The annual election to fill one of the two resident-elected POA Board positions will be held in October. All elections – national, state or local – are important, but this one affects each homeowner in Quail Creek. The person elected will serve a two-year term representing all residents on the POA Board which is responsible for running our community and ensuring it continues to be the great place it is to live. Candidates must be homeowners in good standing. It is recommended that the homeowner be a full time resident and have previously served on at least one Board authorized committee. POA Board members must be willing and are obligated to participate in all Board meetings and assignments, including serving as a Liaison to various Board-appointed committees. Being a POA Board member requires a commitment of time and energy, but the results can be so rewarding. You have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a positive contribution to the community in which you live. You can make a difference!
Interested potential candidates should obtain a Candidate Packet from the Concierge Desk or online at quailcreekhoa.org. This packet contains an introductory letter, guidelines for campaign etiquette and a statement of intent. Once the required information is completed, the packet should be returned to the Concierge Desk to the attention of the Chairperson – Election Committee. If the completed packet is received at the Concierge Desk by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 19 the candidate’s information will be included in an article in the September issue of the Quail Creek Crossing. The final deadline for all completed packets is 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6.
There will be two Meet the Candidate events where homeowners will have the opportunity to meet the candidates and ask questions. In addition, there will be a section on the Quail Creek Message Board (quailcreekhoa.org) dedicated to the 2016 election. This will provide a forum for candidates to provide information to residents. In turn, residents may ask questions of the candidates and they may respond. Details for the events and how to access the Message Board will be announced in What’s Happening.
