Annual Membership Meeting Presentation


The Association holds its Annual Membership meeting each year on the last Wednesday in January. This year our membership meeting was scheduled for January 29, 2020. Unfortunately, the Association did not have a sufficient number of members in order to call the meeting to order. The Association would like to ensure that the membership has an opportunity to still receive the information and reports that would have been provided at the meeting had it been held. Below is a link for the presentation for the meeting. The presentation covers general updates, project updates, a financial report, as well as water conservation presentation.
