We will be changing the way our meetings will be conducted so there will be less of an emphasis on administrative issues, and more of a focus on important community updates and discussion.

The Board of Directors will be reporting back on their recent Planning Retreat, announcing new Standing Committees, meeting dates for 2019 and exciting ideas for a 2019 action plan. There will be lots of ways for residents to get involved!
