Celebration Florida Voting Member Task Force duties and responsibilities
Celebration Florida Voting Member Task Force what do they do and how are they elected?
The Celebration voting members work as a group to recruit, train and organize the voting members so they can more effectively serve Celebration.
The Celebration Charter mandates that the neighborhoods elect representatitives annually called voting members and AVM or alternate voting members.
The group is given various duties within the Charter and assists the will of the homeowners by reducing the scope of representation and allowing the availability of a quorum to conduct business.
Each voting member is accountable to about 85 home owners ( some neighborhoods are as small as 14 units and others 120).
The hope is the voting member is a more responsive public servant compared to the CROA director who represents all 9000 + homeowners and is elected bi-annually.
The only specified meeting in the public charter is a Sept. annual meeting, but the current group decided to organize quarterly discussions to share ideas and concerns.
These meetings are announced and all homeowners are invited to attend and participate.
This year there were two meetings held that had guest speakers covering issues of incorporation, management contracts and charter training.
The agenda is published in advance and a strict time schedule adhered to.
Celebration is still growing and the voting member task force feels it is more effective if the Charter is viewed as a living document which is reviewed and changed as necessary. They also have the authority to change the rules with the Directors.
