The Anthem Community Council is currently recruiting residents to serve as volunteer members of the following committees.
Fiscal and Resource Management Committee
Residents interested in serving in a voluntary role with the Fiscal and Resource Management Committee (FaRM) should be business professionals with a strong background in one/more of the following: accounting, finance, executive management, operations management, information technologies, insurance or law.
FaRM members make policy recommendations that will provide financial benefit to Anthem. The Committee reviews the annual budget and provides financial advice to make sure the community's financial position remains strong and operates in a responsible manner.
The scope of the Utilities Panel activities includes the public utilities serving Anthem – water, wastewater, electric and natural gas. Voluntary committee members work closely with CEO and Council staff to proactively study, recommend and (upon approval by the Board) implement positions, policies and actions deemed necessary to ensure and/or improve the quality, availability and cost of public utilities for residents and property owners. Members may represent the community regarding public utility-related legislative matters and at regulatory proceedings.
Residents interested in serving on the Utilities panel should have accounting and financial skills (especially as they relate to public and private utilities) and the ability to:
- Analyze complex utility accounting processes;
- Analyze and challenge testimony from other parties to a case, including the exhibits and schedules that parties may submit in support of their testimony;
- Communicate difficult topics in a manner that is understood by Anthem residents; and
- Prepare and deliver testimony and arguments in a formal hearing (e.g. court proceeding) to support Anthem's position.
Anthem Neighborhood Watch (ANW)
The ACC seeks a volunteer Chairperson to lead the Anthem Neighborhood Watch (ANW) Committee. ANW is a community-based organization of residents working in cooperation with the ACC and law enforcement agencies to educate residents about ways to reduce crime in Anthem. The Chairperson will often be the face and voice of ANW and will lead meetings, meet with block and neighborhood captains, address the ACC Board (as needed) and participate in special events.
