Frequently Asked Questions
- How do you form Committees? – A Nominating Committee is a Special Committee whose task must be completed in some manner and they can not rely on only two people to do the task of putting together a slate of recommendations. (Which can happen when a committee is reduced to three members and one does not show up or is late. Not a good idea.) While it is entirely possible that an office will remain empty simply because there is nobody qualified for the job in the eyes of the Committee, they should make every effort to not allow that to happen. Our community of members is full of talent and amazing people. So we all should be digging for candidates, volunteering, and basically stepping forward to contribute. But when a vacancy occurs, the office is opened to the floor for nominations. The Committee’s report, however, will show a vacancy when presented.
- Why 3 to 5 members? – The main reason is because if someone has to drop out, then there will be enough to continue the work. A committee of three is plausible.
- Who appoints the chairperson? – The committee
- Can anyone serve? – Yes and No. Every member is welcome to serve! But candidates for office, per our NASWC Bylaws can not be members of a committee. The President is an ex officio member of all committees except the Nominating and Audit Committee

Who are the officers of NASWC? How do I contact them?
How may I join?
You must be at least 18 years old and a resident within our geographical boundaries in order to join NASWC. If you have questions about the membership fee or if you need information about the discounted trash rate available, please contact the treasurer (see Contact Us page).
Can I get the discounted trash pickup?
- Join NASWC if you are not already a member.
- The discounted trash service for NASWC members is provided by Round Rock Refuse (RRR). You can contact the treasurer (see Contact Us page). There is also a place on the membership form to indicate that you want to sign up for RRR service.
- After we notify you by phone or e-mail that the garbage company has been advised of your membership, YOU must call RRR at 512-255-4980 to establish your service with their company.
Please Note: If you establish service with RRR before your NASWC membership is confirmed, you will have to wait until the next quarterly billing for RRR to give you the discounted rate. So wait until you hear from NASWC, confirming your membership before you call RRR!
I live in a MUD within the NASWC community. May I still join?
For only $25 per year, NASWC gives you a voice where you may not have one. For example, in order for a Municipal Utility District to exist, it must agree to not protest annexation proceedings. Thus, residents in that MUD who oppose annexation have no representation fighting for them.
NASWC, however, believes homeowners opinions must be represented at county and city levels. Thus, like our work on Zoning issues, law enforcement issues, or our work with the County, the neighbors in NASWC are prepared to deal with difficult questions which directly affect taxes, property values, or health and safety – like annexation.
