In my numerous recent conversations with GFA Members, it has become very apparent that at least some GFA Members do not understand what is required to vote at the AGM, which will be held this Saturday, August 31 starting at 09:00 in the Newcomb Central School auditorium. I hope the following will help:

The currently sitting GFA board recognizes ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ง๐™š๐™š separate types of GFA Members:

1.) Voting Members: These are lot owners who have not only paid their annual dues, but have also paid to the GFA what the currently sitting GFA board euphemistically calls an additional โ€œinitiation feeโ€, thereby ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ ๐‘–๐‘›๐‘” their right to vote. I only wish I was kidding.

2.) Associate Members. These are lot owners who have paid their annual dues, but have, for whatever reason, NOT paid to the GFA an additional โ€œinitiation feeโ€, and thereby nฬณoฬณtฬณ ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ ๐‘’๐‘‘ their right to vote. I again only wish I was kidding.

3.) NON-Members: These are lot owners who, for whatever reason, have nฬณoฬณtฬณ paid their dues, and are therefore barred from membership in the GFA altogether, and therefore also barred (as either a Member or a Guest of a Member) from enjoying the benefits of the Flow and the surrounding lands. At least thatโ€™s the theory.

Simply paying your annual dues absolutely does ๐‘ต๐‘ถ๐‘ป entitle anyone to vote on anything, under the currently sitting GFA board. If you own your lot but have not ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ ๐‘’๐‘‘ your right to vote from the GFA, you are NOT a Voting Member, you are merely an Associate Member, which gives you the right to enjoy the Flow and our leased land, attend GFA-sponsored soirees (always soooooo pleasant, as long as you donโ€™t question ANYTHING or even HINT at suggesting alternatives) and to speak at meetings, but gives you absolutely ๐™‰๐™Š real say in the functioning of the GFA, by 100% depriving you of your ability to vote.

Yes, in 2019.

Yes, in The United States of America.

Yes, the currently sitting GFA board actually requires you to ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ ๐‘’ your right to vote.

Please let that one sink in for a moment.

We really CAN do MUCH better.

Thank you very much for your DEEPLY appreciated support!! :-)
