Our Community

Westheimer Lakes is more than a subdivision; it’s a community. All residents are encourages to get involved with the community either in elected positions, serving on committees, arrange a club or a group, or by simply attending events and using the facilities. Here are some ways to get involved.

Advisory Board

The POA Board of Directors is supported by a non-voting volunteer Advisory Board of up to six members. Advisory Board members have unfettered access to the Board of Directors and they work closely together to advise and to influence the management of the community. Advisory Board members also act as voices of the residents so the Board of Directors can govern in the best interest of the whole community. Advisory Board members have access to all community documents except personal resident and employee information.

Whilst serving on the Advisory Board is not required before volunteering as a candidate for the POA Board of Directors, it is a great environment to learn how to manage a large community and how to use the various tools.

All Advisory Board candidates must be a property owner of record who are in good standing with the community. Advisory Board members are elected at the annual general meeting and must attend at least half of the board meetings during their one-year tenure.

Please contact Iyesha ( if you are a resident that would like to volunteer for any committee listed below.
