2019 Board small

Run for the KICA Board

Board service is an opportunity for you to share your experience and ideas with the community, represent the interests of your fellow property owners, and be part of the process that steers the future of Kiawah.

Attend the Board Info Session

Find out about board service from the experts! If you’re interested in serving on KICA’s Board of Directors, join current and former directors for a happy hour and informational session Wednesday, Sept. 4 at Beachwalker Center from 4:30-5:30 p.m. More Info.

The deadline for candidate applications will be Friday, Oct 4.

Applications are directed to the Nominating Committee for an objective evaluation, including considerations for board diversity and specific skill set needs. However, any KICA member may run for board service by submitting this application, which includes pertinent information and a statement of focus. These statements will be published along with other election materials.

Diverse board leadership is vital to the continued success of our Kiawah community, and the board thanks you in advance for your interest in making an impact on the future of the island.
