Nominations for Board of Directors

Board President Les Wabnitz has appointed Board member Joe Thomas (Bldg. #1) to head up the annual solicitation of interest in serving on the Board of Directors.  Please let Joe or another Board member know if you are willing to serve.

The term of office is for one year, with a new Board elected each year by the members at the annual Members Meeting held in February (date to be determined).  In order to reduce owners’ costs and to serve member interests, Board members serve voluntarily to oversee HOA policies and operations.

Meetings have been held by teleconference for Board members not onsite for a Board meeting.  Many administrative matters are handled by the Board’s President at times when Board meetings are not feasible.

This is not a time-consuming task – unless by your choice – but is an important function that benefits all owners.  If you have not yet “stepped up”, now is the time!!  There will be at least two longer-term Board members stepping down in February.

Apologies for inaccurate Board teleconference information

Your webmaster has learned the provided telephone number to call for the January 16, 2021 teleconferenced Board meeting was inaccurate, so the posting on the web and sent to many members was also incorrect.  While no physical location was part of the meeting notice for the teleconference, in fact all Board members except one were physically present at the Clubhouse and held a meeting.  Board President Wabnitz participated by telephone.  I am told some member were also present for the meeting.

It appears this was actually a regular Board meeting but notice was given as a teleconference.  I apologize for the snafu.

Accounting solution “in the works”

Some owners are aware of issues involving billing and accounting for the HOA, all of which are being resolved at this time by use of a CPA working closely with our Board’s officers.  On behalf of the HOA Board, owners are asked to understand that the current status will not continue for much longer, and every effort is being made to provide accurate financial statements when appropriate.  /s/ Les Wabnitz, Board President
