Hilton Head Plantation POA Volunteer Opportunities
There are plenty of ways to get involved in your community as a volunteer. One of those ways is to join a HHPPOA committee.
Call (843) 681-8800 or e-mail us at email@example.com for more information on how to join a committee, and for other volunteer opportunities in your community.
The HHPPOA committee system depends on you. This very active committee system, operating in an advisory capacity to the HHPPOA Board of Directors, relies on civic-minded, interested property owners volunteering their time, talent, and energy to sit on HHPPOA committees and advise the Board on matters of concern to the community. Most committees are comprised of six members plus a Board member who serves as Chair.
Following is a description of the HHPPOA committees and their functions. To contact a HHPPOA staff person about one of the following committees, send an e-mail to the appropriate staffer (see Contact Us button at left). A printable Interest Form for POA Committees is located in the Documents section of our Website.
