Desert Aire Owners Association is comprised of owners who invested in our community looking to enjoy the slow pace and sunny weather while benefiting from the affordable economic environment of Central Washington. Some owners live here full-time, while others spend time during winter months in southern climates like Arizona and California. Other owners still in their working years in metropolitan areas of Western Washington spend weekends, holidays, and vacation time enjoying the outdoor recreation available from a second residence.
DA's Visitor Information Center was established to provide information about living, working and playing in our area of South Grant County. With that in mind, numerous avenues are available to owners to keep apprised of events and happenings affecting their DA life-style and financial investment. Owners can proactively retrieve information at their leisure using today's technology tools:
DAOA.org is the official website for "Everything Under the Sun" about Desert Aire. A public view opens first for general information designed to evolve to assist owners, renters, and visitors. This view is currently being refreshed, with a new look coming soon!
Owners can access information pertinent only to the business of the Association through a MEMBER ONLY button on the home page. Instructions are easy to follow for initial access. Once completed, return visits are easy. This side of the site will be the second phase of the refresh to streamline searches to the various documents, forms, and meeting information.
Owner contact information is kept in a secure database on the secure website side in the main menu bar under a roster known as MEMBER CENTRAL. Profiles here allow owners to share or protect information from viewing by other owners with a simple keystroke, making it a valuable method to find DA neighbors and friends. Keeping accurate information updated is a simple method for owners to help maintain. Information is used only to conduct DAOA business, not shared or sold to anyone or any entity.
EMAIL blasts push out information, including surveys to heighten awareness on emergency situations, collect opinions and even help lost dogs find their owners. Owners can read these at their leisure, store for future reference, or delete at anytime.

Stay informed. Too often the rumor mill in a community can distort the facts about any issue or situation. We understand many owners are retired and just want to enjoy life in DA, while others are wondering how changes in their world will affect their future to do the same. In this time of the global community reacting to a "new normal", take some time to educate yourself on the pressing issues in our community and encourage your neighbors and friends to do the same.
