How can we make Board meetings more productive and welcoming?
We must hold Board members accountable for professional behavior. The Board sets the tone. Any disagreements should be settled with calm, positive discussion. Board members need to prepare for meetings by researching the issues at hand before sitting at the table. If a matter cannot be settled at that meeting, it should become an action item for the next meeting, with someone tasked to follow up. Homeowners who bring an item to open forum must be treated with respect, and the work of dedicated committee members must be acknowledged. Let’s be kind to each other.

How many Board members are there?
The full Board has 7 directors, each serving a two-year term. In odd years 3 directors are elected, and in even years 4 directors are elected.

Why do you say such negative things about the current Board?
We try to be objective when describing what we’ve seen and what others have reported. The negativity you hear is often caused by the frustration of witnessing Woodside’s decline and seeing its Board not taking corrective action. We believe the current Board has created an atmosphere of divisiveness which doesn’t allow for a dialogue between the Board and owners and residents. That isn’t healthy for our community. We believe we all deserve a better vision.
