INDIAN RIVER PLANTATION PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC

Stuart, Florida 34994
To: All IRP Owners
As the new president of the Property Owners Association !(POA) at IRP, I would like to share
with you some of our objectives for the coming year.
But first, I ask you to become aware of several board members and their contributions to this
community. First and foremost is Ms. Mimi Kiriluk. Mimi has been president of the POA for a
number of years, and now has chosen to step down from that position while remaining on the
Board. Mimi has devoted thousands of hours of her time and effort to represent the 1183
property owners on the Plantation. Her extraordinary leadership has done much to make our lives
here safe and pleasant. Her devotion to this community is matched by no one. So, please join me
in offering Mimi our sincere thanks and appreciation.
Thanks also go to Peter Frank and Judge McGinley whose terms on the Board of Directors have
expired. Peter has served as board Secretary and along with Judge McGinley has made many
contributions to this community.
Now, to look ahead, let me share some thoughts on the directions of the new POA Board. First,
we will continue to be responsible for our four major missions - Cable TV, Security, Irrigation,
and Road and Beach Access and Maintenance.
In addition to those core responsibilities, the Board will embark on an active plan to engage all
IRP owners and to provide new and exciting social and community activities.
Some actions have already been taken. The POA Board authorized Bob Hood, a board member,
to meet with all Association Presidents to solicit their ideas on how to improve the IRP
experience. As a result of that meeting and its input, the Board appointed Bob the new
Residential Affairs Advisor for the POA. In this role, he will spearhead many of the new
activities referenced above through several interest groups: Social Activies, Communications,
Golf, Tennis, and Beautification. Additional information regarding this subject is on the reverse
side of this hard copy letter, or a second email page.
As we look ahead to the new season later this year, I hope that all owners will take an active part
in realizing that IRP is not just a group of Associations, but is also a community of owners and
renters who share opportunities for enjoyment and mutual assistance. It includes not only Ocean
Club members, but all owners at IRP.

two primary purposes;

In order to accomplish these objectives we will work closely with the Marriott Resort and
Colombia-Sussex, the Resort owner, and other local venues, to develop events and
programs that will provide social, athletic, cultural, and entertainment activities.
To accomplish these objectives we have established five interest groups:
• Social Activites - for social and entertainment events on the Plantation and
elsewhere, and promoting food and beverage activities with Marriott and
Colombia-Sussex, the resort owner
• Communications - to provide timely information between the POA, the
Associations, and all owners regarding needs, activities, and plans
• Golf - strengthening and expanding our golf program
• Tennis - strengthening and expanding our tennis program
• Common areas - Beautification of our common properties
A key area requiring our attention is Communication~. We intend to make use of various
media in order to reach as many owners as possible in a timely, economic, and effective
manner. Communication channels that will be explored are;
• Word of mouth
• Direct Mail Letter - sent with quarterly billing statements
• Association Presidents - meetings and mailings
• Bulletin Boards
• Web Site enhancements
JPOA ADVISORY (;ROUPS

programs, as well as develop better communication with owners that will
provide a better sharing of proposals that will enhance our enjoyment of
living at IRP.

Groups as they have worked on these issues in other capacities. An
overview is attached to this memorandum. If you have any suggestions,
