Click the play button on the video below
The Oakmont Forum had a very successful inaugural meeting on December 8, with standing room only for a presentation and discussion on the work of the Ad Hoc Bylaws Revision Committee (BRC), and an after-meeting to discuss the purpose and possible activities of the Oakmont Forum.
Four of the six members of the BRC were present, with Hugh Helm and Joe Henderson leading the Bylaws discussion. The discussion was wide ranging, including such things as:
- proposals to change the voting rules to allow up to two owner-residents from each household to vote in OVA elections;
- to change the number of directors from seven to nine and the term to three years, with three directors elected each year;
- to change the formula for computing dues; to require membership votes to decide whether or not to proceed with large (e.g. over $1M) capital expansion projects;
- and a number of other topics.
For anyone who was not able to attend but would like to hear the Bylaws presentation and discussion, here is the Oakmont Forum audio recording:
As Hugh noted during the meeting, the BRC will provide amendment proposals to the OVA Board, who will select which of them will be on the ballot for a vote of the OVA membership, possibly as early as to be included in the spring director election ballot. It is not too late to make your opinions known to the BRC, either by Emailing the Committee Chair, Dennis Boaz, at email@example.com, or by showing up at a BRC meeting – visit the Bylaws Revision Committee page for more information.
