Do you love your neighborhood? Do you wish that there was more you could do to take an active role in making Underwood Hills an even more amazing place to live?

Well you’re in luck, because the UHNA elections are right around the corner. The following positions are open to all who are interested. While one person is officially elected for each position, we encourage people to get involved in the committees, as many of the steering committee positions are best handled by a few people.  With a little time from some great neighbors, we can continue to ensure Underwood Hills is a great place to live!
