2014 Board of Governors Election
Another important time is upon unit owners of Southport. The annual election of members of the Board of Governors as well as amendments or changes to the by- laws will be on the ballot this year.
The ballots are tentatively slated to be mailed out to unit owners early in September with the final results announced at the Southport On Cape Cod Condominium Association Annual Meeting in October. Unit owners can and are urged to vote online if they so desire.
Over 50% of the unit owners will have to vote on the Board of Governors members for the election to be official, while any changes or amendments to by-laws will require over 66% of the unit owners to approve.
In order to give unit owners the opportunity to understand the importance of the amendments or changes to the by-laws, one Town Meeting Format event has been scheduled. Meanwhile there will be two separate events where candidates will speak and meet unit owners of Southport.
The following are the three events planned for this year’s election:
