Page 2 top, Article III, Section 1: [No lawyer changes, this is our original change]
The Annual Members Meeting held the first Thursday of October will never have to be rescheduled due to a holiday, so removed the last sentence which addresses the holiday.
Page 2, Article III, Section 3: [Proposed change deleted by lawyer.]
The change we had proposed to allow notification of the annual members meeting via email as an alternative, lawyer recommended we remove due to potential legal problems. It has been removed.
Page 2, Article IV, Section 1: [Changed by lawyer from "may or may not" to "need not" - more in line with our covenant and Articles of Incorporation language]
Words changed to say Directors "need not" be members of the Association (to agree with our Articles of Incorporation).
Page 3, Article V, Section 2: [Added by lawyer - no need for a secret ballot if just one nominee]
Added words to say during an election to the Board of Directors, if the positions are uncontested, the vote can be by verbal acclamation of the members in attendance.
Page 4 & 5, Article VIII, Section 1: [First part no change, clarification part added by lawyer to show directors serving as Secretary and/or Treasurer still are directors and have voting rights -applies to Dianne and Bruce]
Two English corrections; then changing the words to allow the Secretary and Treasurer to not have to be residents of Forest Ridge, and to clarify the case where Directors of the Board also serve as Secretary and/or Treasurer.
Page 5, Article VIII, Section 3: [No lawyer changes, this is our original change ]
Changed the wording to allow the officers (Pres and VP) after serving 4 consecutive terms to serve in the other officer positions. This fixes a situation where the Vice Pres has served 4 consecutive terms as VP. Then he/she has 4 years of experience as VP and wants to run as Pres. Under our current By-Laws, he can't. He would have to wait 2 years to be eligible to be elected Pres. The proposed wording change allows him/her to be elected (without a 2-year wait).
Page 7, Article XIV, Miscellaneous: [No lawyer changes]
Changing the "IN WITNESS WHEREOF" date to our Annual Members Meeting October 4, 2018, where the homeowners will vote on these changes.
