Board
 
Overview
 
Our board consists of five unit owners who are elected each year at the annual meeting in October or November.
 
These owners volunteer their time to make budget, policy, and project decisions for Windgate II. They also oversee and direct the company that manages Windgate II. When making decisions, board members draw on the reserve study, which documents all physical assets of Windgate II.
 
At the 2017 annual meeting (Nov 2), outgoing President Jennifer Commander gave this report. Geoffrey Hughes also delivered remarks, which include an explanation of what HOA fees pay for.

Issues
 
Jonathan Watson is the Windgate II ombudsman. He is the liaison between the owners and the board and is a resource for owners to discuss concerns and share ideas and feedback to the board. Jonathan can be reached at jonathanwatsonwgii@gmail.com or (703) 409-7616. Read more.
 
If there's an issue that you think the board should know about, the best way to do that is to tell the board in person at a board meeting. Meetings are held once a month, usually on the second Tuesday of the month. If there's an issue you’d like discussed at a meeting, let the community manager and ombudsman know, and it will be added to the agenda. There is also time during meetings when you can ask questions and make suggestions.
