Five of the fifteen positions on the HHA Board of Directors will be filled by election over the next few months (all due to normal expiration of terms), so it is time to start thinking about who from around the neighborhood (including yourself), you might want to see on the Board. The five nominees receiving the highest number of votes will serve three-year terms.
Current directors include:
- Joe Alanis
- Neal Cannon
- David Crowl
- Kevin Chenevert
- Sharon Dearman
- Angela Dewree
- Marc Elliott
- Lynn Ellis
- Linda Eyles
- Damian Ogier
- Danae Stephenson
- Kenny Terrell
- Carol Welter
- Heather Williams
- Mark Williamson
The schedule for the election of Directors to serve terms starting in 2019 will be as follows, in accordance with the By-Laws and Policies of the Association.
- September 9 at the Community Meeting, the floor will be opened for nominations to the Board of Directors. Nominators and nominees must be current members of the Association. Nominators may speak for two minutes. Please be sure before you nominate someone that your nominee will commit 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 September 11, the Election Committee will distribute to nominees election packets 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 Community Meeting (September 13), signed statements from nominees are due, as well as a picture of each nominee and 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.
- October 14 at the Community Meeting, nominees or their representatives may speak on their qualifications for three minutes. They will also draw for ballot positions at the beginning of the meeting.
- By the Friday following the Community Meeting (October 18), the Election Committee will mail a ballot with a control number to each member in good standing whose dues are currently paid as of October 1. (Members invoiced by August 15 and not paid by October 1 are deemed not in good standing.)
- Ballots must be received by November 9, at the close of the U. S. Post Office, with control numbers intact.
- November 11, before the Community Meeting, polls will be open for secret balloting in person from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM sharp. The Election Committee will tabulate ballots and announce the results during the meeting. The results will also be published in the December newsletter.
