Message from the Chairman-
 
We have had both positive and negative responses to advertising in the E-NEWS. So far the positive responses have exceeded the negative responses. However, the board felt it necessary to issue a response regarding advertising in the E-NEWS and OCA Website. The board endorses the use of advertising in OCA publications for several reasons.
 
First the OCA is a volunteer home owners association, this means that membership is not mandatory as in some of the newer developments, especially those on the North Shore. In those developments monthly dues are paid and those funds are used for the same type of activities sponsored by the OCA. The monthly dues can run as much as $25.00 or more. The OCA in comparison operates on a membership fee of $35.00 PER YEAR.
 
In addition, without the ability to require mandatory membership our membership stands at about 15% of the total number of homeowners in the development. This level of support from the community makes it impossible to operate without other sources of revenue such as advertising and/or special events such as the 5K run. Additionally, our business members provide needed or desired services and support the community through employment of residents and their families. As such, we fee it necessary to give them the opportunity to make the community aware of what they have to offer as well. We hope this explanation provides our members with a good understanding of why we support advertising in our publications. Thanks for your responses.
