Veranda Annual Meeting Monday, October 25, 2021 7:00pm. on Zoom!
Dear Veranda Homeowners:
The Veranda Neighborhood Association annual meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 25, 2021, at 7:00 PM. The Executive Board decided to host a Zoom annual meeting in the hopes to have more homeowner participation. Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus, the board feels a Zoom meeting will offer the best chance for the most homeowners to participate in the annual meeting.

Bylaws Change - To be fair to the two different classifications of homeowners and the two different dues structures, the Executive Board, at their September 17, 2021, Executive Board Meeting unanimously voted to change Section 4.1 of the Bylaws, Composition of the Executive Board to read:
“The composition of the Executive Board shall include two voting members from the towns/carriages and two voting members from the single-family homes. The 5th board seat may be a towns/carriage homeowner, a single-family homeowner, or a non-homeowner, dually elected by the full membership to serve as a member of the Executive Board. There may not be two members of the same household serving on the Executive Board at the same time. Homeowners that are not current on their dues and/or are currently and knowingly in violation of the governing documents may not serve on the executive board.”
As a result, the two open board seats that you will be voting on at the 2021 annual board meeting will only be open to towns/carriages homeowners. Three single family homeowners currently occupy the three other board seats.
If you are a towns/carriages homeowner and wish to run for one of the two open board seats, please submit your Letter of Intent to: Support@WooCatManagement.com by October 15, 2021 so you can be added to the online voting ballot.
