Annual Meeting Participation

A majority of member votes must be present in person at the annual meeting to call the meeting to order. On the date of the annual meeting our 2009 membership included twelve households which represented a total of twenty-four votes. Only three households were in attendance representing six votes. This resulted in a 25% participation rate. Therefore, we did not have a quorum and the meeting could not be brought to order.
