Shown above is the 2011 POA board of directors during the July 21, 2011 meeting. This nine-member board serves as the governing body of the Governors Village Property Owners Association (POA). Guided by a set of rules, or bylaws, this group donates many hours of dedicated service to improving the community.

The POA board is elected by the community’s homeowners during the annual meeting, usually held in November. Each neighborhood has one director seat, and there are three at large directors who can be from any of the neighborhoods. Three seats come up for election every year. Board members elect officers at the first board of directors meeting each year.

Here are the board of directors listed with their offices, director positions, committee liaison duties and term-ending date:

  • Debbi Nichols, President, At Large Director, Architecture Liaison (2012)
