2021 Board of Directors Election and Annual Meeting

We are pleased to announce that all eligible Members as of February 28, 2021 will be invited to have a voice in the future of Vantage West during our upcoming election. Three Board seats are up for regular election. The Nominating Committee has announced their four nominees, listed in alphabetical order by last name:

Bob Logan
Manny Lucero (Incumbent)
Kara Riley
Matthew Woods (Incumbent)

There were no nominations by petition. As there are four nominees for three vacant seats, Members will be asked to vote for no more than three candidates. To ensure all eligible and interested Members are given the opportunity to cast a ballot, regardless of where they live or work, this year’s election will primarily be held online. We have again selected Election Services Corporation to administer this process.
