COMMITTEES

Emerald Pointe Committees are volunteer-based and are in place to assist the Board of Directors in conducting the business, maintenance and social activities of the resort.  Each Committee usually consists of a Chairperson and a number of Committee Members, who report to the Board of Directors. Committees make recommendations to the Board. All decisions are made by the Board with the exception of decisions made by the Hearing Committee, which are binding on the Board.  You may contact each committee chairperson by clicking on their name.

The Hearing Committee is charged with hearing both sides of the appeal and making a final decision on the appeal, according to Emerald Pointe RV Resort's CC&Rs and Rules & Regulations.  The appeal decision is decided by a vote of the five members (Chairperson only votes if there are only four members present), after hearing both sides and making their decisions in accordance with our governing documents.  Each of the five members casts a silent vote so no one knows how they voted.  The decision of this Committee is the final decision of the appeal.
