Dr. Pamela Roberson
As a resident of Carverdale since 1962, our family was among the first families to purchase a home in the community. We were raised in the church and attended Greater Macedonia Baptist Church (GMBC) in the Carverdale community. GMBC was the same church I took my children to learn the word of God. Those two children, DeAmber and Deion, were also raised in the Carverdale community and attended Cypress Fairbanks ISD. In March 2022, after 28 years of service, I retired from the MD Anderson Cancer Center
Hospital Urology department.
I have always been interested in the direction of Carverdale and motivated to affect positive change. My work in the Carverdale Civic Club started many years ago. In 2005 I was elected as President of the Carverdale Supper Neighborhood. I love being a part of things I am passionate about and eager to be at the forefront of the Carverdale community's transformation.
My goal as President is to continue to represent the neighborhood with a strong work ethic, effective communication, honesty, and integrity.

Greeting, Homeowners of the Carverdale Community,
My Name is Karen Ford-Todd, and I am excited about serving as your Secretary of the Civic Club for the calendar years 2023/2024. I look forward to working harmoniously with other board members and volunteers and making Carverdale a great place to live.
For those who don't know me, I have lived in Carverdale all my life. My late parents are Mr. & Mrs. Aaron and Anna Ford. I am the 4th child. My siblings and I are homeowners of 4 properties in the Carverdale Community. I am a product of Carverdale High School (Cobras), Bane Elementary, Dean Middle School (Mustang), and a graduate of Jersey Village High School(Falcon) class of '82'. I have a loving spouse, whom I have been married to for 32 years, four beautiful children, and a grandparent of 3. Spring Independent School District employs me as a Special Education Co-Teacher, but now my role has changed to Administration.
As a board member, my goal will be to promote Carverdale Community and maintain our neighborhood's property values. In addition, I believe it is essential to be an effective board member: getting things done on time, listening closely to homeowners, understanding the homeowners' wants and needs; staying open-minded to change; being accessible; understanding responsibilities; being direct and honest, and support the board decisions.
My job as a board member secretary is to maintain the minutes of official records, review and update documents as required, and ensure they are stored safely and accessible to the board members.
I am honored to be your 2023/2024 civic club secretary. I am pleased to work alongside the other board members and the Carverdale Community.
If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask. You may contact me at email@example.com.

reasons to become a memeber
As a homeowner, you have a big stake in the safety and cleanliness of your neighborhood. Perhaps you own a home or condo that’s part of a community that shares common amenities, such as tennis courts, playground, community pool and spa, clubhouse, private roads, sidewalks, utilities and more. How can you ensure that your Civic Club Association community will be properly maintained and taken care of? One of the best ways is to become a volunteer board member with your homeowner’s association. Civic Club Association committee positions are made up of volunteers however, the satisfaction of knowing your community is being well taken care of gives board members a sense of accomplishment.
You have a vested interest in your property. One of the top priorities of every homeowner is to protect the value of his or her home. Being involved with a Civic Club Association will put you in a better position to make and implement rules in your Civic Club Association neighborhood. Some of these regulations will directly affect property value
Correct problems. If you are noticing problems in your community, such as lack of maintenance or maybe there’s a problem with unruly neighbors, then you have the opportunity to take charge and help to correct those issues by being a part of the board.

By serving on a Civic Club Association board, you can achieve your expectations of a more perfect community much sooner by working with your neighbors.

Have fun experiences. Taking on some of your association’s tasks does not have to be boring. It can be fun, especially when you get to socialize, work with your neighbors and come up with creative ideas on how to make your community run better. Many Civic Club Association communities hold get togethers for their residents allowing the community to become more social.
Give back to the community. One way to give back to your neighbors and community is to serve on your Civic Club Association Board, which allows you the opportunity to make good decisions that will have a positive impact on all residents.
Meet your neighbors. A Civic Club Association meeting is the best place to meet your neighbors and to get to know more about them. It gives you a chance to socialize and make friends with others living in your community.
