Additional Activities

Our Areas of Focus

Communication and Education

We will inform our Members as to what the Sea Pines POA is doing within the various work groups and task forces organized by the Board. We provide a forum for listening, learning and sharing information with and for our Members, including the activities and actions of other parties that impact residential property owners (e.g. – Town of Hilton Head, Beaufort County, State of South Carolina, CSA, ARB and The Sea Pines Resort). 

Monitor Third Party Activities Impacting Sea Pines

We will monitor comparable communities across the Low Country and beyond, to stay current on best practices and quality of life issues relevant to Sea Pines. We will follow the activities of the Town of Hilton Head, Beaufort County, State of South Carolina, CSA, ARB and The Sea Pines Resort that impact our community in order to identify, as early as possible, issues that may concern our residential property owner Members. 

Represent Residential Property Owner Priorities and Advocate Outcomes

We will provide opportunities for our Members to communicate with us at our in-person board meetings, via our web site, via electronic surveys and other means so our Members can share matters that are most important to them. We aggregate Member input and feedback, along with issues and opportunities we as a board see on the horizon, in order to prioritize which matters we undertake. Where appropriate, the Board will publish a public position and/or comment on pressing issues. 

Build Relationships and Partnerships

We are open to working with any single community stakeholder or group of stakeholders within Sea Pines where there is a shared commitment to positively impacting the quality of life for the majority of residential property owners within our community. 

Build Sense of Community and Engagement

We foster a sense of community in Sea Pines by providing an enlightening monthly newsletter for our Members and by hosting a variety of Member-only events like the Third-Tuesday Speaker Series and our Annual Spring Meeting/Gathering. We also provide a means of communication so our Members can promote events they are conducting that are of interest and importance to fellow Sea Pines POA Members.
