1/20/2017 - BOARD OF DIRECTOR NOMINATIONS
Who do you want to represent you on your Board of Directors? For 2017, we have three Directors whose terms are expiring, so we need to elect three qualified homeowners to fill those seats. We are asking for your kokua (help) with the process.
First, we still need volunteers to be on the Nominating Committee. This group of homeowners will get all the applications for Director seats and verify the candidates' qualifications, organize a forum for candidates to share their ideas for the future of PEK, and nominate a slate. This portion of the work will be completed by the end of March.
Second, we need great candidates for those three positions. This is a real time commitment. If you want to be sure that our development maintains its values and that all of us live by the same rules to make us good neighbors and owners, maybe you want to run for office. Or perhaps you know someone who has those values and would like to participate. There are seven Directors on the Board, which means that almost half of the Board will be new in 2017. Candidates be must be willing to participate in the Board's work by preparing for meetings (every quarter and an occasional special meeting), talking with homeowners about issues, and making decisions for the good of the Pualani Estates community. Candidates must be owners in good standing with the Homeowners' Association.
We have two seats still available on the Nominating Committee. Please send names and contact information to Kate Winter at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 21. One of us on the committee will be contacting each volunteer soon.
Please recommend or volunteer owners to be candidates. Send any suggestions to Kate at the same email address. Let's make this year's election fair, inclusive and transparent. Last year we got a quorum - we can do it again and make all votes count!
