We encourage all members to attend our meetings, voice your opinions and get involved. It is only by letting the HLIA know your concerns that we can address them. The HLIA Board is made up of your neighbors acting in the best interest of all the residents in our community.
At the HLIA board meeting held on September 29, 2008, the board unanimously passed the motion that “the HLIA have one meeting, open to the membership, with voting done by the Board at that meeting.”
Based on the current HLIA bylaws, the only stipulation regarding meetings are that general meetings are held at least once a quarter and board meetings are held at least once a quarter. In addition, seven officers and directors constitute a quorum for board meetings.
