Board Members
 
 
Our MISSION as a Board is to make Parkside a highly desirable place to live
while enhancing property value through:

• Providing best in class facilities and grounds that are safe and secure for
our residents.
• Making fiscally responsible decisions in the operations of the community.
• Making long-term, value-driven investment decisions.
• Providing a transparent decision making process that is inclusive, timely,
and customer-service oriented.
• Promoting a sense of community and reinforcing Parkside’s role as a leader
in the West End.
 
Parkside at Alexandria is governed by a board of directors. Each member of the board is elected to a specific term by the association members. Board members typically take lead responsibility to oversee and address various operational issues (e.g.., maintenance, finances, security, architectural review, etc.). In addition, Committees and Task Forces can be formed as necessary to address special topics.
