KIAWAH ISLAND DIGEST | 7 Important Information for the 2019 Election ANNUAL MEETING Your 2019 election ballot (emailed or mailed to primary members on Jan. 7) asks you to assign your proxy to the board secretary in order for your vote to be counted towards quorum. Since many of our members live part-time on Kiawah and are unable to attend the annual meeting in person, assigning the proxy allows for quorum to be met without member attendance. KICA must have 51% of the membership assign proxy in order to meet quorum and certify the vote for directors. This proxy will only be used to establish quorum. 2019 Annual Meeting Timeline Jan. 7 – Voting Opens Feb. 21 – Meet the Candidates Night - The Sandcastle March 8 – Voting Closes at 5 p.m. March 15 – Annual Meeting - The Sandcastle | 10 a.m. Questions about your vote? Visit kica.us/vote for more information or send your questions to JustAsk@kica.us. Pay Member Assessments Online With Ease KICA annual assessment statements were sent out to members in late December. For the first time, assessments were emailed to most members. Members who contacted the Member Services department to request paper only will receive a mailed statement. There are three easy ways to pay your annual assessment this year: by eCheck, credit card or check. To pay by eCheck or credit card online, visit kica.us/ pay. This will direct you to KICA’s third-party processing system by Mutual of Omaha Bank. Create a login to save your contact and payment info or select ‘Pay Now’ for a one time payment. ASSOCIATION FINANCES You will need the Management ID (4520), Association ID (KICA) and Customer/Property ID (found on your statement). • eCheck: Select ‘Pay by eCheck.’ To pay using this option, you will input the routing and account numbers from the face of a check. There are no processing fees for eChecks. • Credit Card: Select “Pay by Card.’ There is a $14.95 processing fee for card payments. To pay by check, mail a check to the ‘Mail to’ address listed on your statement. Assessments are due Jan. 31. If you have not received your annual assessment statement by Jan. 4, contact assessments@kica.us.
