YOU MUST HAVE ONE VALID EMAIL ADDRESS REGISTERED WITH THE POA IN ORDER TO VOTE IN THIS ELECTION. This is to confirm your status as a property owner, to ensure your eligibility to vote in this DICA board election, and will also be where your voter’s code and the ballot will be emailed when it is time to vote. To confirm your email address on file or to register your email address with the POA, please email Danielle Stix at danielle.stix@dicommunity.org by 4:30 PM on October 3rd, 2022 with your one preferred email address that you check most frequently as well as your property address.

Pursuant to Section 3.19 of the Bylaws, for a 2 year period following the election of the 6 directors, DIC (as Class “B” Member of the Association) has approval and disapproval rights over the actions of the Board with respect to policy or program of the Association, the Board and any committee which, that in the sole judgment of DIC, would tend to impair rights of DIC or Builders under the Declaration or By-Laws, or would interfere with the development of Daniel Island, or diminish the level of services being provided by the Association.

The roles and responsibilities of DICA Board members may be found in the DICA Bylaws, Section C on the POA website. The DICA Board will continue to meet at least on a quarterly basis beginning in January 2023.
