Why I Joined the Board

As the onsite manager of an age restricted HOA, I saw and experienced first hand the many issues that seniors had to deal with. They are often the forgotten members of society and suffer in silence. By being on the Board of ELA I believe that in some small way I can assist them in gaining a better life for their remaining years.
