Board
 
Our board consists of five unit owners who are elected each year at the annual meeting in October. 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 2016 annual meeting (Oct 20), outgoing President Geoff Hughes gave this report. Owners elected 2 new board members: Patricia Walter and Brian Cooney. Three members will continue to serve on the board in 2017: Jennifer Commander, Geoff Hughes, and Jonathan Watson.
 
Thanks to all board members, past and present, for for volunteering your time to serve our community and make Windgate II a great place to live!

Ombudsman, Issues
 
The board has created a new position of ombudsman that will be filled by Jonathan Watson. As ombudsman, Jonathan will serve as a liaison between the owners and the board and will be a resource for owners to discuss concerns and to 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.
