Please check the packet that Lanier will send to you which should include a ballot, dues bill for 2023, and statements from those running for the Board who chose to make a statement.
You do NOT need to pay the 2022 dues to vote on December 15th. You just need to be current as of Dec 15th.
The ByLaws call for a Board Meeting to be convened as soon as the election is over. The purpose of this meeting is for the new Board to vote for President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer for 2021. No Board Meeting has been announced.
In 2023, there are four open Directors slots. The four Board of Directors leaving in 2023 are:
Trevor Ferguson, Mark Stevens, and Ashley Gamble, plus whoever was voted in to replace Megan Hamilton back in 2021, have to step down, and their seats are up for election. (The current Board do not make public the information as to who is actually on the Board.)
Board of Directors whose terms are up, as named above, are able to run for election.
The remaining three Board Members will be finishing their two-year term , including replacements for Board Members who resigned and have been replaced by Board Member(s) voted onto the Board by the remaining Board Members at that time.( These replacements serve out the balance of the term remaining for the elected Board Members.)
The ByLaws do not allow for substitutions. Board Members terms are fixed at two years before they have to retire, or be re-elected.
The Lake Shore HOA Annual meeting is open to all members of the Lake Shore HOA. Our HOA management company, Lanier, may be present to give their annual presentation, which has to include the past and future financial budgeting. A document containing the annual financial statement has to be made available to all HOA members.
Elections for new board members are held at the Annual Meeting. To vote in the elections, you must be a homeowner is good standing. This means that all dues, fines and any accumulated interest must have been paid in full. The 2023 dues are not counted for this as they are not due until Jan 1, 2023.
The Lake Shore HOA ByLaws specify that we use the plurality voting method, rather than the cumulative voting method. (Plurality voting means that each homeowner gets to one vote for each open Director position.
Each lot has one vote, no matter how many adults may reside in the home. The home may be represented by any of the adults who are on the deed to the house (you can check who is eligible by looking at the mailing label on the large white envelope Lanier recently sent with the 2020 Dues statement, 2020 Budget, information about the Annual Meeting, and a Proxy Vote form; if your name is on this label, you would be eligible to vote as the representative for your home/lot.)
