In order to accommodate the safety concerns of BSIA Members relating to Covid19, the Annual Membership Meeting will not be conducted as an in-person event. Instead, under emergency powers granted by Governor DeSantis to HOA’s, the annual membership meeting has been tentatively re-scheduled from November 2, 2020 to March 25, 2021. Assuming that conditions are safe for a large in-person meeting we plan to meet at Twin Isles Country Club and possibly include a social hour and dinner. Details will follow.
However, the BSIA will meet the minimal requirements of the BSIA By-Laws for the business that must be accomplished at its Annual Meeting using secure email and, for those who have opted out of email, mail-in ballots. Therefore, we will be inviting the BSIA Members to vote on only the following annual meeting requirements:
1. 2021 Annual budget as presented by Bill Page, Treasurer (to be mailed with the November Newsletter and available in the email and mailed ballots)
2. 2021 Officer and Board Member Candidates as presented by Libby Strong, Chair of the Nominating Committee for the following open positions:
President: Bill Courtney (second two-year term)
Vice President: Faith Ferris (second two-year term)
Secretary: David De Gerome (first two-year term)
Legal Liaison: Joe Meyer (second two-year term)
Neighborhood Security: C. J. Metcalfe (second two-year term)
All other officer and director positions will be entering the second year of their two-year terms and are not required to stand for election.
There Will Be Two Methods of Voting
E-Mail: For the majority of members, a special e-mail will be sent that will allow Members to vote electronically. This e-mail is anticipated to be issued on or around 11/17 and must be returned by 12/1.
Mail-In Ballot: - Those on file to receive correspondence by posted mail will receive a mail-in ballot on or around 11/17 and it must be returned by 12/1.
*As a reminder: All Members shall have one (1) vote per membership/household
Show your pride in your association and neighborhood!!
