Thank you to all the members who made effort to help the Association reach the required quorum of 156 ballots to hold the Annual Election Meeting. Unfortunately, quorum was not met by meeting time last night. As a result, the meeting was adjourned to be held under the reduced quorum on Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. (via ZOOM)
The polling station will open at 6:45 p.m. to provide members who have not voted with the opportunity to submit their ballot prior to meeting time. Secret ballots received by the Inspector(s), or which were cast at the Annual Meeting will be valid for adjourned meetings.
Remember, there are (2) open seats available for a two-year term. Members have been provided with the candidate statements for those noted on the ballot and/or who would like to be considered for your nomination and vote.
Nominations from the floor will be called upon confirmation that quorum has been met and the meeting is called to order. Any eligible member may nominate himself/herself, or may nominate another eligible individual if the individual being nominated is present to accept the nomination. Write-In candidates must also be nominated from the floor.

As an Owner and member of Barker Block, you have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors where you can bring fresh ideas and strategies to the table! Do you have what it takes?
So what makes a great HOA board member…
Enjoy volunteering: Every board member in a homeowners association is a volunteer. Therefore, they must have the time, patience and enthusiasm to dedicate themselves to community issues, even though they receive no monetary compensation.
Being civic-minded: The best board members want to get to know their neighbors, enjoy building community, and take pride in the place they live. They put their community’s best interests first and seek to build long-term value for their community, both socially and financially.
Positive and Optimistic: Managing a community comes with many challenges. Great HOA board members bring positive expectations to their role and refuse to get discouraged, even when faced with tough decisions.
Exercise fairness: Board members are there to serve their communities, not their own personal interests. Great board members understand this and demonstrate respect to all community members, regardless of how they feel about an issue personally. Their friends receive no special benefits; they know that HOA rules must be evenly applied to all community members.
Authority comes as a board, not a board member: Great HOA board members know that they possess no individual authority; rather, in their role as a unified board, they make group decisions that positively impact their communities. Therefore, they quickly support group decisions, even if they are counter to their own personal opinion.

The Los Angeles Police Department – Central Division was pleasantly surprised with the generosity by the residents of Barker Block who donated toys to benefit the underprivileged children of Downtown Los Angeles. Because of your donations, LAPD will provide a toy that will bring a smile to a deserving child. For many, it will be their only gift received this holiday season. Your participation to help make this possible is greatly appreciated!
