Village Leadership

The Village Council is comprised of a team of volunteers dedicated to driving the Village Without Walls strategic direction and is elected each year by the Village Members. The officers of the Village (Chair, Secretary, Treasurer) are elected by the Council members.
Members of the Village Council include functional team leads and others who specialize in specific areas of value to our Village. The functional team leads bring the perspective of the day-to-day Village operations to the Village Council. This includes coordination of social, cultural and educational events, newsletter production, marketing, website management and technical support, as well as direct member services and maintaining the recommended vendors lists.

Village Council


The Village Council meets on the 2nd Tuesday each month.  If you would like to contact a Village Council member or attend a meeting, send us an email at and your question will be forwarded to the appropriate person.
