AUSTIN NEWCOMERS CLUBMarch Luncheon
THE MARCH LUNCHEON SPEAKER WILL BE AUSTIN POLICE CHIEF ART ACEVEDO.
Art Acevedo serves as the eighth Police Chief in the 84-year history of the Austin Police Department and is the first Hispanic to lead the Citys police force. With more than two decades of law enforcement experience, he oversees a department that employs approximately 2,100 sworn officers and civilian personnel. With the consolidation of the Austin Police Department and the Austin Public Safety and Emergency Management Department in January 2009, Acevedo is now responsible for all municipal law enforcement in the City of Austin, including Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, parks, and municipal courts.
Chief Acevedo began his professional career in law enforcement with the California Highway Patrol in 1986, bringing a well-established commitment to community outreach and coalition building to Austin. He strives to establish strong community relationships throughout the city with the goal of strengthening the relationship between the people of Austin and their Police Department. Chief Acevedo leads by example with a strong sense of community involvement through his own personal time and resources.
Born in Havana, Cuba, Acevedo migrated to the United States with his family in 1968 in search of freedom and the opportunities to be found in America. He grew up in
California, and earned his Bachelor of Science degree, with departmental honors, in Public Administration from the University of La Verne. He is married to Tanya and is the father of three children, Melissa, Matthew and Jake.
Appointed Austin Police Chief in July 2007, Chief Acevedo believes in the spirit of our community and the commitment to excellence demonstrated by the men and women he leads.

TWIN CREEKS COMMUNITY COMMITTEES
In order for the Twin Creeks Home Owners Association to provide the best service to our community, several committees have been established to allow the participation of residents to help build the best neighborhood possible. Listed below are the five core committees necessary to achieve this goal.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH COMMITTEE The Neighborhood Watch Committee works with the local
law enforcement office to establish and maintain a neighborhood watch group to help keep the community safe and secure. This committee depends upon neighbors to become involved by looking out for one another and by knowing what course of action to take if there should be a problem. Volunteers from every neighborhood within our community are needed. Contact Terra Tisdale at firstname.lastname@example.org or Anne Wilson at email@example.com to volunteer.
COMMUNICATION COMMITTEE The Communication Committee helps organize articles for
the newsletter and other neighborhood communications, and assists in the establishment of a neighborhood website, news group and email distribution list.
MAINTENANCE COMMITTEE The Maintenance Committee monitors the general condition
of the neighborhood and helps identify areas in need of repair or improvement, such as the irrigation system, streetlights, or other common property.
SOCIAL & RECREATION COMMITTEE The Social & Recreation Committee helps plan neighborhood
events, such as biannual garage sales, holiday parties, and National Night Out, as well as combined events with Twin Creeks Country Club.
YARD OF THE MONTH COMMITTEE The Yard of the Month Committee judges our yards and
then selects a different yard each month that exemplifies the orderly and well-maintained look we expect to find in our neighborhood.
Participation in our Home Owners Association is necessary for Twin Creeks to maintain its unique qualities as a country club community and to ensure a safe, beautifully maintained residential neighborhood for our families.
To volunteer for any of the Twin Creeks committees, please contact Kathy Taylor, Property Manager at Goodwin Management, at 512-852-7998 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
