SCHOA Governance

Sun City is the nation’s very first master-planned, active-adult retirement community, commonly referred to as the City of Volunteers. The community opened to the public on January 1, 1960. SCHOA, is a non-profit organization serving the interests of Sun City since 1963.

Sun City is an unincorporated area which means that there is no city government, mayor or staff to address the needs of the community.  SCHOA is the quasi-governmental entity that acts as a vehicle for communicating those community needs and works to address and resolve them.

SCHOA is led by an elected volunteer Board of Directors and operates under the leadership of the General Manager. Among the many responsibilities of SCHOA and the Board of Directors, perhaps none is more important than adhering to the SCHOA Mission, and compliance with the SCHOA CC&Rs which includes protecting the community age overlay.

The Board of Directors generally meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month (with the exception of July and August) to conduct the business of the Association. These meetings are open to Sun City residents and participation is both welcomed and encouraged.
