Pilot House Committees - Open Enrollment for Calendar 2023

Updated: Sep 22

The Annual Membership meeting of the Pilot House will be held next Tuesday, September 27 at 4:00 pm on the Dock under the Pergola, weather permitting. We have very good information to share with the community, as we have made significant progress over the past year. One of the topics at the board meeting will be a review of our current Pilot House Committees. We are very pleased with the high degree of community volunteer engagement that has grown in the past 12 months. As you will see from the current roster of committee volunteers listed below, we are especially fortunate to have 21 resident volunteers in the community that are currently engaged in various committee work. We are especially grateful for all the time that our volunteers have contributed over the past year. We look forward to offering a wider inclusion of community members in the upcoming year, as we have several new residents that joined us in the past year.

Excellent governance happens, when we have an excellent and engaged group of volunteers. While we are most fortunate to have Cavalier Land, as our management company, it still requires much engagement from the community to make it all happen. If you have an interest in participating on a committee within the Pilot House, please look through the list of committees below and send an email to president@norfolkpilothouse.com and let us know the committee or committees that you may have an interest. We have developed a document that outlines the guidelines, eligibility and responsibilities for any committee member and will provide that to you, when you send us your committee interest(s). Committees may have up to five members, where your energy and interest can best favor our community. We are interested in hearing back from all, who are interested in participating in the next year. If you are currently an existing committee member, please also reach out to let us know of your continued interest, as well as to let us know, if you have an interest to serve on another committee as well.


The Committee year begins January 1, 2023 and runs a full 12 months. The open enrollment opportunity will remain for the 6 week period beginning September 19 through October 31. To assist you, we are including a brief description of each committee and the general charter. Should you have questions about any committee, you may seek out the current chairperson, a member of the committee or ask any board member. We are most willing to share the story of each of the committees and the excellent work done by our volunteers.
