Current Board of Directors (from left to right): Cheryl Jones, Claude Zeller, Tony Ogden, Cherie Plaisted, Scott Newcombe, Gene Mitchell (Not pictured: Petra Shapiro)

The Capes Homeowners Association Board of Directors is made up of 7 homeowners who have each volunteered to serve for a term of 3 years. Board elections are held each April at the annual homeowner meeting for any seats that are up for reelection in that particular year. The board meets 10 times per year, typically on the 3rd Saturday of the month*. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, there are no meetings in August or December. Meeting agendas are posted at least 3 days before each meeting*, and all owners are welcome to attend. All monthly board meetings are held at the Bridge House and begin at 9:30 am with an “open forum” during which time owners are invited to come and speak to the board on any subject. At 10:00 am, or once all attending owners have been heard (whichever comes FIRST), the regular meeting will begin. Once the regular meeting has been called to order, owners are welcome to remain and observe.

[NOTE: Due to current restrictions in place to help combat Covid-19, monthly board meetings are being held primarily via Zoom online video conferencing for the foreseeable future. Any owner who wishes to “attend” should email the Manager no later than 2pm the day before a scheduled meeting to request a meeting link. Typically, the Manager and one board member will be at the Bridge House during the meetings, so that owners who are not comfortable with the online platform may attend, however, attendance in this manner is extremely limited. Owners attending in person must wear a mask and be prepared to maintain physical distancing.]
