The committee, each year, helps stimulate community interest in the Board of Directors election.
According to Resolution M-09, the committee must “solicit candidates from a broad spectrum of the Ocean Pines membership, provide information to, or otherwise assist potential candidates with the application process.”
The committee also must verify that all applications received go to the Association Secretary for validation of eligibility.
Ocean Pines Bylaws require that a Search Committee be appointed by the Association President and approved by the Board of Directors by Feb. 1 each year.
Association President Doug Parks encouraged homeowners to consider volunteering.
“There are no specific qualifications to become a member of the committee, other than a pledge to discuss the issue with members of the community and see if there is any interest in someone becoming a candidate for the Board,” he said. “Two positions are up for election this year and, per the bylaws, the committee needs to attempt to get [at least] four candidates. Any interested parties should contact Doug Parks at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
