Blue Jordan Forest Volunteers
The importance of volunteering can’t be overstated. It builds social bonds, reduces isolation, provides the satisfaction of accomplishment, decreases feelings of powerlessness, gives residents a sense of control, and makes our community association vibrant and thriving as a place to live. This is the foundation for building a sense of community. Our association would have a hard time existing without our resident volunteers; they’re the lifeblood of our community.
Successful communities—those where residents are united by common goals and interests—are created by a broad base of active volunteers. This volunteer base brings essential diversity to our association through their unique view points, opinions, ideas, talents and contributions. The greater the number of people who participate in the our community, the better the decision making and the smaller the workload for everyone involved. If we foster this type of atmosphere within our community, people will be less likely to burn out.
Committees are the backbone of many successful associations. Organizing and supporting committees is an essential role of the board, and an excellent way to promote volunteerism.
