2017 FHHO Trustee Election
Each year the members of FHHO meet to elect our board of trustees, who in turn appoint an executive committee comprised of area residents to manage the association. The board provides governance and fiduciary oversight, sets policy, and assesses FHHO's overall performance. We are extremely grateful for their dedication and contribution to our work. These volunteers make time in their busy schedules for Forest Hill and donate hundreds of hours of their efforts without compensation.
The people listed on the 2017 ballot have nominated themselves for election to the FHHO board of trustees. You can read more about each nominee by clicking on their name below. And, for your information, the trustee duties are listed at the bottom of this page.

FHHO trustee duties:
Deliver welcome packets
Welcome packets are provided by the Membership Chair. The trustee is expected to notify FHHO of any new residents, acquire a packet, and deliver it in person to the new resident. The trustee is expected to point out the dues solicitation, and speak to the positive impact the organization is making to Forest Hill.
Discuss FHHO with residents and solicit support
We currently see resident financial participation approaching 25%. We need trustee help to solicit donations from non-participating members (residents).
Support FHHO goals and objectives
Once we have established the priorities and goals for 2017, which will be driven by trustee input and executive direction, trustees are expected to support these efforts through volunteerism and encouraging neighborhood involvement.
Report standards violations
The standards team needs trustee help to identify problems or changes related to roofing, siding, windows, gutters, and yard maintenance.
Represent members to the Executive Committee
The Executive Committee meets monthly. All trustees are welcome to attend. If not able to attend, they are expected to communicate any issues to the Chairman of the Board.
Attend 2 bi-annual trustee meetings
The spring meeting is generally focused on agenda setting for the year, while the fall meeting is generally when executive elections are held.
Engage street for block parties
Social interaction is critical to building a strong community. FHHO would like every block to host an annual block party. FHHO’s social and street club chair will help trustees establish a block party “team”, led by street trustees.
In addition, every trustee is expected to join an existing committee, or with the approval of the executive committee, form a new committee, or work on a special project.
