Why We Need Your Vote for the Bylaws

– by Mark Weinmann, CHOA Board President

In an HOA like ours, our governing documents are important in guiding us on how we operate.  Like many other things in our lives, when something becomes outdated and less effective, it becomes time to update it.  This is our current situation.

Our by-laws, which put forth how we operate as an association in many areas, are not current with state law nor are they aligned with best practices.  The Association has worked with our legal counsel spending considerable time and effort to address this.  In doing so, our draft by-laws now reflect current law and best practices.

For example, we’ve lowered our annual meeting quorum so we can act more efficiently.  We’ve also streamlined our balloting and election procedures to make them more manageable and effective.  We need your support and STRONGLY recommend that you vote “YES” on the revised by-laws.

If you have any questions about them, I urge you to reach out to me by email at  We thank you for your support!
