For July Election, Nomination Forms Must Be In by May 31

Some time in May, Oakridge homeowners receive a letter informing them of the July election meeting at which either two or three Board positions will be filled. The positions are for two-year terms. Article VII (see p. 11), "Board of Directors," of the Bylaws adopted in 2011, call for staggered terms for board members--three members' terms expire in odd years and two expire in even years.

Qualifications

To run for a board position, you:

Officer positions are determined by the board, once the new board is constituted, at their first meeting. Members hold five positions: president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and member-at-large.

The deadline for submitting the Candidate Nomination Form is May 31. Soon thereafter, homeowners are asked to vote for the candidates of your choice to fill the two or three open board positions. The ballots are counted at the July board meeting.

Please note that completed candidate forms are required to qualify to be placed on the ballot.

Duties

The Board of Directors shall perform and execute, for and on behalf of the Association, all of the duties which have been delegated to the Association as set forth in the articles entitled "Powers" and "Duties" of the Association Bylaws in addition to those duties of the Community Board required by law.

For more details, read ARTICLE IX (see p. 18), "Duties and Powers of the Board," of the Association's Bylaws.
