Ways to Get Involved
All our community groups in Issaquah Highlands are volunteer led. Our group leaders share their passion with the neighborhood and bring people together with common interests. If you have an interest and would like to connect with others who share your interest, let us know! Highlands Council will help you get a community group started.

The Issaquah Highlands Community Association (IHCA) Board of Directors and committees are run by volunteers, including the Covenant Committee, Architectural Review Committee and Finance Committee. The Highlands Council Board of Trustees and the Highlands Fiber Network (HFN) Boards of Directors are also open to volunteer members.
Time Commitment: Varies. The IHCA Board of Directors and committees, and the HFN Board of Directors meet monthly. The Highlands Council Board of Trustees meets quarterly.
