Board of Directors

Paradise Valley Estates is governed by a local, volunteer Board of Directors, which was formed in 1991. Members are nonresidents who are nominated to serve based on areas of expertise and, once elected, can serve unlimited three-year consecutive terms. The board also includes one, elected community resident with full voting privileges.

The board has a number of established committees including Finance & Investment Management, Construction & Engineering, Foundation and Health Care.
