Executive Board

The River Valley Ranch Master Association (RVRMA) Executive Board of Directors consists of seven elected volunteers who donate their time and service to our community. In the words of current RVRMA Board President, Scott Darling:

"We are elected volunteers. We are committed to protecting and enhancing our property, our community and the beauty that surrounds us. Our homeowners should feel a sense of pride that comes with the comfort of “knowing they are home” when they drive into RVR.

As board members, we provide oversight and direction to ensure the love and care of our facilities, ranch house, our common area grounds and the events and programs meet the needs of our homeowners.

Doing this requires that we attract, motivate and retain a high caliber staff and giving them the tools and resources to meet those needs. We work with the staff to help solve problems as needed and to clarify policies or make strategic decisions that promote the betterment of our community all while making sure we take the utmost care in cost management."
