OWNER-PROXY-VOTING MYTH BUSTER
AUGUST 31, 2016
Every year in September the association mails out information to all owners. Some of those are documents that require owners to review, complete and mail back in a timely manner.
Each year there are questions that arise about the forms and how to properly complete them. Every year an owner questions the need for completing the Owners Update Form and Owner’s Certification of Use.
With these issues in mind, please check below for clarification.
|WHAT DOES “QUORUM” MEAN|
“The minimum # of owners required to hold the meeting.”
For Maui Vista, that’s > 50%.
“Box 1” – Allows you to be “counted” to achieve quorum in order to meet bylaws quorum requirements, which is >50%. Check this box, sign and return even if you plan on attending the meeting or assign your vote proxy to another individual. Please note: Owners submitting director votes are automatically counted in the quorum (you don’t have to check Box 1).
|WHAT IS A “PROXY”|
“This form extends options of ‘written authorization’ to you when you want to appoint another individual to vote on your behalf.”
“Box 2” Allows you to appoint another individual to vote on your behalf at the meeting by writing in that person’s name, you must sign and return the document for it to be valid.
“Box 3” Allows the owner to request his vote be applied along with the a vote of the Board of Directors.
“Box 4” Gives each director an equal percentage of your vote as shared.
