We need you!
The Summit-Waller Community Association (SWCA) Board of Directors is seeking new board members! We are currently looking to fill our alternate positions on the Board.

What does the SWCA do?
The SWCA Board of Directors is a nine-member, all volunteer group comprised of local Summit-Waller residents. The association’s mission is to promote the quality of life, neighborhoods, and enjoyment of property for residents living in the Summit-Waller community. We do this by partnering with residents, Pierce County and other organizations on a variety of programs, activities and activism. You can find our full mission and objectives on our website at

With approximately 5,750 residences in the Summit-Waller community the Board represents less than one percent of the total residences. They can’t do it alone and need your help!

What is the time commitment?
Board meetings are the first Tuesday of every month (7-9pm). Currently, meetings are virtual, so you don’t even have to leave your home to attend! Our annual meeting occurs in the first Tuesday in May.
Once we are able, meetings will be held in person at the Mid-County Community Center located behind Central Avenue Elementary School. Also, outside activities such as the Waller Road roadside litter pick-up, Orangegate Park cleanup and annual Membership and Community meeting will resume, and could greatly benefit from your participation, but are not required.

What are the qualifications to join the Board?
It’s easy. Do you live within Summit-Waller? Do you work or own a business within Summit-Waller? Do you work for the Puyallup or Franklin Pierce School Districts? We just ask that you either work or live in the community.

How do I join?
It’s easy. Fill out the Board of Directors application posted on our website and Facebook page. Return it and plan to attend an upcoming board meeting. If you have any questions you can contact us at

Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon!
