A beautiful morning, sun rising, roadrunners running, rabbits jumping, and new things unfolding. Making our life easier is our new website that has just been released. It was launched on August 6, 2018. Representatives from the Information Advisory Committee (IAC) and the Computer Club will be holding classes for anyone who wants help to learn how the new website works. But I have to say I found navigating and using the new site much easier than the old one.
After more than a year of work, beta testing by many, and comments from users on improvements, the new website is now online. After seeing the demo given to the Board, we all were impressed and looked forward to the new format. On August 6, after watching the sunrise, I spent time navigating through the new website. I have to say, great job to the IAC for a job more than well done. Many changes have been made to make it much easier to determine where to go for information about the HOA. As you use the new website, feel free to make suggestions because changes and improvements can be made as we go along at any time.
I want to thank the IAC for the long hours of hard work they put in to make this happen. Committee members Linda Aasen, Lin Conrad, Terry Coon, Kris Downey, Bob Firring, Claudia Marley, George Stephens, and Board Liaison Fera Mostow all worked together along with Gus Ramirez, Communications Manager, from staff. A very special thanks to the Committee Chair, Erin Smith, for the last two years of seeing this project through to reality.
This project was designed to improve communication with all residents by providing accurate information about the HOA in a timely manner. As part of this process, we are asking everyone to sign up for the email announcement system called “e-blasts.” The HOA sends out announcements weekly, and sometimes more, with information and up-to-date news regarding the HOA. These announcements can range from new items for special events, to changes in schedules, to emergency warnings, to updates on HOA business. By signing up for this service you will get all the announcements that we send out to residents on any given day.
To sign up, we need you to fill out a form. We are not allowed simply to put you on the system; State law requires you sign up for the service. We need to verify that you want us to send you such information. Some residents told us they were concerned that, by signing up for such email announcements, they would also receive all legal notices by e‑mail rather than by regular mail through the post office. This is not the case. When you sign up for the e-blast service you will only be getting announcements in your e-mail. All other legal documents will still be sent by regular mail. Sign-up forms are available on the new website or at the HOA office. Please help us communicate with you by signing up for the e-blast service today.
Thank you all for another day in paradise. It is easy to look around and know, “It doesn’t get any better than this.”
