Eagle Springs Association Inc. Newsletter


The Board of Directors of the Eagle Springs Association, Inc. is writing to communicate the process for the annual election of Directors to the Board and to update you on the upcoming annual meeting.

The 2022 election process is based on the 2008 By-Laws. The 2008 By-Laws are the 1999 original By-Laws with two additions. Please see the Association’s website to download and review copies of such governing documents.

After a review of the Association’s governing documents, the Association’s new legal counsel, Nowack Howard, advised the Board that the 2016 amendments to the By-Laws were not validly passed and are therefore unenforceable because there was not a sufficient number of votes in favor of the amendment as required under Article IV, Section 4.06 of the 1999 original By-Laws. The 2016 amendments were presented and voted on based on legal advice at the time. In light of NowackHoward’s advice, the Board intends to move forward and use the 1999 original By-Laws, as amended by the 2008 amendment (“Current By-Laws”), as the governing By-Laws of the Association. Specifically, the Board intends to govern the upcoming election of the Board pursuant to the Current By-Laws. The board of directors’ election timeline is tentatively as follows:
