Call for Candidates | 2023

SIPOA needs your help!

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 the 2023 Seabrook Island Property Owners Association election, candidates are needed for four (4) three-year terms on the Board of Directors and two (2) two-year term positions on the Nominating Committee.

The deadline to submit your Candidate profile form is October 1, 2022

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 the skillsets, volunteer, board, or professional experience that benefit the community
  • Have been a property owner before October 1, 2021

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
  • Have been a property owner before October 1, 2021

Vision Statement
