purpose of this committee is to conduct a thorough, unbiased, systematic and scientific search for the swim program entity that best fits Westchase needs.

Such committees are typically short term, project-oriented committees made up of three homeowner volunteers and one board member. They have a start date, an end date and a deliverable result.

At the Oct 11 board meeting, we will be appointing the entire membership of that committee. I have already received unsolicited offers to serve on that committee. In the interest of fairness, I am throwing the offer open here to any volunteers willing to serve on that committee.

There are some requirements.

(a) You must be a member of the Westchase Community Association
(b) You must pledge to remain unbiased and dispassionate throughout the process
(c) You must agree that it is not the purpose of the committee to fire or rehire anyone
(d) You must be able to commit many hours of hard work, including days and evenings
(e) You must pledge to keep your work confidential so as not to discredit the result (unless you as a committee decide otherwise).

We will evaluate each of the candidates in an open forum on Oct. 11, then appoint all four participants at that time. If you wish to serve, please send an email stating your interest along with your bio to

The Westchase tennis charity event will also be on the Oct.11 agenda for discussion as will the creation of a new position, that of social media director. This will be a board member in charge of social media communications.  We will also be talking about the recommendations the association adopt a “sunshine rule.”

We look forward to seeing you there.  It might be a long night, so please plan accordingly. Thank you for reading.

By Ruben Collazo, WCA President
