Community Transition to External Management

Come out and meet the new Management Team

Ice cream will be served!

Dear Members,
We are excited to announce that we are actively engaged in a management transition, effective today! The Board of Directors decided that it would be in the best interest of the Association and its Members to install an interim management team, with proven success and professional credentials, to lead the charge in a long-overdue overhaul of our operations. We strongly believe that you’ll greatly appreciate the results to come.
The Board has been diligently strategizing over the past several months about how to produce stability in our staffing, administrative and financial functions; continuity in leadership; strength in our community’s morale; and, impart professionalism and solemnity in our Association’s Directors. We believe in full confidence that Clearwood requires professional management for its long-term success. Our multi-million-dollar corporation requires dedicated skilled attention; we are a small city and need to start operating like one.
A few months ago, after receiving your feedback from the Management Research Committee, we decided to embark on the journey of implementing Professional Property Management (PPM) for Clearwood. A Request For Proposal (RFP) was produced and transmitted for PPM companies; we requested that an outside consultant review this RFP and our organization in this process. We reflected on the feedback we were given and determined that we could not proceed in good faith with implementing a PPM company in our organization at this time. Your Board believes that our systems and culture first need significant change; we need to produce systematic integrity, transparency, clarity, stability, and protection for the Association and its Members prior to engaging in any potentially long-term professional relationship with any management firm.
Coming aboard is Mitch Waterman as General Manager, Jennifer Spidle as Accounting Manager, and Patricia Dye as Human Resources Manager. This interim management team will be here for the next 12 months managing all operations. They will be immediately focusing on several critical components which have long required serious attention. While they address these many things as contracted, they will also lead the strategy and implementation of an effective long-term management solution in conjunction with our Board of Directors and committees.
We will be hosting a meet-and-greet with the management team and Board of Directors this next Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at 6:30pm at Reichel Beach; we highly encourage your attendance. If you have any questions or comments, please email
Very Respectfully,
Aaron Lang
President of the Board of Directors
Clearwood Community Association
