Nusatsum Property Owners Association calls for new members to take over Society

The NPOA (Nusatsum Property Owners Association) Society is now at a crossroads in its function.

Dear Editor,

The NPOA (Nusatsum Property Owners Association) Society is now at a crossroads in its function. We have completed a seven year process of getting the issue of flood prevention back on the table with the commitment of the CCRD.

The median age of our current board of directors is 60. Due to this fact, they have given notice of stepping back from the governance of the Society. It’s time for a younger group of folks, representing the whole of the Valley, to take the Society to a new level of function with a name change and further development of the fifty/one hundred year mitigation plan for the valley.

The CCRD needs a volunteer group that is willing to work in partnership with them, supporting and moving the plan forward.

Please contact the NPOA via email “nusatsumpropertyowners@gmail.com” with your input and offer. Please give this some thought, discuss it with your neighbors and step forward with a commitment to serve this task; it is long overdue and I do not have to tell you, more urgent than ever.

I will be stepping back from the Executive Director role and carrying on with other community service projects. Thank you to all those who have “stayed the course,” in particular the directors of the NPOA: Gordie Gibbs, Oran Hoppe, Joan Cole, Wes Abel, and Keith Epp.

Sincerely,

Marvin Schmunk

Nusatsum Property Owners Association
