Board Nominations

Board of Directors Nominees and Election

Each year five or more of the fifteen positions on the HHA Board of Directors are filled by election. Five positions open due to normal expiration of terms while others may open due to resignations or removals.

The five nominees receiving the highest numbers of votes serve three-year terms.

The schedule for the election of Directors to serve terms is as follows, in accordance with the By-Laws and Policies of the Association.

  • At the September General Meeting, the floor is opened for nominations to the Board of Directors. Nominators and nominees must be current members of the Association. Nominators may speak for two minutes. Before someone is nominated they need to be committed to serve.  Individuals may not nominate themselves, nor may nominees speak on their own behalf at this meeting. Seconding speeches are no longer necessary.
  • By the Wednesday after the September meeting, the Election Committee distributes election packets to all nominees containing bylaws, policies, articles of incorporation, committee responsibility list, detailed election schedule, and a statement confirming that the nominee has read the bylaws and policies and agrees to serve in accordance with them if elected.
  • By 5:00 PM on the Friday following the September General Meeting, signed statements from nominees are due, as well as a 50-word (maximum) statement from each nominee for publication in the October newsletter and on the website. Statements longer than 50 words (as counted by Microsoft Word) will be truncated after the fiftieth word when published.
  • At the October General Meeting, nominees or their representatives may speak on their qualifications for three minutes. They also draw for ballot positions at the beginning of the meeting.
  • By the Friday following the General Meeting, the Election Committee mails a ballot with a control number to each member in good standing whose dues are currently paid as of October 1.
  • Ballots must be received by the Saturday prior to the November General Meeting, at the close of the U. S. Post Office, with control numbers intact.
  • Before the November General Meeting, polls are open for secret balloting in person from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM sharp. The Election Committee tabulates ballots and announces the results during the meeting. The results are also be published in the December newsletter.

2018 Board of Directors Nominee Statements

Rick Castagno
I have lived in the Heights community since 2013. I have been active in the community volunteering as a docent during the Spring home show and attending/contributing to various charity events. I love the Heights history and believe we should preserve its character while moving into the 21st century.

Marc Elliott
My wife, Taylore, and I moved to the Heights in 2008. We started our family a few years later and consider it an immense privilege to continue to live and raise our family in this community. I want to get more involved and encourage others to do the same.

Kenny Terrell
It has been an honor to serve the community of The Heights for the past three plus years and I look forward to another term. My philosophy as a board member is to make our already successful events even more exciting in order to engage our newer neighbors.

Carol Welter
I have been a resident of the Heights for 11 years. I’ve served on various Committees (Spring Home Tour, Patron Party, Holiday Home, Fun Run, Bike Rally, Membership Committee, Board Secretary, Board Member) and received the Rising Star Award in 2013 and the Marcella Perry Award in 2015.

Dawnia Willis
I’ve been actively engaged in the community since 2010.  Even during my travels abroad, I’ve remained engaged. I feel that it’s important to give back, and strive to make our wonderful community even better.  Being a member of the board would give me the opportunity to be more directly involved.
