By the Elections Committee

It is that time of year again when your Foundation Elections Committee informs you about the upcoming Board of Directors election. In 2021, there will be two openings to be filled on the Pelican Bay Foundation Board. Now is the time to consider serving your community in this important capacity.

Any Pelican Bay Foundation member in good standing may run for election to the Board of Directors. In order to be included on the ballot, qualified candidates must submit a Candidate Information Form to the Foundation Executive Assistant in person, via email or through the Foundation website no later than 5 PM on Tuesday, January 12.

The Board of Directors is the governing body for the Pelican Bay Foundation, the master homeowners association responsible for enhancing the quality of life and protecting the property values for members within Pelican Bay. The Board of Directors is comprised of seven members who are elected for staggered three-year terms. As we move forward, your Board of Directors will be confronted with a number of important issues that will affect the quality of life in Pelican Bay, as well as the strategic investment of our capital funds.

The election of Directors is an important process for all members of Pelican Bay. The candidates who are elected will be representing approximately 6,500 residences. Candidates for the Board should expect to become familiar with all the Governing Documents of the Foundation, attend Board meetings each year, chair or vice-chair one to two standing committees and make themselves available to suggestions and input from Foundation members.
