Jeff Adams-Biography

I grew up in Connecticut and after graduating from college in Vermont with a B.A. in Liberal Arts.  I joined the Coast Guard and served on a Search and Rescue Cutter out of Cape May, N.J. before being transferred to two different duty assignments on Governor’s Island, N.Y. where I was responsible for Officer Records and transfers to foreign duty stations.

Upon discharge, I enrolled in a Masters program at Fordham University  and earned an M.A.T. in Secondary Social Studies and a permanent certificate in teaching Social Studies on the secondary level. My first teaching assignment was a position in a new school being built at a rehabilitation hospital for physically disabled children. I was responsible for developing curriculum for the Secondary School. I had an unlimited budget, which is unusual to say the least. 

As I needed to get certified in Special Education, I entered a Masters program at Teachers College, Columbia University and earned an Ed.M. in Supervision and permanent certifications in Special Education and Supervision. As part of my program, I had to do an internship. I interned with the Institute for Life Coping Skills housed at Teachers College.The Institute had developed a multi-media interactive program that taught participants career development and job search skills. The program is nationally recognized and I stayed on after receiving my degree as Director of Training. My primary responsibility was to train the staff of organizations that had purchased the program on how to implement it into their organizations. The program has 10 units representing 180 hours of instruction.

I moved on to work with 2 of the major Outplacement firms where I worked with major companies in the Utilities, Banking, Insurance, Telecommunications, Grocery, Manufacturing,  and Pharmaceutical industries that were going through major downsizings. In addition to these assignments that required extensive travel across the country, I established Resource Centers for AT&T and Northeast Utilities to allow affected employees to receive support in their job searches. 

As an Organizational Management Development Consultant, I have delivered programs in Germany and Korea in addition to programs in country.

Since moving to StoneHurst in 2006, I have served as an Interim Director of Career Services at Flagler College and as the President of the HOA here in StoneHurst. Currently, I am President of the St. Augustine Community Chorus, serve on the Board of the Northeast Florida Conservatory in Jacksonville, and as a Mentor in the St. Johns Co. Take Stock in Children program. I presently mentor   High School Freshman  at Bartram Trails and Creekside High Schools.

NEWS STORY OF THE MONTH
 

We’re Having What Kind of Meeting?

 

What’s the difference in a board meeting and a special meeting, or an annual meeting and a town meeting? Confused? Here’s some clarification.

Annual Meetings

Annual meetings—or annual membership meetings—are required by our governing documents, which specify when they’re to be conducted and how and when members are to be notified about the meeting. This is the main meeting of the year when members receive the new budget, elect a board, hear committee reports and discuss items of common interest.

Special Meetings

Special meetings are limited to a particular topic. The board can call a special meeting at any time, and they must notify all members in advance. The notice will specify the topic so interested members can attend. Special meetings give the board an opportunity to explore sensitive or controversial matters—perhaps an assessment increase. Members do not participate in the meeting, unless asked directly by a board member, but they have a right to listen to the board discussion.

Town Meetings

Town meetings are informal gatherings intended to promote two-way communication; full member participation is essential to success. The board may want to present a controversial issue or explore an important question like amending the bylaws. The board may want to get a sense of members’ priorities, garner support for a large project or clarify a misunderstood decision.

Board Meetings

Most of the business of the association is conducted at regular board meetings. Board members set policy, oversee the manager’s work, review operations, resolve disputes, talk to residents and plan for the future. Often the health and harmony of an entire community is directly linked to how constructive these meetings are.

Executive Session

The governing documents require the association to notify you in advance of all meetings, and you’re welcome—in fact, encouraged—to attend and listen. The only time you can’t listen is when the board goes into executive session. Topics that the board can discuss in executive session are limited by law to a narrow range of sensitive topics. Executive sessions keep only the discussion private; no votes can be taken. The board must adjourn the executive session and resume the open session before voting on the issue. In this way, members may hear the outcome, but not the private details.

Parties

Occasionally the association notifies all residents of a meeting at which absolutely no business is to be conducted. Generally these meetings include food and music, and they tend to be the best attended meetings the association has. Oh, wait! That’s a party, not a meeting. Well, it depends on your definition of meeting.
