About the Tahoe Donner Board of Directors

Tahoe Donner Association is a self–directed common interest development governed by a five-member board of directors; each director is elected for a three-year term. The board governs the financial management and general operation of the association. The annual budget of the association, including revenue, expenses, annual assessments, and required reserve funds are in excess of $18.5 million per year. Operations include the physical management and maintenance of the association’s common areas, operation of the resort amenities, and enforcement of the land-use restrictions and architectural standards that both create and maintain the unique character of Tahoe Donner. Important ongoing business activities include management of the 2030 General Plan, fiscal monitoring of the association’s amenities, approval of the annual budget (operating and reserves), and utilization of open spaces.

Qualifications for Serving on the Board of Directors

A candidate must: 1) Be an owner of at least a 25 percent interest in a Tahoe Donner residential property, 2) Be in good standing with the association (all assessments paid and not subject to any suspension of membership privileges). Owners are not eligible if a co-owner of their Tahoe Donner property is currently serving on the board, they are employees of the association or if they have held two consecutive terms of office on the board. There is NO requirement that owners be full-time or part-time residents.
