Governance
 
Park Vista is governed by Directors who are individually elected by ballots at the Annual General Meeting.  The elected Directors form the Board of Directors, which is responsible for making all major decisions regarding the condo’s finances and maintenance of buildings and grounds, and for upholding the uniform enforcement of the Condo Act, declaration, by-laws, and rules.  The Board represents neither itself nor the Property Management but the owners and should be accountable to them.  Owners should be able to make reasonable complaints to the Board without being threatened with legal actions.
 
Election of Directors

Directors are alternately elected (2 by 2 by 1) annually for three year terms and are eligible to be re-elected for subsequent terms.  The Board of Directors should ideally consists of five directors (though may still legally operate with just three):  President, Vice-president, Secretary, Treasurer, and General Manager.
