2/24 UPDATE: Water Leak in CCE

Good morning CCE residents, I am sending this post to inform you that I will be starting a water leak down test at 1:00pm to 3:00pm today. This will be a 2 hour test. All of Aspen loop will continue to have water during this test. The area marked in yellow on the posted map may experience a drop in pressure and/or be out of water for the 2 hours. Be advised that this is a short test and the water will be back on immediately after the test.

We are also asking ALL residents in Cloud County Estates, including the full-time residents to check around and under their homes for any signs of water leaks. We suspect that there are 1 or more homes that may be leaking. If you find or suspect any problems, please contact me at (575)921-7567. I thank you very much for your help, support and patience. 

 

2022 POA Dues Increase – Approved

The following table reflects the new dues starting March 2022. These increases were presented at the 2021 Annual Member Meeting on July 3, 2021. These increases are necessary due to the increased costs associated with maintaining the properties of Cloud Country Estates, and the shortfalls projected.

The Cloud Country Club Dues remain the same for 2022 but are expected to increase in 2023 by the Consumer Price Index of 2022.

Club Decision on Religious Installations

Due to the sensitive and legal nature of the matter, the Club board held a Special Meeting (Club Bylaws, ARTICLE V, Section 4), executive session on Saturday, January 29, 2022 via Zoom to discuss legal counsel advisement and explore legal, spiritual and financial impacts on religious sign installations on Club property. Upon concluding those discussions, as well as reviewing points made in the included white paper report, the board unanimously voted to rescind the installation of the cross on club grounds, and will not consider any religious installations in the future.

2022 CCE Website Revision

We’re starting the new year with a newly revised and organized website, starting with the homepage. It has been sectioned to provide key access points for visitors and owners alike. Feel free to peruse the site — we are in the process of adding new content and editing previous, so please bear with us.

How to use Zoom

For those of you who are new to Zoom, it is an online video chat/meeting program that uses your computer and device’s camera, speaker and screen to talk to people, similar to a Facetime call. The Cloud Country Estates and Cloud Country Club board of directors have been using this platform for meetings since the pandemic occurred. While there has been reported issues regarding security when using Zoom, the company has taken great measures to eliminate those. You can read more about that here. Most of the issues were related to default meeting settings that allowed uninvited participants to enter into meetings and cause problems. Because the platform has been significantly elevated as the tool to use during the pandemic, they have stepped up to assure old issues have been addressed.

Fundamental: How to use it.

The board will be conducting meetings where owners and members can connect and participate. Ideally, installing the Zoom software on your PC or Mac computer, a tablet/iPad, or your mobile phone is best practice. The software is available for all platforms and devices. You then have the option to create an account for free. This is also recommended but not required. Finally, you will need the meeting information to connect. This information is on this website and available for viewing if you have an account activated with this website. The meetings are closed to the public but open to Estates property owners and Club members.

Need more help?

There are a variety of resources to visit and watch to help you with zoom. Below are some links to YouTube Videos, and the Zoom website has valuable information. It may seem intimidating, but Zoom’s biggest plus is how easy it is to use it. If you still need help, we can try to schedule to go over the setup over the phone. This is a limited approach and is strictly from volunteers, so we encourage you to try the other methods first.

COVID-19 Guidelines in CCE

(As of June 16, 2020 — please check New Mexico Health Newsroom webpage for changes)

The following are recommended guidelines set forth by the New Mexico Governor’s, and the New Mexico Health Department:

  • Face-coverings must be worn in public settings.
  • Mass gatherings and congregations are still unsafe and prohibited.
  • New Mexicans are still urged to stay home, especially if sick or in a high-risk group, and to maintain a 6-foot physical distance from others if you must go out.

Other guidance can be found here. The CCE and Club Board of Directors follows these guidelines for the guidance of the community.

Board of directors Nominating Process

Cloud Country Estates/ Cloud Country Club is governed by a board consisting of at least eight members. The board does important and exciting work- including strategic planning, making decisions to improve the community, financial oversight, input and direction of our fulltime property manager- all of which are geared to making CCE/CCC the best and most sought after residential area in the area.

Our board members have varied backgrounds and talents, but one thing they all share is a passion for Cloud Country. The result is a great collaboration by dedicated people making a meaningful impact on our community today and for the future.

Directors are elected to fill a two year term. There are five positions to fill this year. As we prepare for the 2020 cycle we are focused on attracting a broad range of men and women who are excited about helping our community. We are looking for owners who spend at least part of their time in the Estates as well as full time residents. The more our board reflects the makeup of our property owners the more effective it will be at charting the best course for Cloud Country.

Think about it. You could be one of our next board members!

Nominating Committee

In January of each year, the Nominating Committee is created. The committee consists of one board member and two or more members of the community.

Nominating Procedures

Soon after forming, the Nominating Committee begins seeking individuals with a demonstrated background of leadership and service to join the CCE/CCC Board of Directors. We ask for owners who are interested in serving to submit their applications to the Nominating Committee. Applications should include name, address, years that property has been owned in the estates and a short bio.

CCE Amended B/l 08/042016-1 states:

Nomination for election to the Board of Directors shall be made by one of the following:

2.1 The Nominating Committee

2.2 Notification to the nominating committee by April 15, by any member in good standing who wishes to serve on the Board.

2.3 Nomination from the floor by a member in good standing at the general meeting. The nominee shall also be a member in good standing to be accepted as a candidate.

Election

Directors are elected at the annual meeting in July and take office at the following board meeting. In the event that there are more candidates nominated than positions available, there shall be a vote by the membership. The candidate receiving the most votes will fill the position.
