Vicky Glover Candidate Statement
Updated: Sep 14, 2020
I AM A FULL TIME FOOTHILLS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION RESIDENT, I am 95% retired with the time and desire to serve our community. I see and know delayed repairs increase costs to us as an HOA.
RELATED EXPERIENCE & SERVICE: City Zoning Board of Appeals, City Historic Preservation Board, Founding Board Member of a Neighborhood Association and FCA Bylaw Committee. Multiple years of taking HOA classes sponsored by FCA attorneys as well as other leading HOA attorneys in the state of AZ. San Simeon Condominium BOD, Landscape and Clubhouse Committees. We need members for the BOD willing to be educated and informed about ongoing changes in state statutes and how these changes affect our HOA.
BUSINESS & JOB-RELATED EXPERIENCE: I know how to manage money, financially sound, no debt, foreclosures, short sale, bankruptcies, great credit score, own multiple properties within and outside Arizona.
For years, I have been following the Association’s activities and regularly attending Board meetings.
Last year, I spoke at the Annual Meeting stating that money in the Associations account is not our greatest asset.
We as community members come from many walks of lives, with skills and expertise in a multitude of areas. By reaching out to the community and encouraging members to get involved, the Association can tap into the most valuable resource our community has.
If elected to the Board, I will strive to bring members into the work of the Association.
WAYS TO ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY
Create committees, such as the Bylaws Amendment Committee (on which I serve) and the ad hoc committee working on the 14th Way and Dry Creek erosion issue. These are great models of what can be done.
One of the first new committees should be charged with revising the Etiquette Policy adopted last year so as to make it more ‘member friendly’. This alone would help welcome member involvement.
I also propose periodic meetings, perhaps quarterly, where members could bring their issues to the Board’s attention. As currently formulated, the Board’s monthly business meetings simply do not facilitate in-depth discussion of key issues.
Another big step toward transparency would be for the Association’s management company to make non-sensitive documents routinely available on the website. This would benefit members, and it would spare the Association the time and expense of processing document requests.
Community involvement with complete and easily accessible transparency for our community will be the tools needed to ensure the Association overcomes its current problems and is able to move forward.
I was a strong supporter of the Bylaw reform campaign. The Bylaws Reform Amendments vote in the affirmative was a very important step to ensure the Foothills Community Association moves in the right direction.
With the passing of the Bylaw reforms, it is now required a Election Policy and Procedure be written. At the last regular HOA meeting I volunteered and have been selected to serve on the committee putting together that policy.
