Management Report – Agenda Items


Instant Alert System

Nanette informed the Board that we anticipate having the Instant Alert System ready to go by December 1, 2017.  A letter will soon be mailed to the Members with information on how this works.  Also, a letter will be mailed to Members that have not signed up yet.  Testing of the system will be done.


Moles wants to see if we can say a “no” response means “yes”.  Members can opt out if they choose.  Nanette to research.
