Some residents are unaware of the three boards which oversee the functioning of Kendal. Three governing boards manage the affairs of Kendal:
- The Kendal Resident Association (KRA) – elected by residents, charged with 1) promoting and furthering the interests and welfare of the residents of Kendal at Longwood; 2) communicating and cooperating with the Kendal-Crosslands Communities Board of Directors and staff at Kendal in promoting a provident, healthful, enjoyable and useful community life. Pictures of the KRA Board, minutes and important documents are found on this website.
- Kendal-Crosslands Community Board (KCC)– The KCC Board of Directors is charged with full fiduciary responsibility for the assets and operations of Kendal~Crosslands Communities, and sets policy and strategic direction for the organization to ensure its long term success in serving residents and the community. Like other Kendal system affiliate organizations, KCC is committed to a durable affiliation with The Kendal Corporation, through an affiliation agreement and shared bylaws provisions.
