Community Update – November 2016

We are approaching time for the annual meeting, which will take place February 6, 2017 at the Southwest OKC Pioneer Library on SW 134th St. At that time, three of the board member positions will be open including President, Secretary, and Member at Large. Upon election, each position will begin immediately and will serve a two-year term. If you have an interest in any of the open positions, please contact the current board through the country place website at www.countryplacehoa.com in order to submit yourself as a candidate. Simply click the “Contact Us” link and fill out the form with your contact information, which position you are interested in, and a brief background regarding your qualifications for the position. Please note that you must be up to date on your dues to be eligible for a seat on the board.

Additionally, our bylaws require a Nominating Committee to be formed of three homeowners to assist in selecting which candidates will be voted on by the homeowners. If you are willing to participate in the Committee, please contact us through the website.

Our next meeting, to be held on December 5, 2016 at 7pm at Southgate Baptist Church (740 SW 4th St.), will have a guest speaker, Master Sergeant Brackeen from the Oklahoma City Police Department. He will be available to discuss the crime statistics in our neighborhood as well as to answer questions that we may have.

Lastly, in order for our board to be as open and transparent as possible regarding the finances, we would like to put together an Audit Committee of two or three homeowners. The Committee’s responsibility would be to schedule a time with the Treasurer to review bank statements and cash disbursement documents for the year and ask questions. This process would likely take two to three hours. You would then report back at the annual meeting to the homeowners. Your report would include whether or not you believe the records appear to be in proper order or not, and if there are any suggestions on improving the HOA accounting process.

We hope to see you at our next meeting.

Sincerely,

Courtney Vieta
President & Treasurer
