Connestee Falls is a mature master planned community that is resident owned and operated by the Connestee Falls Property Owners Association (CFPOA.) The community actually operates much like a small hometown with an elected board and a full time professional management staff.

Safety - We seek to maintain and enhance residents' confidence in their personal and property safety.
Volunteerism - We encourage members to be active in governing the Association and to participate in Connestee Falls activities.
Stewardship of the environment - We strive to ensure that our homes, common infrastructure and activities are harmonious with our natural surroundings.
Value of membership - We employ conservative fiscal practices and effective management to provide a high level of satisfaction with value received.
Transparency - We foster active communication among our members and our leadership.

Community Governance & Management Structure
The CFPOA has an active board of directors who are elected to represent the property owners in the governance of the community. A variety of committees organize and manage various aspects of life and leisure within the community and report to the board regularly on progress and potential funding needs.
A professional in-house management team is led by the CFPOA General Manager who reports to the board of directors. The team handles all fiscal and facilities management including the golf course and clubhouse. It also manages the physical plant over the 4,000-acre property including a large maintenance operation that maintains the roads, lakes, amenities and other CFPOA assets.
All Connestee Falls property owners have the opportunity to be as involved as they wish in the running of the community. Annual meetings are held along with many other gatherings and forums for residents to be involved and have input into the governance and operation of their community.
