I have proven business experience, both as a tech professional and small business owner. I have been a leader for project teams in the tech industry, and have managed the selection, installation, and implementation of $25+ million projects. I have attended almost every board meeting for the last year, and many of the committee meetings.
Financial Discipline - We need to pause and understand the unprecedented changes to the economy, and make prudent choices as to how our association dollars are spent to provide the best value for our investments. Drive true and accurate understanding of costs and income for amenities. Ensure future amenity improvements are planned with financial discipline.
Controlling operating costs - While we have been focusing almost exclusively for the last year on the new ski lodge project, there have been huge changes to economic conditions that will also affect TD’s financial health, including increasing labor costs, materials, commercial insurance, food and consumables, utilities and inflation. Smart operational choices and IT investments to cut down on overhead should be implemented.
Development of a 5, 10 and 20 year improvement plan for each amenity. Use solicited member input in ranking choices for proritization of projects. Publish to all members so that the process is truly transparent, and members feel involved in the decision making process. In the past voting members were not viewed as the customers, and their satisfaction as to value for assessment dollar has not been the driving force for determining direction for the association. Previous member surveys included 10,000+ voters, and thus have not been the viewpoint of the voting homeowner.
Improving Tahoe Donner amenities in a financially responsible way while keeping assessment increases affordable for all members. Use member’s inputs to provide the best value for the benefit of all members and their families.
