HELP! Orchidland Community Association Board needs new Board members!
If you paid your association dues, you are eligible to become a member of the Board, or a member of our Road Maintenance Committee. We have multiple new openings, which we would like to fill soon as possible. Here is your opportunity to stand-up and help-out our Orchidland Community, especially if you have special skills to bring to the Board, such as tech savvy, construction, excavation, administration, legal, or political skills.
One of our main functions is to protect our agricultural zoning, which is constantly under assault from developers, real estate investors, and politicians. Our other most important function is to keep the roads open and passable, within our limited resources.
The qualifications are: Zoom, internet, etc., must be committed to attending monthly BOD meetings and participate in important decisions.
Big changes are coming to Orchidland! Orchidland is located in the fastest growing District on the Big Island, and the exciting new Orchidland Agri-Cultural Community Center is underway!

Update on monthly OLCA meetings:
In April 2020 with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and State restrictions on “social gatherings” — OLCA monthly business meetings (Board and Committee) were restricted to 10-persons maximum with social distancing. Special guests were welcome to attend with advance notice.
Recently with the onset of the flu season, the Covid-19 pandemic and greater restrictions on “social gatherings” — the OLCA Board approved going to Zoom online conferencing for the regularly scheduled monthly OLCA business meetings.
If you would like to attend an OLCA Board and/ or Committee meeting as a special guest via Zoom online conferencing, please give us advance notice. It would be best to send your advance request via email, click on the “contact us” link: Please include the topic, your name, location in Orchidland Estates (TMK if possible) and whether you an OLCA member.
Again, the OLCA Board and Committees meet on a monthly basis, the Committees meet the second Tuesday and Board the third Tuesday of each month.
