Annual Meeting Summary
Posted on Mar 24th, 2021
The 2021 Annual Meeting of the Loch Alpine Improvement Association was a virtual success.  Approximately 100 member households logged onto the online webinar meeting.  LAIA Board President Brian Daugherty hosted the meeting with the assistance of the other officers and directors.  Treasurer Lucy Cohen reported on the Association’s budget and finances, explaining the reasons that the annual assessment should remain $775, as it has for the previous three years.
 
While the webinar format was not conducive to interactive participation for all attendees, members did have the opportunity to submit questions for the Board and committee chairs to answer.  
 
The absentee votes and proxies were tallied and the results announced to the members present:
  • The annual assessment of $775 was approved.
  • Candidates elected to the Board of Directors are Bob Sendra (incumbent) and new directors Allison Bishop and Bryan Cole
The Board is grateful to all the candidates for their interest in serving the Association.
 
The annual Loch Alpine Award for exemplary volunteer service to the community was awarded to Sheila Waterhouse for her work chairing the Communications Committee over the past few years.  (See more details on the Loch Alpine website home page.)
 
Selected by a random number generator, the two winners of the drawing for a 50% reduction in their annual assessment are Ken and Renee Durrant (lot 263) and Werner and Andrea Lueken (lot 138).
 
Summer fireworks display date is June 26, rain date 6/27.
 
The Association, no longer publishing a paper copy resident directory, maintains its current directory (by lot number and by last name) in the Documents section of the LAIA website.
 
We are looking forward to the next Annual Meeting in person -- with coffee and cookies.
Board Bulletin March 19
Posted on Mar 16th, 2021
We Need More Ballots by March 22 to achieve the required quorum for the meeting!
 
Please Vote Now, Everybody
The Loch Alpine Improvement Association Annual Meeting is March 24, less than two weeks away.  This year’s meeting will be held online only and all voting completed by absentee ballot.  All absentee ballots must be received by Monday, March 22.  We need your absentee votes, or proxy, to reach meeting quorum requirements.  If we do not receive enough ballots (or proxies) for quorum, the meeting will be suspended until the needed number of ballots is attained -- thus postponing the vote count for the annual assessment and Board candidates.
 
The absentee ballot and meeting materials are in the Annual Meeting packet that was mailed to you.  Ballots may be dropped off at one of three Loch Alpine officer addresses listed on the ballot; or sent by fax to (734) 663-0809, or scanned and emailed to Select Community Management at management@thecondopros.com.

Yard Waste Pick-up Starts April 6
Seasonal weekly yard waste pick-up will begin Tuesday, April 6. Be sure your material is placed street-side no later than 7 a.m.  Yard waste may be placed in large, craft/paper bags or loose in your own, reusable container with a "yard waste" or "compost" sticker on the container (available from GFL or Scio Township).  Please do not tape yard bags -- fold them closed or leave them open at the top.  GFL will also pick up properly bundled branches no thicker than 3 inches in diameter tied in bundles no greater than 4 feet in length and 18 inches in diameter.  
 
For a better looking Loch Alpine, please remember that yard waste is placed out, as with trash containers and other collectables, no sooner than the day before trash pickup day; and empty containers are to be removed that day. Thank you, from LAIA Grounds Committee. 
 
Community Yard Sale Postponed
Due to ongoing concerns about outdoor gatherings and public health into the spring, the LAIA Board of Directors and the event coordinator have determined that the annual Loch Alpine Community Yard Sale should not be held in May.  We are hopeful that the event will be rescheduled for sometime in late summer or early fall.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.

The Loch Alpine Award
LOCH ALPINE IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION LOCH ALPINE AWARD
 
The Loch Alpine Award was established by the Loch Alpine Improvement Association to recognize a person or persons who have demonstrated Exemplary efforts, Commitment and Dedication to the Loch Alpine Community.
 
In 2021, Sheila Waterhouse was recognized for leading our Communications Committee since April, 2018, and in that time she worked diligently to:
  • Set up processes to simplify our regular Board Bulletin
  • Cleaned up our email lists and set up processes with our management company to upload new resident information
  • Provided training to committee chairs and Board members on the use of the Google drive for better efficiency
  • Led a subset of the committee to complete a special outreach to residents who did not have emails on file, which also led to numerous individual arrangements to resolve these issues
  • Enhanced the look and frequency of our regular communications and website for Loch Alpine residents
Thank you, Sheila, for all of your contributions to our communication efforts for Loch Alpine residents.
 
The Loch Alpine Improvement Association is proud to have honored recipients of the Loch Alpine Award since 2001 (prior to 2013, the award was designated the Sendra Award).  The previous recipients can be found here.
