Your free LED light bulbs are here! The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) completed a delivery of two free LED bulbs for Barker Block owners as part of the City’s “Save Energy LA” campaign. LADWP has delivered two (2) light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs to all residential customers to help Save Energy in LA. When you switch from incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to LEDs, you can save $238 in electric costs over the lifetime of each bulb. LEDs last longer, save money, save electricity and help to make Los Angeles more sustainable. Please feel free to pick up your two LED bulbs and reusable bag from the Management Office during normal business hours.

We are pleased to announce that we reached quorum at the Annual Meeting! THANK YOU to those that took the time to submit your ballot or proxy. Congratulations to raffle winner in unit 521! Their ballot was randomly selected at the meeting and the winner has claimed their $250 gift card. Congratulations to the re-elected Board Members, Erika Schllick Sinclair and John “Reg” Prentice! There was a 3-way tie for the third open seat. All three members were write-in candidates and all three were contacted the following day to ask if they accept the position. All three candidates have respectfully declined to serve on the Board at this time.
Here is a list of your current Board of Directors:
President– Russell Roney
Vice President– Lauren Phillips
Secretary– Reg Prentice
Treasurer– Erika Schllick Sinclair
Director– *Seat is available*
Your Board and Management are now seeking volunteers from the community to fill the vacant seat on the Board. Please be advised, you must be a homeowner to serve on the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors meets monthly in the evening (when possible) every fourth Thursday to conduct the business of the Association. The meetings can last 2-3 hours. There are also weekly conference calls that are generally one hour long to discuss the planning and details of the reconstruction project. There may be other business to be handled between the scheduled monthly meetings and conference calls that would require a Special Meeting of the Board, which will mean additional time commitments. Participation in additional conference calls is also a possibility. Please be advised, the term for this vacant seat ends February 2020. Experience in the following areas would be a plus: banking, construction, design and accounting.
If you are interested in being appointed to the Board, please contact Management to receive a Candidate Questionnaire form. All Candidate Questionnaires need to be submitted prior to 5:00 P.M., Tuesday, March 13, 2018, in order to be considered by the Board. The Board hopes to fill the final vacancy at its meeting on Thursday, March 22nd.

We would like to remind all Owners that the Annual Meeting of the Members is scheduled to be held Thursday, February 22nd at 7:00 p.m. in the Barker Block Breezeway. Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to sign-in. In order to hold the Annual Meeting and reach quorum, we are required to have 156 out of 310 ballots or proxies returned. As of today, only 49 ballots and proxies have been received. We need 107 MORE ballots or proxies. We are asking each owner that has not voted or submitted a proxy to please take the time to read through the ballot mailer, complete the ballot and return it inside the envelopes provided as soon as possible. Feel free to drop your ballot or proxy off at the Management Office.
If you misplaced your ballot and have not yet voted, please let Management know so a new ballot can be mailed to you. Please feel free to call me or Administrative Assistant Nicome at 213-473-0079 with any questions you may have regarding the voting process. Your vote counts!
****Please keep in mind, the HOA saves money by reaching quorum the first time around as we would not need to pay for legal counsel and the ballot inspector to return a second time.
We thank all of you that have taken the time to submit your ballot or proxy!
