Credit and Criminal Background Screening

  • Eligible candidates undergo credit and background screening.

Board Interviews and Selection

  • Candidates that meet salary, testing, and screening criteria are then presented to the Board.
  • The Board receives test results, resumes, and letters of recommendation from former employers.
  • The Board will meet the eligible manager(s) and ultimately decide the best fit for their community.

Onboarding – Vanguard provides an operational audit.

  • Unlike a financial audit, all systems and operations performed by the association are scrutinized.
  • Recommendations where appropriate will enhance efficiency and the quality of services. However, any changes to existing processes and procedures come with the approval of the board.
  • The Manager, Staff, and Board approved volunteers are provided with initial and ongoing training on Vanguard software including the community website.
  • Vanguard, not the Board, is responsible for ongoing supervision of the manager and staff.
