IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ARTISAN PARK HOMEOWNERS
Artisan Parks is one of several "service areas" in Celebration. The Artisan Park Service Area, including the clubhouse, is managed on a daily basis by CCMC, the company hired to manage all of Celebration.
Suzan Kearns is our Community Manager; Bill McFadden is the General Manager; Doug Dingee is the Assistant Manager - all are CCMC employees, as are the cooks and wait staff, just like the employees in Town Hall.
The Artisan Park Committee (APC) is a subcommittee of the Celebration Resident Owners Association (CROA) which is the overall homeowners' association for Celebration. Five (5) Artisan Park homeowners are elected to the APC to represent homeowners' interests in the Service Area including the clubhouse. The APC is responsible for establishing the overall goals and policies for the Club and Service Area.
The current members are:
Jim Hyman - Committee Chair and Finance Sub-Committee Liaison
Eileen Ruth - Committee Co-Chair and Maintenance Sub-Committee Liaison
Jeri Lambdin - Events Sub-Committee Liaison
Jason Roland - Cafe Operations Sub-Committee Liaison
Ran Sailer - Committee Secretary
The APC meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the clubhouse Multi-Purpose Room. These meetings are open to Artisan Park homeowners, and we encourage you to attend, so you will know what is happening in the Service Area that may affect you.
There is a homeowners comment period at the beginning of each meeting when homeowners can express concerns or ask questions so long as they do not exceed 3 minutes. There are 4 subcommittees of the APC. These are comprised of volunteers from the community. They cover Finances, Maintenance, Special Events and Café Operations. Anyone can apply to join the subcommittees, and the meetings are open to Artisan Park homeowners.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE, THE APC IS SEPARATE AND DISTINCT FROM THE ARTISAN PARK CONDO BOARD***
APC Meeting Agendas and background information in APC members' meeting packets are available on the website. To access the background information, scroll down below the agenda.
In addition, the agendas are posted on the front door of the clubhouse.
There is an Artisan Club website: https://artisanparkclub.com/
which contains a wealth of information for homeowners. Please browse the website, especially in the "Members' Area".
We also are now doing periodic newsletters from the APC, and there are periodic e-mails sent to club members notifying them of club events, special happenings and dinner specials.
APC elections are staggered so three (3) members are elected one year, and two (2) the next year. Elections are held at the end of each calendar year, and results announced at the annual meeting in December. Ballots and election information are sent to each household well before the election, including instructions for electronic voting and early voting. Homeowners are entitled to vote once for each property owned.
Well in advance, homeowners are given an opportunity to indicate if they have interest in running for the APC. Business and management experience are a plus, but they are not mandatory.
