BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Association's Board of Directors is made up 7 homeowners that volunteer their time for the administration of the affairs of the Association to include protecting and enhancing the assets of the community. The Association prides itself on promoting the concept of community and neighbor connectedness. 

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month with the exception of adjustments made during the holidays. 


"Mike, Lucy and I have lived in Spectrum for almost 13 years now. I have had the pleasure of serving on the Spectrum at Val Vista board for the past 4 years. This last year I served as the Board President.  I also served on the Spectrum Common Area Use Committee which successfully drafted our Common Area Use Policy and approved the usage signs throughout the community. I am a local real estate agent and my 13 years of real estate background have been helpful in some of my community decisions on the board. As a member of the board, I strive to improve our property values within our community and maintain our affordable HOA fees. "

"I also feel it is important to solicit homeowner input on various HOA discussion items, so I represent the homeowners on board decisions. We completed a marketing branding project last year and our successful budgeting process gave us the opportunity to put some money back into our neighborhood with new granite, plants, and trees. I am passionate about our community and will strive to make Spectrum a great place to live."

Kari Hansen, Bel Aire Resident, 13 years
PRESIDENT

"I have very much appreciated serving my community over the last several years. Being on the board allows me to focus on the things that will help our neighborhood continue to be the safe, engaging and beautiful place that we all enjoy. I travel quite a bit and I must say that I am constantly reminded as to how good we have it here in our own little corner in Gilbert, AZ.
I am dedicated to protecting all of those things that make Spectrum one of the best places to live in the U.S. I look forward to continuing to serve all of you."
 
Joel Coen, Charisma Resident, 7 years
Vice President
"I am a CPA who works for an attorney. My wife and I live in the Villages at Spectrum and I have served on the Spectrum HOA Board for 5 years, serving as the Treasurer for 4. In the past I have served on the planning commission in Novi, Michigan, and I currently serve on the Finance Council for Saint Anne Catholic Church."
 
Eric Schaefer, Villages Resident, 10 years
TREASURER
"I have lived in the Spectrum at Val Vista Community for fourteen years, am a busy working mom to four children, and have an incredibly supportive husband. All my children have attended Spectrum Elementary, with the oldest now a junior in college, and the other three in 4th, 3rd and 1st grades. 
As a longtime communications professional, starting in a television newsroom in the mid-‘90s to various public relations and marketing positions, I am currently the Vice President of Marketing, Communications & Events at the Phoenix Zoo."
"I see Spectrum at Val Vista to be one of the most desirable and appealing neighborhoods in the East Valley and love to use my deep-rooted passion for this community and my business expertise to the benefit of the current HOA as a Board member."
 
Linda Hardwick, Renaissance Resident, 14 years.
Secretary
"My name is Jason Hoppal, and I am an elementary school teacher for the Chandler Unified School District. I have a wonderful wife who is also an elementary school teacher and have four children ranging from 3 to 16. Over the years I have taken on many leadership roles at my school and our district. I was chosen as the AAA staff member of the year for my school. I have been a full-time resident in Spectrum since 2008. Spectrum will be my home for many years to come. I would love the opportunity to give back to the community. Taking on this leadership role will allow me to continue Spectrum’s reputation of being a great community to call home. "
 
Jason Hoppal, Silverado Resident, 13 years
Director

"Over the years, I have served on numerous boards, councils, and committees. I have always been involved in my community and feel like I have a lot to contribute. My wife Tracy and I lived in Central Phoenix in the same home for 41 years. We moved to Spectrum in July of 2015 because our son, daughter-in-law, and two grand-daughters live 10 houses down the street from us."

"I have been a Sound & Video System contractor for 40 plus years. When you have been in business that long, you meet a lot of people and make a lot of good contacts. Astonishing customer service is the reason that I have many clients that I still serve after 30-40 years. "

Russ Perry, Renaissance Resident, 4 years
Director

"I have been a resident for nine years. I think it's time to give back to my community and I can do that by serving on the board, that's my desire."
