Everyone is invited to attend an Open Forum on Thursday, July 22nd at 7:30 p.m. in the Assembly Building. In addition to several important topics on the agenda this is your opportunity to bring forth ideas and concerns to the Board of Trustees. We hope you will attend. We need an active and informed community.
  1. ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION: At the 2021 Annual Meeting the membership will vote to approve the updated Articles of Incorporation which had not been updated since originally filed in 1932. This is your chance to ask any final questions regarding the Articles. Click this link to review the presentation
  1. BYLAWS: The Board is sponsoring two amendments to the CSA Bylaws. Click this link to review a document with the specific changes.
    • Proposed amendment #1. In a vote taken at the September 26, 2020 Special Meeting the membership voted overwhelmingly to change Privilege ticket to Assembly ticket. The next step is to vote on changing Privilege Ticket to Assembly Ticket everywhere it is used in the Bylaws. The Bylaws Committee reviewed the current Bylaws and found three places where privilege ticket occurs. These occurrences are all in section I, Membership.
    • The proposed amendment #2 arises from our update to the CSA Articles of Incorporation. The Board recommends moving the language that defines the term of office for the Trustees from the Articles to the Bylaws. There is no change to the total number of trustees, the number elected each year or the term of the trustees.
  2. Discussion: We need your help to ensure that CSA common properties and beaches remain safe and family-friendly locations for all to enjoy. We have had several reports during the summer of alcoholic beverages being consumed, instances of fireworks and noise disturbances due to late-night activities which disturbed cottage owners nearby.
