What importance service does the BVCC Operations Board provide to the Burgundy Village Community?  
The Burgundy Village Community Center is partially funded by a special tax assessment by homeowners in Burgundy Village as well as by rental fees. The Operation Board considers the needs of the community in determining priority use for the center and in setting rental fees. BVCC has been rented to celebrate birthdays, wedding anniversaries, host family reunions, as well as host exercise classes, religious services and is available upon request and approval, rent-free for community events. 

What are the time commitments for serving on the BVCC Operations Board?  
The Operations Board members are elected for a 3-year term. The Operation Board meets three or four times a year. In between these meetings, the Operations Board typically communicates and reviews information over email, as needed.  

Why should I serve? 
This is a wonderful way to give back directly to your neighborhood and community so everyone can enjoy the Community Center. Good financial management of the Community Center also helps keep the special tax assessment from increasing too much.
