Big Canoe POA Board of Directors member Lou Stephenson announced her resignation today, stepping down six months before the completion of a three-year term.
Stephenson and her husband recently sold their Big Canoe home to ultimately move closer to family and friends, she said. They will continue living in Big Canoe for several months.
“It is with personal regret that due to no longer being classified as a Property Owner, I will be not be able to fulfill the remaining months of my term representing those who elected me to the Board of Directors,” Stephenson said.
On Stephenson’s service on the Board, President Candace Robertson said: “We appreciate the time Lou has devoted to the Board for the past two and a half years and we wish her well in her next chapter.”
Stephenson’s position will remain vacant until it is filled in the upcoming election. On Dec. 4, 2021, an incoming Board member will fill the vacancy when they begin a three-year term.
“My time on the Board has been a pleasure,” Stephenson said. “I’ve enjoyed the professionalism of the Board members I have served with over the last two and a half years and I can attest I have learned more about the day-to-day operations of Big Canoe than I thought possible.
“The residents of Big Canoe should be proud of the efforts of the Board members they have elected, their willingness to volunteer the personal time required to serve this community, and their dedication to ensuring Big Canoe operates in a competent and fiscally responsible way,” she added. “The POA Board of Directors are focused on successfully managing the challenges of this community. It is not an easy job.”
