According to the Bylaws of the Lake Lotawana Association “An Annual Meeting of the Owner/Members shall be held each year. The purpose of such meeting shall be to inform the Membership of the accomplishments during the past year and the plans and goals for the next year; present a complete statement of the Association’s financial condition; present any proposed changes to the By-Laws for vote by the Membership; conduct the election of Directors in the election years and permit the Membership to express their concerns and opinions to the Board of Directors.”
This year’s meeting will be held on Tuesday March 10th at 7:30 at the Church of Jesus Christ – Colbern Road Restoration Branch inside Gate 2. At this meeting, we will present our past year’s progress and our goals for 2020. We will discuss the financial position of the Association and our subsidiary Lotawana Properties. It is also the night that we elect the District Directors for the odd-numbered Districts.
By now you should have received your ballots in the mail. The bylaws require that your signed ballots must be at the office by noon on Saturday, March 7th. Please note: ballots will not be taken at the meeting. There is a spot on the outside of the envelope where your signature goes. Every year we receive unsigned ballots that cannot be counted, and some members try and kill two birds with one stone by enclosing their dues payments in with the ballots. Since the ballots cannot be opened before the meeting, any payments that are enclosed with your ballots will be considered late, and interest will be charged from January 1st.
If you are not familiar with the names listed on your ballot and don’t know who to vote for, call your current director. There is a list of the District Directors on our website or we can provide his or her name at the office. Your current director may be willing to continue in a new term of two years or he/she may be able to tell you about another neighbor who would like to have the job. If you’re interested in becoming a director feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about the responsibilities of a director. The March Meeting is a great opportunity for our members to learn about everything that’s going on in our community. It should be an exciting meeting. Hope to see you there.
Finally, a gentle reminder that your assessments are due by the end of this month. Any unpaid balances after February 29th will be charged interest going back to January 1st.
