Hello, Tungjatjeta, Bonjour, Hola, Olá, Guten Tag, Salaam Alekum, Laba diena, Shalom, Ciào.
As your new President of the Regency Tower Association, I would like to begin by thanking each and every one of you who voted for me, and the Board for selecting me as the President. For those of you who did not vote for me, I hope I can convince you that the right choice was made. My number one goal as your new President will be to mend fences and put everyone on the same team.
I’m looking forward to an open policy of records and ideas. Our condominium has such an abundance of talented residents (attorneys, contractors, accountants, etc), that I am eagerly looking forward to getting input from these resources. I plan to implement a once a month “lobby forum”, in which all residents can talk one on one with me with their compliments, suggestions, ideas and heaven forbid…complaints, that will improve the cohesiveness of the Regency Tower. We will try to consider all ideas and determine how viable they are. We will also return to the once a month board meetings during the year, except the 3 months of summer, so that we can keep all residents up to date on Board decisions.
Please, be patient. A successful transition will take a little while, but rest assured that your Board of Directors will be working hard to maintain a level of gracious living of which we can all be proud. Hopefully, we can make the Regency Tower the friendliest building on the Galt Ocean Mile!
The Treasurer referred back to the information in the March 17, 2011 Board Minutes. (Reported financial details are available to Regency Tower owners in our newsletter, the “Regency Tower Times”. - editor)

Announcements -The President announced that owners do not give orders or instructions to employees. If they have anything to say, it should be put in writing, hand it in and it will be dealt with.
