Director Hal Katkov is resigning from the Desert Princess Palm Springs Board Effective March 27th, one day after the BOD meeting on the 26th. As Homeowner's we wish Hal the best of luck. This new board seat gives the homeowners the opportunity to have someone on the board who reflects their views and supports transparency. The board will be selecting this replacement.
Will the new board member be selected based on the relationship/views of the current board members? For example a candidate endorsed by the current board president in the election or one of the committee members chosen year after year by the board.
This would be an excellent opportunity for the board to be transparent, support the diversity of the homeowners, and respect the will of the electoral process by selecting the first runner-up, Char Bland for the open board position.
What are your thoughts?
-The election is over and the board is now asking for volunteers to join each of the committees. in the past, the president reviews the applications for committee positions and makes the decision on who will be on each of the committees.
A majority of the positions are filled by the same individuals every year.
Each of the board's committees act as advisors to the board. The committees make one or more recommendations to the board. The board will then decide either to accept, table or request further refinement from the committee.
If you feel that you have knowledge and experience and a desire to shape the future of our HOA , please submit an application for one or more of the following committees:
Architectural & Landscape
Community Design Advisory
Short Term Vacation Rental

- Getting involved in the decision making processes of the board
