Eagle Pointer - ANNUAL MEETING CANCELLED
Eagle Point Residents -
Because I was the serving as Vice-President on the Board of the EPHOA at the time of Raymond Newton’s passing, I became the interim President until the new Board is put in place and votes new officers in.
The current Board members (me, Dave Gangle, Don DeCesare, and David Evans) have voted unanimously to cancel the annual meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 12th at 7:00 pm at The Hampton Inn. Group gatherings of this nature pose a health threat at this time, and we feel it would be irresponsible to try to get such a large group together. We realize the bylaws call for an annual meeting, but COVID has changed the way things are done in this world. Any venue we’ve considered would have trouble hosting a socially distanced group as large as ours. We’ve consulted with other HOAs who attempted video conferencing their meetings and doing live streams, and we feel Eagle Point is too large for either forum to be conducted successfully.
Right now, the Board is scheduled to meet next Wednesday, January 13th. At that time, we will welcome Bill Myers to the Board of EPHOA; he was a candidate on the ballot you received with your annual letters and dues invoice. We are grateful for his willingness to serve and look forward to him becoming a part of the Board. Per the bylaws, the Board will also elect officers at next week’s meeting. We will publish the minutes of that meeting by close of business on Friday, January 15th.
While we feel it necessary to cancel the annual meeting, we feel strongly that we need to give residents a voice for their concerns and questions about Eagle Point and the plans for 2021. To that end, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any issue/concern you have. Please indicate in your e-mail whether you’d like us to publicly address the issue or whether you’d like a private reply; we will do our best to accommodate your request. At the Board meeting on January 13th, we will discuss the issues we receive, group like concerns together, and make a plan to answer or publish a list/summary of answers.
I will personally miss seeing the familiar faces that usually come to the annual meeting, and I don’t like losing the opportunity to meet new neighbors! I look forward to continued service to Eagle Point, and I wish everyone a Happy New Year! May 2021 bring back the best parts of our “normal”, pre-COVID lives!
Interim President, EPHOA
