I don't own at NCV so I'm not giving an opinion on the OP's qualifications, but I'll say "good luck" and also mention a couple things jumping out at me from this thread:
- Geert, your TUG name is "concerning" for two reasons. First, any User Names with "@" or ".com" or similar tags invite bot activity and other nefarious social media harvesting. Second, the "@Marriott_NCV" tag may invite scrutiny from Marriott corporate because it could be wrongly construed as an official company contact, not a good look under normal circumstances but especially if you're running for a board position. You might not agree but if you do, take a look at the "How Can I Change My TUGBBS Username?" section of this site's Bulletin Board Help
section. (If you do change your name, let me know and I'll edit this thread to remove any references to your first Username.)
- Joe, your, "I don't usually vote" is worrisome! I get that it feels like annual voting is effectively useless, especially when the only items on the ballots are BOD positions, but consider at least this - Marriott is legally-mandated to hold Annual Meetings that require participation which satisfies a stipulated quorum. Depending on where the resort is located the governing docs stipulate that in the event a quorum is not reached, Marriott is required to re-schedule the Annual Meeting at least one more time (and possibly a third.) Re-scheduling legally requires a second (and possibly third) mailing of the materials that were printed/sent out for the first, in addition to whatever other costs are incurred for booking the venue as well as the travel costs of any corporate, resort BOD and/or parliamentary officials who are required to attend.
Everybody - over the years there've been reports on TUG of mailings from Marriott begging for proxies to be submitted because there's been a danger of quorums not being met (BeachPlace Towers comes to mind recently) - don't be responsible for incurring additional unnecessary costs that are legally assumed by you and your fellow owners! Take a few minutes and VOTE your proxies!
