Notice of AAPOA Board Elections in July, 2018

Every year three AAPOA board seats are up for election. The election will be held at our July 7th General Membership Meeting. The term is for three years. The seats are currently held by Joe DeMarco, Paul Longenderfer and Phil Dooley. Joe isn’t running again and the others probably will run for reelection. There is at least one vacancy to fill.  You can be a part time or full time resident. There are about 5 board meetings and 2 General Membership Meetings (one in July and one in the fall) a year. Any AAPOA member who might consider this important position should send a bio (president@ausableacres.org)  by April 1, 2018 that can go in the spring issue of our newsletter. If you wish to discuss the role of a board member, or have any other questions, please contact the AAPOA at (518) 217-8519.  Thanks for your consideration.

Loyd Brewer, Pat Levine and Rosemary Barry are not running again, having served on the board for many years. This year there are two people who will be running for two of the seats. There is still one vacancy to fill.  You can be a part time or full time resident. There are about 5 board meetings and 2 General Membership Meetings (one in July and one in the fall) a year. I would ask any AAPOA member who might consider this important position to send me a bio (president@ausableacres.org)  by April 1st that can go in the spring issue of our newsletter.

Happy New Year (and news updates)

The AAPOA board would like to wish everyone in AuSable Acres a healthy, happy 2015.

We have lots of positive things to report but for now, just a few highlights. This spring we are planning to construct the LAKESIDE PAVILION for our members’ use. The foundation was poured last September. The plans will be reviewed by JLKN and then finalized. Thanks to your generosity, our fundraising is about $1,500.00 away from our goal. Donations will continue to be accepted and if we go over the goal, we will be able to connect electricity and water at the site. We hope to be able to add some picnic tables, too. You can include a donation with your membership dues.  The membership form and Pavilion Donation form are both under the Owner Resources banner on the top of the website. Please send the pavilion donation form so your donation will be recognized on a plaque to be placed in the pavilion.

DUES COLLECTION: AAPOA dues for 2015 are due in January. If you haven’t sent yours in yet, please do so this month. The form is on the website along with our address. Thank you for your support of the organization that helps to care for our piece of the Adirondacks.

2015 BOARD ELECTION There are three seats up for election at the General Membership meeting in July. They are currently being held by Joe DeMarco, Phil Dooley and Paul Longenderfer. All of them plan to run again and their bios will be in the next issue of the newsletter. There is one additional vacancy.

AAPOA Launches New Mass Email

The Board of the AAPOA is trying to improve communication between the Board and property owners within the Acres.  For many years now we have been asking people to provide us with their email addresses.  Until now we have never had the ability to use these emails to contact all members/property owners to keep them abreast of events, meetings, association business, etc.
Recently we set up an account with a well-established, reputable email marketing company called Vertical Response.  Their software will allow us to email property owners while following all legal requirements for sending emails to a large number of people.
We will never overuse this form of contacting property owners.  Our intention is to use the email system sparingly to increase awareness of upcoming events and meetings, as well as notify you of important AAPOA business.  Not only will this improve your awareness of events within the Acres, we feel it will reduce costs to the Association when contacting members.

If you did not receive the email, there are three possible reasons for this: you may not have given an email address to us, the email we have for you is not correct, or, the email is in your junk/spam folder and you will need to remove it and label it as “not junk/spam”.
If you didn’t receive the email and wish to receive emails in the future, please send an email to aapoamail@gmail.com with your correct email address.
Please note, this is not the same as the president’s email that is on the website.
