HPCA Board of Directors Election
 
HPCA 2021 Board of Directors Election
 
At the beginning of each year, HPCA residents participate in the election of Directors, which have staggered  three year terms. In the year 2021, there are two Director positions up for election, so property owners may vote for two of the candidates on the ballot. Each property receives only one ballot, and may cast a vote for two of the three candidates. Cumulative voting is not allowed (i.e., an Owner of a property may not cast that property’s two votes for a single candidate).
 
Candidates
Shelly Schmitz - seeking re-election
Jill Yeager - seeking re-election
David Murray - seeking election
 
Candidate bios are in your January Krenek newsletter which you can access here:  www.krenekprinting.com/Bear-Creek
Specifically Page 4.
 
How do I vote?  
  1. Request that a ballot be sent to you. Due to COVID restrictions, this may be your preferred option. Complete the ballot application form that was sent to you with your annual fee statement, or download the form here. Owners should then send the marked, completed, and signed ballots back to the HPCA Office where they will be placed in a locked ballot box.  
  2. Once your completed ballot application form has been received by the HPCA office, you will be sent a ballot.
  3. Owners should then send the marked, completed, and signed ballots back to the HPCA Office where they will be placed in a locked ballot box.  
  4. You are not required to request that a ballot be sent prior to the election. You can vote in-person between the hours of 10am and 7pm on February 1st through February 6, 2021 at the Community Center. Please note strict social-distancing measures will be enforced during the in-person voting process.
The results will be determined by tabulating the ballots cast commencing at 7pm on Saturday, February 6, 2021. 
 
As always, if you have any questions, please contact the HPCA office:
Email: Office@BearCreekNetwork.org
Phone: 281-463-1216

DID YOU KNOW?
The HPCA Board of Directors is made up of five members whose terms last for three years.  This year two seats are up for election and there are three candidates.  Owners may cast a vote for two candidates this year, per property that is owned.
 
Board of Directors elections occur each year.  In person-voting takes place during the Monday through Saturday of the week following the January Annual Resident Meeting, which this year is January 28, 2021 at 7:30 pm.  Therefore, in-person voting at the Community Center will be Monday through Saturday, February 1 - 6, 2021 from 10am until 7pm.
 
If you will be voting in person that week, you must show proof of ownership and you will be given a ballot to fill out on the spot.  That ballot will be placed in the double locked ballot box located at the Community Center.  
 
If an owner wants to vote earlier, they must turn in a ballot application and a ballot will be given to them to fill out and drop off or mail back to the HPCA office.  Ballot applications are always included with your Annual Assessment Fee Statement, but if you need one the office can email it to you or one may be downloaded from the above "HPCA Board of Directors Election" section.
 
Only one ballot is handed out per property.  
 
The counting of the ballots begins at 7pm Saturday February 6, 2021
 
Stay well, Neighbors!
