Neighborhood Voting Member Election

DC Ranch is served by a total of 44 NVMs, each representing the neighborhood in which they live. The goal is to have all neighborhoods represented by an NVM as the designated voice on any Ranch Association matters requiring a vote, such as the election of the Ranch Association Board of Directors.

    Ranch Association Policy 106 outlines the NVM role and responsibilities and is accessible online at DCRanch.com. New terms run January 1 through December 31, 2022. Each neighborhood may elect a NVM and Alternate NVM, however only the NVM shall have voting power unless unable to serve. Elected NVMs and Alternate NVMs will be asked to complete a brief training around mid-January to prepare for election of the Ranch Association Board Members which commences February 1 when applications are made available. The Annual Election and Meeting will be held in early April 2022.

    Per Section 106.6.b, the primary duties of an NVM are to: 1) elect-Ranch Association Board of Directors, 2) vote in all Association matters requiring a membership vote, 3) serve as chair of its Neighborhood Committee, should one be created under Article 5 of the Bylaws, 4) act as a liaison between the Board and its constituents on matters of importance to the neighborhood, and 5) provide a quorum of members for the annual meeting.

    106.6.c: NVMs cast all allocated votes for Board candidates in a fair and ethical manner on behalf of their neighbors and should seek input from their neighborhood members before casting the neighborhood’s votes. Each lot represents one vote; each vote is counted in each voting block as determined by the Board.
