MEET THE BOARD AND OFFICERS

The members of the Emerald Pointe RV Resort Board of Directors are elected to staggered 3 year terms by the owners at the Annual Meeting of the EPPOA in March of each year.  Each Board Member must be a property owner at Emerald Pointe.  
 
Immediately following the Annual Meeting, the Board meets to elect a President and Vice-President and also appoints two additional Officers - the Secretary/Office Manager and the Treasurer.  These four individuals serve in their Officer capacities for a period of one year.
 
In addition to the Board members' shared responsibility for the overall management of the affairs of the Resort, each Director has oversight responsibility for a number of committees or groups of volunteers within their assigned areas that will provide input, make recommendations and otherwise assist the Board.
Ron Erwin President
We currently live in Crossville, TN.  Our team loyalty, however, is still with Alabama, having lived there for 38 years.  Carol and I have been married for almost 55 years and have 2 sons, 2 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
 
I was in the food business all my life, having worked for several large companies as a Regional Sales Manager.  In 2004, I started my own food brokerage company and then retired in 2009.
 
We bought in Emerald Pointe in 2005 and started spending our winters here in 2010.  I've been on the Lot Inspection and Compliance Committees for several years, as well as working with the Tuesday Work Crew.
 
This is one of the most beautiful resorts in Florida, and it is because of all the volunteers and the rules we have in place.  What a wonderful place to live! I'm honored to serve as a Director of this great resort.
 
 
Responsibilities: Secretary/Office Management, Treasurer, Finance, Contracts, Website, Facebook, Park Promotions & External Publicity, EPROC & Government liaison, Hearings, Candidate Search, and Summer Responsibility
 
Tyna Conley, Vice President
 
My husband Dana and I bought a property in Emerald Pointe in the summer of 2014.  We spent our first winter here in 2015.  We originally went back and forth from our home base in Russell, Kentucky for those first few years. In the summer of 2018, we sold our KY home and EP became our full time home.
 
I have spent most of my life working with the public.  I worked in the food industry for 12 years and spent the last 3 years as a Banquet Manager for a Ramada Inn.  I spent 10 years in sales and managed staff in 3 retail stores.  For the last 25 years of my working career, I was a Real Estate Agent.  I took several classes at a KY Community College and became a Real Estate Broker.  I had my own office for 10 years in KY and Ohio.  I was a Director and President of our Ashland area Board of Realtors for 2 years.
 
I ran for the Board of EP hoping that maybe my years of working with the public and owning my own business (which gave me lots of experience at setting goals and managing budgets) would enable me to make a valuable contribution to the Resort. My goal is to work hard to keep Emerald Pointe one of the premier RV Resorts in Florida.  
 
Hope to see you at the Clubhouse!

Kevin Barlow - Director
I'm from Woodstock, Ontario, Canada and have been married to my amazing wife, Kim, for over 43 years. We visited Emerald Pointe back in December of 2018 while looking for an RV park to call our second home.  We were able to secure a rental for the 2019/2020 season. We purchased our own lot that very season on Alabaster amongst great new friends and neighbours. I have spent the last several years as a Secondary school teacher, plus manager, coached and participated in many sports and activities.

I am a Licensed Class A automotive Technician as well as Truck, Coach by trade.

Qualified Secondary School Teacher. Grades 9 -12

A recipient of several General Motors Grand Master Technician awards.

When we first arrived here, we were over whelmed by, not only the beauty and amenities of the park but, the open arm welcome we received from everyone we met. I would love to allow others to experience what we did by helping to maintain the grounds, friendship, and activities we have all now learned to love.

I look forward to working closely with the board of directors and owners of this amazing park we now call our second home.

Murray Dawson - Director
 
My wife Vicki and I have been coming to Emerald Pointe for the last 20 years as visitors, and were always amazed at how well this park has been maintained.  We purchased a property on Beryl Lane in 2015 and have enjoyed coming to EP every winter since.  
 
I have been on the board for a 3 year term so far. The first year I was the director in charge of rule compliance and also in charge of the pool. The second and third year I moved to lot improvement and the pool.  Under my direction the spa was resurfaced and we moved the back fence which enlarged the pool deck surface. Later we removed the existing concrete pad around the pool and covered the entire deck in pavers for a more unified look. The pool equipment has been renewed and the entire pool was resurfaced.  It was worth the wait, it looks beautiful. During my past term(s) some of the other projects I was involved in were:  installing a path to the dog park, the parking lot for the golf carts and working on lights for night swimming.
