Grounds Committee:

Jackie Waterfall & Latarsha Lewis

Board of Directors

Adjudicatory Panel:

Panel consists of 6 members that for privacy issues will remain anonymous – their participation has been detrimental to the correction of violations in 2010. The board’s and CAM’s work could not be done without their assistance. Board of Directors are NOT on this committee.

Involved Residents:

We also want to thank the residents who show their support by attending our Annual Meetings year after year and contact us throughout the year bringing violations to our attention. We greatly appreciate each and every one of you.

Morris Farms Annual Meeting 3-7-11Format

In order to keep tonight’s meeting on track, the board of directors will follow the agenda and will be using Robert’s Rules of Parliamentary procedures as their guideline. Tonight’s meeting will be presided over by the directors, who have the responsibility to enforce the rules and designate who is to speak at any given time.

This is a business meeting in which the board is to submit reports to the residents and it is not an open forum. However, the board has allotted time at the end of the meeting for residents to ask questions. No outbursts from the audience will be allowed. We are all adults and conduct ourselves as such. If interruptions begin, we will remove said individuals from the meeting and if voting has not taken place, said person will forfeit their right to vote.

The reports should not be lengthy and without interruptions, the meeting will process smoothly and you will have time for an open forum before adjournment at 9:00 pm.

Thank you
