 Special committee begins review of Condominium Documents

In October, the Board of Directors appointed an ad hoc committee to review the Condominium Documents and make recommendations to the Board for any amendments that should be considered. It is an important duty of the Board to review the documents every few years to ensure that they comply with changes in state and local laws and to consider changes that would serve the ownership. Such a review was most recently undertaken by a committee that concluded its work in 2009. The report of the 2009 By-Laws Review Committee recommended five amendments to the By-Laws, all of which were adopted.

This year‚s review will involve a lengthy and deliberate process and any proposed amendments are expected to be presented to the Co-Owners at the October, 2015 Annual Meeting. The committee welcomes suggestions and input from all owners. You can contact Committee Chair, Christopher Gable at christopher.gable@wfadvisors.com. Also serving on the committee are Director Jack Florio and past Presidents David Bartholomew, Brenda Kaplan and Joel Stein. Current President Connie Clark and the Board‚s independent legal counsel serve as ex-officio members.

 Changes for Condominium Sales Operations now in effect

Host Hotels and Resorts, Inc. recently announced that the sales and marketing of Condominium units is now handled by First Financial Equity Corporation, a full service licensed securities broker with offices in Scottsdale.
