Dear Fellow Owners,
This notification is being sent to inform you that the Board of Directors has accepted John "JB" Ali's resignation from the Board at a special meeting held on May 28, 2020. The directorship roles going forward are as follows.
President – Barbara Turley-McIntyre
Vice President – Dave Cornelison
Secretary – Charles DeJean
Treasurer – Doug Rousell
Over the coming weeks, the Board will consider how best to replace the fifth Board position. We assure you that operations at the resort are stable with the strong leadership of Sal Azemi, our General Manager, his team and the Board.
We thank you, as owners, for your continued support as we work through the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Be on the lookout for an announcement coming tomorrow, Saturday, May 30th, about our re-opening in June.
Here is John Ali's letter to owners:
After serving for 31 months, and giving the matter much thought, I have decided to step down from the Board of Directors. This decision was not taken lightly by me. It was a personal decision and does not in any way reflect negatively on our resort, operations, finances, or any fiscal issues whatsoever.
Despite the challenges related to the pandemic which lie ahead, I feel we are in a very good place, have strong plans for managing the reopening, and certainly have strong Board volunteers in place. I simply have other matters that I want focus on. And I will miss the role for sure.
I have thoroughly enjoyed serving our resort. While there is never a perfect time to step away, I believe we are in good shape and have accomplished some very positive things. We have successfully completed the renovation on time and on budget, improved operational processes, cost controls, and have made critical changes at the GM level to improve the management of the resort, to name a few. While there are always challenges ahead, I leave with confidence in the leadership and our path forward.
I wish to thank the vast majority of owners who have supported me and the Board. Without that support, many of the changes would not have been possible. I also want to thank my fellow Board colleagues for their support in working with me over this time. I have had the wonderful opportunity to get to know many of my fellow owners on a personal basis. I remain available to assist and serve as needed going forward.
Stay safe and healthy!
John "JB" Ali
