The Quail Valley Fund is the HOA that services most of Quail Valley. The Fund has 7 directors, and two of those positions are up for election this year. As part of that process, Quail Valley Proud hosts a “Meet the Candidates” night, allowing Fund homeowners to ask questions of the candidates for the two open Board positions.

Nicholas is a member of the exchange club of Missouri City and a standing committee member of the Quail Valley Swim Team, the Dolphins. He is also an active volunteer foe the Quail Valley Proud community events organization and is actively interested in the history and preservation of the QV ‘North Pole Village’ tradition on Boca Raton Court. Together, with his family, he brought neighbors together in bringing back the magical holiday lights to Boca Raton Drive, as they were 30 years ago.

He will openly engage with all members of the Quail Valley neighborhood on issues important to them. Nicholas brings with him a new perspective on the following topics: (1) enriching our QV Fund Newsletter; (2) improving upon the short/long-term budget; (3) engaging with the community at large to find financially viable tenant/purposes for the unused office space at the QV Fund’s Office (providing a return on the Board of Trustees’ investment for the QV community); (4) implementing a rotation of presentations about topics important to members; and (5) building a larger/more engaged alliance with members.

The format we follow starts with each candidate making a brief introduction, followed by some standard questions asked by the Quail Valley Proud moderator. From there we will open the floor to questions from the audience. We will limit answers to conserve time.
This year we will attempt to offer this forum virtually for those that do not want to attend in person. Questions can be asked through the chat function on line.
Information about the on-line portion of the event will be added here when available.
