As such, we are in need of homeowners willing to volunteer to run/serve on the Sarah’s Glen Homeowners Association Board of Directors. In case you are not familiar, the board of directors is comprised of three Sarah’s Glen homeowners elected to serve terms in three different positions. These are the President, Vice-President and a Treasurer/Secretary.
Functionally, the Board of Directors is responsible for making decisions about the maintenance and repair of elements deemed the responsibility of the homeowners association in the Sarah’s Glen Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs). The board also has the responsibility and authority to enforce the Sarah’s Glen Rules and Regulations.
Utilizing these documents (and other appropriate resources), the Board of Directors adopts an annual operating budget, insures adequate reserve funding, plans for both short term and long term maintenance/repair projects and adopts new rules/regulations should they become necessary. The Board of Directors utilizes the services of a contracted property management company (currently W.L. Seymour Inc.) who is responsible for overseeing the day to day concerns of the Sarah’s Glen Homeowners Association.
The Board of Directors carries a fiduciary duty on behalf of the Sarah’s Glen Homeowners Association and is obligated to follow all applicable laws and regulations that govern Illinois townhome associations. Only one individual in a joint ownership residence can serve on the Sarah’s Glen Board of Directors at one time.
Other than being willing to volunteer your time/energy and serve on the board in good faith, there are very few other restrictions that would prevent a Sarah’s Glen homeowner from being able to serve on the board of directors. There is a wealth of information available online to help familiarize prospective board members with Illinois association law, proper board procedure and operating best practices.
The value of our homes and the desire to preserve Sarah’s Glen as an upscale townhome community is very important to all Sarah’s Glen homeowners! We live in a small association and we desperately need new individuals who are willing to invest their experience, time and energy in voluntarily serving the homeowners association.
The meeting to elect a new Board of Directors is scheduled for January 25, 2011 at the Vernon Area Public Library. If you are interested in serving, please fill out/return the Candidate Profile form. If you have any questions, please contact W.L. Seymour Inc. at (847) 359-8980 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please consider volunteering your time!
