s a director for the Condo Owners Association here in Sun City, I have found the volunteer role very rewarding and interesting.
I am the chairwoman of my own association and familiar with the challenges of running an association. It is, in fact, like running a small business along with the challenges and rewards of working with my neighbors as we strive to keep our association a place in which we can all be proud and safe.
Becoming a director at the COA not only has helped me with my own association, but has allowed me to help so many others. Being on a board of an association is no easy task and the COA recognizes that and works to support many boards with understanding both the business side of running their association and the Arizona laws that govern associations in the Arizona Condominium Act.
Training was incredibly supportive in both understanding the Arizona Condominium Act and how it is applied to shadowing experienced directors as they advise on simple to complex issues associations face today. We also teach classes on all kinds of topics on running a successful association and one of my most favorite parts of this role.
As a retired hospital administrator, it also allows me to use my people management skills and business skills to give back to my community. It also keeps my mind stimulated and allows me to interact with so many of you — it’s truly a win-win for me and hopefully for the community that I love and enjoy.
If you are interested in becoming a director, please contact our president, Sue Clark. She can be reached at 509-200-0729.
Penny Walker is a member of the Condo Owners Association of Sun City.
