Hello everyone, hope this finds everyone healthy and happy. This month I have been very encouraged by how working together as a team can benefit our community, and help us all achieve a common goal. The Easter scavenger hunt was a tremendous success , it encouraged many of us to walk around our community and connect with our neighbors, while searching for the Easter clues. It also gave our, out of the area owners, a sense of involvement, and I would like thank all of those who helped to decorate their homes for them.
Then we had the storm hit, and we had damage we have not seen outside of hurricane season. Bins toppled over, trash strewn about, limbs both small and large downed from trees. Trash corrals toppled over, and many pool screens suffered. No sooner had the storm blown over than an army of willing homeowners turned out to help with the clean-up, and help make our community safe for us all. While I was driving around to assess the damage and determine whether emergency services needed to be called or homeowners notified of damage to their properties. I saw many of you out helping with the clean up! Thanks go out to all of you that helped your neighbors!
In every organization there are those who help, but seek no recognition, they quietly work behind the scenes. Without their contribution the well-oiled machine would grind to a halt. Board members, committee members or homeowners, it is all of you that help to make this community one we can all enjoy. I understand that it can be tiring at times, I understand the hours that are invested by those of you that volunteer your time and efforts. The countless hours on emails, phone calls, homeowners on your doorstep, late night and early morning calls, making sure the bottom line is covered, working with vendors, continuing education, researching topics of concern, and at times doing all of this while being criticized. I want you to know it does not go unnoticed. Thank you all!
Serving as an HOA board member is a journey that starts on the day of election. Many of our homeowners may be unaware but as part of the continuing education that I mentioned earlier, Leland Management and others offer educational Webinars on a variety of topics, from Landscaping to Board meeting protocol, to updates in the law and how it pertains to the HOA. They provide a wealth of knowledge and ensure that our board members are kept up to date with current practice and legislation.
As President I and other board members regularly attend these webinars whilst also drawing on past experiences to make the best, well informed decisions and directions available for our whole community.
Thank you, Mary Schnuerer – President, 4/21/2021
