Election Committee Seeking Candidates for POA Board of Directors

Want to make a difference in Big Canoe?

The POA Board of Directors presents Property Owners with the best opportunity to positively impact our community.

The terms of two of our current directors – Amy Tropfenbaum and Bob Littell – expire in December. The seven-seat Board is looking to fill those positions in the 2023 fall election.

Why run for the Board?

Bob Crouch, who served as president for four years while he was on the POA Board in 2005-2010 and 2020-21, calls it an incredible way to have an impact on the community.

“Contributing to Big Canoe by working on the Board was very fulfilling,” Crouch says. “It meant so much to me that I ended up serving Board terms in two different decades.”

Board newcomer Mark Green explains that “the Board does really important work for Big Canoe. I wanted to serve my community and I’ve been impressed by the big issues that are so smartly debated. Makes me proud to be a part of it!”

Outgoing Board member Amy Tropfenbaum, who served as president last year, emphasized how gratifying the experience has been.

“As my term comes to a close,” she says, “I’ve been reflecting on how rewarding it is to have contributed to the betterment of Big Canoe. Serving on the Board is a satisfying and interesting experience. It’s been an honor to serve the community we all love.”

To go over the campaign process and answer any questions from those interested in running, the Election Committee is holding an informational meeting from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 5 at the Canoe Lodge. POA General Manager Scott Auer and Board members will also be in attendance.

Candidate packages can be picked up at the event – and afterward from Elaine Fitzgerald or Jayne Hagan in the POA offices in the Canoe Lodge.

To qualify, candidates are required to have owned property in Big Canoe for at least twenty-four consecutive months, be at least 21 years of age, and be current in all respects of their POA billing account.

Filing for candidacy ends at 5 p.m. on June 30.

If you have any immediate questions or would like additional information, please contact Election Committee members Fred Schultz, Liz Littleton, Cynthia Cornelssen, Jim Braley, Karen Steinberg or Bob Chestney at election@bigcanoepoa.org.
