The Advisory Council is comprised of five Owners that represent the Grand Residences Community. They meet at least once a year with representatives from DRM and the Resort Operating Company to review and make recommendations on Resort Operations at Grand Residences for the following year, policies, procedures and issues of interest to Owners.
The Advisory Council’s annual meeting will be held at Grand Residences. Any Owner that would like to be a part of the Grand Residences Advisory Council is cordially invited to send in their application before July 31, 2018.
Current members of the Grand Residences Advisory Council will review all the applications and will vote for a new member in a private election during the 2018 Advisory Council Meeting in October.
The next Advisory Council Meeting will be held in Grand Residences on October 18, 2018.
Advisory Council responsibilities
The duties of the Advisory Council consist of the review of financial statements for the current year’s operations at Grand Residences, all reports presented by Management relating to the maintenance and operation of the resort, the projected budgets for the operation of the following year and proposed Club Service Fees to be paid per interval based upon the reviewed budget for the resort. They also study maintenance and fixed assets programs, proposals for new services and amenities, cost-efficiency operating projects and guest satisfaction survey results among others.
In their capacity as representatives, Advisory Council members raise concerns voiced by Owners in relation to the operation of the resort and follow up on their queries with DRM and the Resort Management Company at the meeting and during the year.
