Reminder – Thursday Deadline for Candiates

SIPOA needs your help!  Thursday, October 1, 2020 is the deadline to apply for the Board of Directors.

The Seabrook Island Property Owners Association is very fortunate in that it is an effective, well managed, self-governed entity. Self-governance gives each property owner an opportunity to participate in guiding the Association forward. Self-governance allows property owners, as members of their elected Board of Directors, to represent all members of the community and create policies and strategic plans for the current and future needs of the Association. SIPOA’s continued success is dependent on committed property owners who are willing to dedicate their time. Without these dedicated, individual representatives, property owners would have far less impact on the strategic operation of the Island.

The SIPOA Nominating Committee is on the lookout for individuals who want to be part of the solution by serving on the Board of Directors or the Nominating Committee. In February 2021, we need to fill four Board positions each for three-year terms, one Board position for a two-year term, and two Nominating Committee positions for two-year terms.

We are seeking individuals for the Board of Directors who:
– have the ability to work well with others
– understand that all Board members are required to serve in the best interest of all property owners
– have the willingness and ability to commit the required time for Board and Committee duties
– have the ability to evaluate issues and work collaboratively to recommend solutions
– have skillsets, volunteer, board, or professional experience that benefit the community

For the Nominating Committee we need candidates who:
– have a broad social network and a willingness to put in the time needed to identify outstanding candidates
– have an understanding of the roles the Board of Directors and SIPOA committees play in Association governance
– have the ability to evaluate the suitability of candidates to best meet the qualifications for the Board of Directors and Nominating Committee

If interested, click here to find the application form(s) and other information regarding the candidate selection process.

SIPOA Nominating Committee:

Cindy Brown
Greg Iaconis
Melodie Murphy
Julia Thogmartin
Warren Kimball (Chair)

Update on Absentee Ballots

On Wednesday, September 23, Tidelines published an article about the changes in Absentee Voting. One of the changes concerned the necessity of having a witness sign the ballot before you mail it in.

According to WIS News, a federal lawsuit was filed asking for the required witness signature on an absentee ballot to be waived due to coronavirus concerns. The US District Court waived the signature requirement, but this decision was appealed. The US Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals granted their appeal on Thursday, so the requirement stands that a witness is required. Click here to read the entire article.

Due to this new ruling, we advise everyone to have their ballot witnessed. The witness can be anyone: a friend, a neighbor, a spouse, etc. The ballots will begin to be mailed out on October 3 to the people that have applied for one.

  • If you haven’t applied for an absentee ballot, click here to find out about applying for a ballot.
  • If you have already applied for a ballot, click here to find out the status of your application.

A Message from SEADOG’s Board of Directors

It has recently come to the attention of the SEADOG’s Board that several dogs who regularly visit the beach have come down with kennel cough. Kennel cough is a highly contagious respiratory illness that is much like the human cold and can cause severe coughing in our canine family members.

Most of the dogs who have become ill are up to date on their vaccines, including bordetella (the standard kennel cough vaccine). Unfortunately, as some of you may be aware, the bordetella vaccine covers a majority, but not 100%, of the causes of kennel cough. Kennel cough is highly contagious and spreads by close contact and the sharing of toys and water/food bowls.

Common symptoms of kennel cough include; a strong cough (often with a “honking” sound), a runny nose, sneezing, lethargy, loss of appetite, and a low fever. The SEADOG’s Board of Directors wants to pass this information along in order to try to stop the spread.

Dogs experiencing any of the above symptoms should be isolated from other dogs. If your dog does show any of the above symptoms, we would recommend that you contact your veterinarian and follow their advice. We hope that this will help limit the number of pets that become ill. Thank you.
