Elected member-volunteers make up our board of directors, district delegates. Committees consist of member-volunteers.

Duties & Responsibilities of Directors, Delegates, & Committee Members 

Board of Director Elections

  • HRCA's five-member Board is elected by the District Delegates. 
  • Elections for the open director seats are held each March. 
  • The Board of Directors serve two-year staggered terms. 

District Delegate Elections

  • Each Highlands Ranch district is represented by a Delegate. 
  • Delegates are elected by the district's homeowners to represent their neighborhood in association matters. 
  • Elections for even-numbered districts are held in even years, and odd-numbered districts elections are held in odd years, and vacant position elections are held annually. (Thus, most  delegates serve two-year terms.)
  • Delegate elections are in March at the Annual Meeting of Members.
