Change in Manager

Dear WMVV Homeowners,

This is an exciting time for The Village as the transfer from Declarant to a Homeowner Board is soon to take place.  Change is often positive and brings with it a fresh set of eyes, ears and in this case a new and exciting list of agenda items.

I have found it a pleasure managing the Association for the past 6 years and advocating for the homeowners as we have navigated through much together.  However, given this time of great change in the Board, I felt it would benefit the Association, the new Board and the Homeowners if you are assigned a new Manager as well.

Kaitlin Draper will be taking over the management and we will work together over the next few months to acquaint her with the Association and the specifics of the needs of the Association.  She has accompanied me on numerous violation and property inspections in the past and she has helped me with the clubhouse cards and mailbox keys, as well as, other action items over the past year.

She is excited to step in as the new manager and is looking forward to working with the new board during transition, hosting “Meet the Candidates” and the action items to be addressed when the new board steps in.

Please email Kaitlin, or call her, with any questions just as you have with me.  Please note the following contact information; 928-537-1067 Ext. 1407

Again, it has been my pleasure serving all of you and getting to know many of you on a personal level.  I am not far away and Kaitlin and I work with each other on a daily basis consequently, you have a great team here at HOAMCO to serve your needs.

Kindest Regards,

Sherry Watson

INFORMAL WELCOME BACK

There will be an informal get-together in the Pavilion for the community on

Saturday, May 29 at 4 p.m.

Please come and visit with your old neighbors, meet lots of new ones, and celebrate the opening of the clubhouse.

Because of Covid-19 many of you did not have a chance to see the inside of the clubhouse during 2020.

Come and see what a beautiful facility we have here in the Village.

Walk through the clubhouse and then gather in the Pavilion to mingle with friends and neighbors.

If you choose, bring a beverage of your choice and some nibbles.

Clubhouse Opening Date

The Risk Awareness Committee formed a subcommittee to create a plan to safely open the clubhouse. The board approved the plan and the clubhouse will open on Saturday May 29. You will soon be receiving a calendar of events for your summer enjoyment.

The board is excited to be able to open the clubhouse and allow residents to resume activities. The protocols the board approved can be accessed via the Village People website under Documents, Forms and Downloads (Clubhouse Protocols for Reopening). The protocols will also be posted on the clubhouse door. If you plan to enter the clubhouse or restrooms for any reason, please abide by the rules set forth in the protocols.

Key Card Update

The new key card system has been installed and tested. Old cards will no longer access the clubhouse, bathrooms or laundry room. HOAMCO does not need the old cards. Please discard them.

In order to obtain a new card, lot owners must sign the (1) Waiver and Release and (2) Receipt of Clubhouse Rules and Regulations and access Key(s). The Receipt of Clubhouse Rules and Regulations and access Key(s) is part of the Clubhouse Rules. HOAMCO will have both available. They can also be found on the Village People website (WMVV.org) under Documents, Forms and Downloads (Waiver and Release and Clubhouse Rules). Owners will be responsible for obtaining signatures on both documents from renters. Owners will also need to provide a card to renters. No separate cards will be issued to renters.

Each lot will be limited to two (2) cards. If two cards are requested, both owners must sign the (1) Waiver and Release and (2) Receipt of Clubhouse Rules and Regulations and access Key(s). If a deposit has already been paid for the old cards, a new deposit will not be required. The deposit will be transferred. Otherwise, a $50 deposit per card will be required before cards can be issued.

Owners can begin picking up new cards observing the following schedule:

  • Wednesday May 26 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM
  • Thursday May 27 and Friday May 28 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
  • Beginning June 1st cards can be picked up during the week from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
  • Please note that HOAMCO will be closed on Monday May 31 in observation of Memorial Day

HOAMCO is located at 641 S. 20th Avenue, Show Low. If you are not going to be in Show Low during the week, you can download, print and sign the (1) Waiver and Release and (2) Receipt of Clubhouse Rules and Regulations and access Key(s) and mail it, along with your deposit (if owed) to HOAMCO at P.O. Box 4212, Show Low, AZ 85902. Your new card(s) will be mailed to you.

Reason for Interest

After many years of traveling as a full-time RVer, my husband and I have permanently settled in the village. I have been retired since 2013 and ready for the challenge the positions brings. I believe that I am highly qualified for the position as laid out in my resume. Briefly, I owned and operated two RV parks in Branson Missouri for twelve years. As owner I was responsible for all of the bookkeeping, accounting, and capital and expenditure budgeting, financing, and taxes.

Prior to purchasing my own businesses, I worked as an accountant in both a factory and headquarters setting responsible for all aspects of accounting and finance as both a manager and director. I was responsible for communicating the financial results for the organization with an emphasis on budget to actual expenditures and capital expenditure allocations. This is where I believe I can greatly assist the membership of White Mountain Vacation Village.

With my experience and eight years of college, I am well versed in GAAP and FASB which will help ensure the membership that the financial information they are receiving is up to expected standards.

Reason for Interest

After serving as Transition Chair of WMVV RSA since 2018, I am interested in an opportunity to volunteer for Board of Director service. I have significant experience in leadership and working with volunteers.  My resume will reflect success in business entrepreneurship and community service. 

Having performed the due diligence processes for transition, I feel that my knowledge of the components of WMVV is deep and will be of great value in leading the RSA during this formative period.  If elected, one of my first recommendations would be to establish a Five-year Strategic Plan.  An important element in the Plan would be the Road Management System.  My research indicates that most association budgets are in the range of 50% or more for roads. 

Additionally, I believe my aptitude in real estate related matters would also be helpful to the organization as it has been in working with the Transition Committee and recommendations made to the current Board of Directors. 

Last, the volunteer service on other Board of Directors has given me a firm foundation in understanding Bylaws and other governing documents as well as parliamentary procedures. 

My desire to give back to my community is based on the recognition of stepping up and supporting my friends, neighbors, and the lifestyle we all love here at the Village.  I believe my abilities will serve them well in making this an even better place to live. 

Thank you for your consideration of my request to serve my community in this capacity.

Reason for Interest

Since I have been involved in Homeowners Association for 17 years, I have come to realize that it is less important as to which position that I am elected to be rather being available to insure a quorum at each Board meeting. Therefore, I am not interested in any specific role, but rather a position on te Board of Directors so that we will be able to conduct business regularly and timely.

Although I am not a full-time resident at WMVV I live in Gilbert, AZ and can make the trip to Show Low in about 4 hours. We have been spending March thru October in WMVV but if I need to make extra trips outside of this nebulous range of dates, I am more than flexible and I would be ale to accommodate those dates.
