Board of Governors
The Rodgers Forge Community Association (RFCA) Board of Governors was established in 1960, when the original developer of the neighborhood, The Keelty Co. transferred its rights and covenant authority to the Rodgers Forge Community, Inc. (RFC, Inc. is the legal name of the community association, but RFCA is the commonly used term today.
It is the mission of the Rodgers Forge Community Association to maintain, enhance and protect the high standards of the Rodgers Forge neighborhood, to protect the excellent quality of life in our neighborhood, and to establish the channels of communication and opportunities for the residents of Rodgers Forge to participate in the growth of the community.
While membership in RFCA is not mandatory, it is strongly encouraged as a civic duty and responsibility. The money from annual dues goes to fund the Association’s operating expenses and events like the annual picnic and other community activities that enhance all residents’ quality of life. Currently, 50%, or approximately 900 Rodgers Forge households are RFCA members, which is substantially below our goal of 75% household membership.
The Board meets monthly to discuss issues and take action as necessary. All Rodgers Forge residents are welcome to attend. Meetings take place at the Rodgers Forge Elementary School Activity Room at 7 pm on the second Wednesday of each month unless otherwise noted. Please check the newsletter for any changes to the location of the monthly meetings.
We want to hear from you! Please contact the Board with questions and suggestions on our contact page. This e-mail is monitored by the Corresponding Secretary who responds directly or forwards to the appropriate Board member to handle and respond.
