Insurance Workshop on 10/31/16 at 5:00 PM (before Annual Meeting)

All FSH owners are invited to attend a workshop on insurance issues immediately preceding the Annual Meeting.

Monday, October 31, 2016 — at 5pm in the Lobby

Letter Sept. 22, 2016: Three (3) Open Board Positions

This also gives more owners awareness of how the building operates. Since the decision is made by a vote of the owners, it would be helpful if the voters understood more about candidate’s views on important topics such as these below. You may not have enough information to have specific opinions but you do have values that guide you in one general direction or another. Your vision for the building is important. What would you like to accomplish if elected to the Board? These topics are only examples.
