A Note from PIHA’s BOD President – May 2023
Greetings to PIHA members!
Our May Board meeting was well attended. We are encouraged to see participation at our monthly board meetings and would like to see it continue. Thank you to those that attended and for your input.
Our new membership cards are going like hotcakes! If you have not received your ID yet, please be aware that you must present pictured ID (driver license) when getting your new card. This new membership card is required to access the Clubhouse and will shortly be required to access other Association facilities.
The Board approved the purchase of a rowing machine to be added to the fitness room. Thank you, Drew, for your input regarding our fitness room.
Repairs from the May 2022 hail storm should begin soon. Many members have asked why the repairs have not started before now. Well, Jacob was negotiating with the insurance company to ensure that we received enough coverage to replace/repair the massive damage that was done.
Our Security Committee services have been decreasing a little each year – possibly due to the emergence of such products as ‘Ring’. Due to decreased members requesting this service, a decision was made to discontinue this committee permanently.
The campground is now open – Welcome back Phil and Jenise! A huge “Thank You” to Kurt Weir for donating 4 bikes to the campground.
At our April Board Meeting, a decision was made to discontinue seasonal boat dock rental effective at the end of 2023. The Association presently has 6 docks available at Grand Lake beach. At our May meeting, the Board approved the creation of a temporary committee to explore options regarding the usage of Grand Lake Docks beginning in 2024. This committee will be limited to 5 members. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please submit your name at our Annual Membership meeting on June 24 or via email to email@example.com. The committee members will be announced after the Annual Membership meeting. The Board requests this committee to have recommendations presented at the August 10, 2023 Board meeting. Therefore, your commitment to this committee would require that you be available to meet as a group probably 3-4 times between June 25 and Aug 10.
Board elections are right around the corner. There are 8 candidates vying to fill 3 positions on the Board for a 3 year term beginning right after the Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, June 24. Your ballot (or ballots if you own more than one lot) will be mailed by May 24. You can mail them back, drop them off at the clubhouse or bring them to the Annual Meeting.
Speaking of the Annual Meeting, please put it on your calendar to attend. We will have the Annual Financial Audit Report from our CPA firm, a year end report from both the President and Executive Director, as well as updates from all Association committees. The date is Saturday, June 24 beginning at 11am at the Clubhouse. Hope to see you there!
President, PIHA Board of Directors
