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.

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.

Tami Wood - Director
Hello EP!  I am Tami Wood, one of your new Directors.  For those of you that do not know much about me,  I would like to give you a little background on myself. I  have been married to my husband, Michael, for 37 years. Together we raised 2 amazing children and we have 3 wonderful grandchildren. I enjoy a number of  hobbies including quilting, sewing and crafting.  
 
I can be described as someone who enjoys life, is hard working and caring. I come from an family of 8 children. I started my work history serving 7 years in the military.  I completed my degree in nursing in Brockville Ontario Canada.  As an RN, I held many  positions in the hospital, including critical care nursing.  Also, I worked a number of years as a nurse within the Canada corrections system in a maximum security setting. Michael and I routinely moved and were stationed in many places, the most memorable being West Germany for three years.
 
I am excited to work for and with our EP Community as one of your directors.  I welcome all new ideas and opinions from all of you.  I ask that if you have ideas, suggestions or opinions related to social, in which I am in charge of, please email me.  However, please remember social does not have a budget, meaning we only use the money from charging for events to pay for all social activities.  Therefore, we have to have enough participants for the activities and/or events we have to cover the costs. 
 
Thank you for your confidence in me as one of your directors, and be sure I will do all I can to help make EP even a better RV Resort!
