Annual Meeting and Election of New Board of Directors
The Cedar Point POA will hold its annual meeting on Saturday, May 10th, 2014, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Clubhouse. Included will be the election of a five member Board of Directors to manage the Association for the 2014/2015 term of office. A listing of those candidates who have applied for a position on the Board is included along with an absentee ballot to be used to cast your vote should you be unable to attend the meeting. Ballots must be returned to the POA office by close of business May 8th, 2014 in order to be counted. Ballots may be returned by mail, hand delivered, faxed (936-646-2322) or e-mailed (firstname.lastname@example.org). All ballots must be signed. In addition to voting for the Board, the ballot contains a proposal to amend the By-Laws that will allow the elected term of the Board to be staggered for two years eliminating the necessessity of replacing the entire Board of Directors every year.
The last couple of years have been very tumultuous and have caused us to change the way we operate in some areas of our basic planning and budgeting and how we look forward to meeting our obligations. Even with the District Court ruling in favor of the POA and upholding our covenants many things have been brought to light that over time will have to be addressed and in some instances will require that they be rewritten, better defined and possibly chiseled in stone so there can be only one interpretation.
We urge all of you who are able to attend this annual meeting to please do so in order that you may hear from your current Board and understand what we, as a community, are facing over the next several years. If you are unable to attend, please return your absentee ballot so that your vote may be counted. Remember these individuals are your representatives and manage your sub-division.
