Election Committee seeking candidates to run for the POA Board of Directors

Want to make a difference in Big Canoe?

If so, the Big Canoe Election Committee is seeking qualified Property Owners to serve on the POA Board of Directors.

The terms of two of our current directors – Candace Robertson and Regis Falinski – expire in December. The seven-seat board is looking to fill those two positions in the 2022 election that takes place in the fall.

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 opportunity to make a difference in the community.

“Serving on the board is very rewarding as one can contribute significant improvements to our already wonderful Big Canoe community,” says Crouch.

Board newcomer Elton Gogolin pointed to how the Board has introduced him “to such smart, motivated individuals,” which has been “probably my best new experience since being elected.”

Outgoing Board member Candace Robertson, who served as president last year, underscored how gratified she was to leverage her nearly four decades in finance as a Board member. It “gives me great satisfaction that Big Canoe is on a solid financial foundation as we move into our second 50 years,” she says.

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 6 at the Canoe Lodge. Board members will also be in attendance.

Candidate packages can be picked up at the event – and afterward at the POA offices in the Canoe Lodge.

To qualify as a candidate, those running 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.
