After a false start caused by a fatally-flawed first election mailer, the annual election for three (3) Board members finally took place on August 29, 2017. Four Owners were on the ballot, and three were elected to serve by majority vote of the 132 Owners casting ballots. Joining current Board members Ed Byrnes and Jean Foss, the newly elected Board members are Gary Carpenter, Michael McBade and Bob Freeman (re-elected for an additional term).
At the conclusion of the election, and before the election of officers, Bob Freeman tendered his immediate resignation from the Board, citing time constraints to effectively perform Board service. In accordance with the LJCHOA Bylaws, the new Board will fill the newly vacant position by appointment at an upcoming Board meeting; any Owner wishing to fill this vacancy should alert a Board member of their interest.
The organization meeting followed immediately, and resulted in the following officer appointments:
President = Gary Carpenter
Secretary = Jean Foss
Treasurer = Ed Byrnes
Vice-President = (vacant)
New Board member Michael McBade expressed an interest in serving on the Architectural Review Committee, and the Board consented with his appointment to the ARC as the new, voting, Board Liaison member. Bob Freeman, the former Board Liaison to the ARC, remained on the committee as an interested Owner.
One item of business conducted by the new Board was announcing an intent to return to every-month Board meetings. The Board instructed NCM to identify the cost increase that would result from the increased meeting frequency, and to report back at the next Board meeting (tentatively in late September).
