2019 Board of Director Candidates

Posted on November 2, 2018 at 8:50 PM

The Following Are Candidates for the 2019 Captain’s Walk Board of Directors:

Hello My Name, is Kim Guillory. I am currently a stay at home mom, married to my husband for 34 years and homeschooling our eight-year-old granddaughter, Vada.

I have lived in the state of South Carolina for the past seventeen years.

After graduating, from Junior College in New Orleans, I pursued a career with a local Apartment Agency where I managed over four hundred apartment units. During my tenure, I received a Certification in Apartment Management with the National Apartment Association.

In 2002 we moved our family to the State of South Carolina.

I obtained a position with Jacobs Engineering working in the Facilities Department managing the day to day operation of the building, and maintenance crews.

In 2008, I was hired in the procurement department at Jacobs and became a buyer for major capital projects.

In September 2014 I became a full-time mom and business owner.

My husband and I have owned and operated an Automotive Repair shop in Fountain Inn, SC for the past fifteen years, its success has allowed us to purchase two villas’ in the Captains Walk Community.

I love homeschooling my daughter, helping my husband run our business, gardening, decorating, boating, camping, hiking and renting our condos at Captains Walk.

I would be honored to serve on the board and share my thoughts and ideas during this exciting time at Keowee Key.


Beth Logue: I bought at Captain’s Walk in June of 2016 and currently reside at 560-7. I am a partner at Hearthstone Development, an architecture and design firm in Sapphire, NC. In addition to design services, Hearthstone offers property management and at present manages four condominium and townhouse associations with a total of 86 units. With extensive experience in negotiating and overseeing the work for services such as landscape, tree work, and general repairs I believe I could assist the Captain’s Walk HOA in its goal to remain a “self-managed” community. I also administer and maintain the financial records for the communities we manage including developing annual budgets, multi-year financial projections and capital improvement plans. I believe in total financial transparency and strive to communicate effectively and honestly with Owners. On a personal note, I am 58 years old and enjoy golf and trips in the RV with my significant other. I hold degrees in industrial marketing and manufacturing engineering from Western Michigan University. I am skilled in computers including Microsoft Excel, Word and Intuit QuickBooks.

Jamie Toti:

Currently, I am a part-time resident at Captain’s Cove but am very interested in provided my services as a volunteer on the Board. I served as Vice President, for two years, and President for one year at our current HOA which is very small in comparison and with no amenities offered in our community. We maintained the front gardening, and we have an annual neighborhood Halloween Party. We have a surplus in money due to the sale of the land for road widening that was purchased by the state, and have maintained our budget year to year. Our covenants only allowed service for three years consistently and I had to step down last year.

I have worked for Duke Energy as a Project Controls specialist for the last 9 years, and continue in that capacity. Captain’s Walk and the whole community is relatively new for me as I wish it to be the place to retire. Although I am learning the area and about the condo association itself, I have a passion for keeping the area up and following the work that David has set in motion for long time. His friendliness and what he did in the area helped make my decision to move there easier. It would be great to continue that and make others feel the same welcoming experience. My work experience and life in general is diverse, being an athlete in my young life, having experienced different facets that I can share in bringing to the table of my experiences would be great. Customer and vendor experience would assist in communicating our goals and getting things done. It would be great to continue to make the condos a great part of the community to live and maintain.

Hiking and kayaking are my favorites things to do and loving the outdoors gives me the passion and desire to maintain our areas and keep them beautiful. I have two great dogs, one I have only taken up there who loves the lake. The fact that you all are dog friendly, hiking/walking friendly, I would love to do my part as an appreciation to the community and what the community is offering. Being part-time resident will still give me time to participate and I hope you give me an opportunity to work with others. Thank you.

The Captain's Walk Board of Directors presents its annual “Call for Candidates” for the upcoming 2019 General Election. Anyone interested in becoming an officer on the 2019 Board of Directors, please submit a brief bio or resume no later than November 3, 2018. All information will be emailed out along with a ballot for homeowners to cast their votes by November 12, 2018. The Winners will be announced by the end of November. The new Board will be installed at the Annual Meeting on December 8, 2018.

We are a self-managed community and each Board position handles specific responsibilities pertaining to the management of the community. Those who choose to run must understand it will take commitment. It is taken into consideration that some homeowners live out of town. Positions are voluntary but compensation may be awarded at the end of the term by a vote at the annual general meeting and would be in the form of a full or partial credit for the upcoming year’s annual regime fees with an amount determined by the Board. In other words, compensation is only awarded on performance.

Several years ago the homeowners voted for the community to be managed by the Board of Directors in order to eliminate the additional cost of a professional management company. To date, this savings has been ongoing because Captain’s Walk homeowners have been willing to commit to help in managing the community. These savings have been reflected in the fact that regimes fees at Captain’s Walk are significantly lower than anywhere else in Keowee Key. Without the involvement of homeowners, Captain’s Walk may have to consider hiring a management company at a considerable cost to everyone.

According to the Master Deed for our community, the Board of Directors should have no less than three and no more than five members. There will be several openings that need to be filled for 2019 so please consider serving your community.

All resumes will be posted on an “Election” page on the CW website and will also emailed to all homeowners.

Please email all resumes in Microsoft Word or PDF format to: cwvhoa@gmail.com. All bio’s must be received by November 3, 2018 to be placed on the ballot.

2019 ANNUAL OPERATING BUDGET: The final budget cannot be completed until the close of the current year after all expenditures and income has been compiled. Once the Board has a final 2019 budget, you may visit the “Your Dollars at Work” page on the community website (www.captainswalkvillas.com), for a line by line explanation. Invoices for the 2019 Annual Regime Fees will be mailed out in December.

May 16, 2018 Board Meeting Notes -

Call to Order at 10AM

Financial Report – Captain’s Walk Finances are in excellent shape. Our operating account and reserves are adequately funded

Building Repairs and Painting – Although painting the six remaining buildings that were not painted last year was not originally in this year’s budget, we have received an excellent price to paint the remaining buildings. Therefore, the Board has approved the painting. Buildings 100, 125, 200, and 300 have been finished.

Carpentry has recently been completed where repairs were needed. Replacement light post toppers will be completed soon for those that are in bad shape.

A vapor barrier has been installed under building 560.

Buildings 125, 200 and 560 have been treated for carpenter bees.

All buildings have been pressure washed.

Landscaping – Mulch will be added to the property where needed when the painting is complete.

South Flagship Walking Trail – The new South Flagship Walking Trail crosses Captain’s Walk property in front of buildings 100 and 125. KKPOA has had a survey completed to acknowledge that fact. Captain’s Walk has been added to KKPOA’s insurance in case there is an issue or accident on the trail that is on CW property. KKPOA has promised to install landscape plants to help shield the utility boxes in front of building 100 that have been exposed by the removal of trees.

Annual Meeting Date – The date for our annual meeting is December 8, 2018.

The Meeting was adjourned at 11:06 AM

Board Meeting notes, Dec 2, 2017 10 am Captains Walk Villas HOA.

Place: Event Center

Attendance, Ron Lavender, David Walker, Sandi Doherty and 9 proxy votes.

Ron called meeting to order. Reading of last minutes was waived and approved.

Ron reviewed insurance for next year. We are expecting a $500 increase next year with Travelers.

David reviewed this year’s financials. Several projects were completed including paving, landscaping, rebuild chimneys and painting of 4 building. Actual expenses were over budget by $4,000 due to increase in Building Maintenance. All accounts are reconciled and approved. We have 2 accounts with liens for collection with 2 others pending liens. One account is to be collected next week. Financials were seconded and approved.

Budget for 2018 was presented for approval. Due to increased need for building maintenance and replacement/repair of gutter system, an increase of 10% of the regime fee and increase of transfer fees to $1000.00 was approved. Painting costs for the remaining buildings are extremely high due to contractors leaving area for Texas or Florida, therefore building painting will be delayed to 2019. With the dues increase, we should have enough in reserve to complete all building painting in 2019 without an additional assessment. Budget for 2018 was seconded and approved.

New business was presented concerning the outdoor lighting. Sandi is to look at some new fixtures and present to board.

The new board for 2018 was unanimously approved by the members via vote. Your new board members are, Ron Lavender, David Walker, Darryl Benamati, and Carlene Walker.

Compensation of the 2017 Board members, Ron and David was approved by waiving of 2018 regime fee.

Next meeting will be March 2018, TBD.

Meeting adjourned
