FAQ

Why don’t members who own more than one lot get more than one vote?

Historically, the Board of Trustees has maintained that if multiple lot owners had multiple votes then real estate speculators would have an unfair advantage over members who owned only one parcel. The Board favors a policy of equal representation.

Why are there more non-resident board positions than resident board positions?

The Board of Trustees consists of nine (9) members. Of those, six (6) are non-residents members and three (3) are resident members. The combination is set to equally represent the Club’s total membership.
