The primary purpose of the Annual Meeting is to elect members of the Board of Directors who will serve the Association through November 2022 or 2023 depending on position, and provide a general overview of committee tasks and priorities.
Proxy forms and notices have been mailed to each homeowner or can be found here PROXY. Whether you plan to attend or not, it is crucial that you send in your proxy before the meeting. The proxy form allows you to assign your voting rights to another member of the association that is attending the meeting. This helps to ensure we reach the required quorum (percentage of representation of the community). If you do attend the meeting, your proxy form will be destroyed and you will be provided a ballot to cast your vote. Your Association needs your participation to establish quorum as a minimum of 82 homes (20%) need to be represented (either in person or by proxy) to meet quorum requirements in order to hold the meeting and elect a new board of directors.
On the proxy form, you have two options, 1) specifically name another member that you know is in good standing with the community and will be attending the meeting OR 2) opt to leave the name blank and the proxy will be assigned to the current BOD President. PLEASE BE SURE TO SIGN AND DATE THE FORM.

(RETURNING BOARD MEMBERS)
GINNY JACOBS, PRESIDENT
It is my honor to serve as the President for Myers Mill! I moved to Myers Mill in June 2017 and in the short amount of time I have lived here, I have witnessed what a real community is like. I look forward to continuing to build Myers Mill by developing the best possible solutions for our upcoming issues at hand in 2022. Our main priorities for 2022 are repairing the ponds, restoring and repairing the pavilion, and building our reserves so we can maintain our beautiful neighborhood. I feel we have made great progress in the past year with bringing our community together. One of my goals is to continue to grow our community through transparency and cohesion.
MICHELLE MCDONALD, VICE PRESIDENT, SECRETARY AND COMMUNICATIONS CHAIR
I bring over 15 years of experience in consultation for government, nonprofit and private industry sectors. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Winthrop University and a master’s degree in business administration from The Citadel. I currently serve as VP, Secretary, and Communications Chair for Myers Mill. I moved to the neighborhood in 2016 with a large family of 6 and have enjoyed the people, traditions and passion everyone has shown to make our neighborhood the best it can be. I have committed my life to serving others through my career and look forward to bringing that service to our community. I often work through resistance to ensure the long term success of my business partners and I believe being transparent, flexible and authentic is the key to representing and working with so many different personalities. My goal for the upcoming year is to build our reserve funds in a sustainable way, offering long term financial stability. I am excited to see what we can accomplish by working together and look forward to your continued feedback!
LAURA MARGOLIS, COMPLIANCE CHAIR
I’m married 34 years to Gary Margolis and we are originally from Long Island, NY, and moved to Summerville, SC in August 2010. We have raised two beautiful daughters together. Our oldest daughter blessed us with 2 grandchildren, a 7 year old girl and a 6 year old boy who are the greatest loves of our lives! I sell vintage, antique and one of a kind items, besides refinishing many different furniture items in a booth I rent at Katie Mae’s, located in Downtown Summerville.
NICOLE MUSAP, ACTIVITIES CHAIR
It is my pleasure to be the Activities Chair for Myers Mill. A neighborhood is only as great as the relationships formed in it. I firmly believe in the importance of coming together as a community and creating memories that will last a lifetime. My Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and experience in event planning makes this opportunity a good fit for me. I also currently work in marketing and virtual assistance and clearly understand how critical timeliness and proper communication are to getting tasks done and delivering important information to the community. I have lived in Summerville for 6 years now and have three young children. I also enjoy fitness, the outdoors, photography and travel.
Raised in Hershey, Pennsylvania, I always had a longing to live close to the beach. I earned a Bachelor’s in English, with a Minor in Print Media Studies from Millersville University. After marrying my husband, Brian, we lived in a small town in Pennsylvania, where I served our local church as a youth leader and worship leader. My previous work experience includes Editor in the Legislative Reference Bureau for the House of Representatives in Pennsylvania. I am familiar with reading/editing bills and amendments. When my first child was born, I retired from the state of Pennsylvania and directed all of my time to raising my kids. We moved to South Carolina in 2016, and Summerville in 2018.
Since moving to Myers Mill, I have been very active in cleaning the grounds. My daughter and I consistently walk around different areas in the front of Myers Mill, picking up litter and doing our part to help the Mill look beautiful. I would like to join the Board of Directors to continue making Myers Mill a wonderful place to live and raise children.
I think the priorities of the board should be to find ways to enhance the experience of those who live here and to ensure that high standards are kept within the community.
My name is Tinki Chapin, and I currently work as a Legal Assistant for Hall Booth Smith in Mt. Pleasant, SC. My husband and I moved to Myers Mill on May 6, 2021. I have three children: my oldest daughter, Tori, lives in Mt. Pleasant, SC, with her husband and two dogs; my second daughter, Alysa, lives in Manhattan, NY; and my youngest, Zane, is attending his senior year at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV.
I am a native of West Virginia and grew up in a small town, Clendenin, WV, and graduated early in the top 10% of my high school. I am one of six children and have a sister that lives in North Charleston and practices in Summerville as an OB/GYN. My parents were hard working business owners which is where my work ethic originated. My family was taught to support your hometown and give back to the community where you live, i.e., shop, church, taking care of neighbors, etc.
I graduated from West Virginia State College with an Associate in Science while working full time for an oil and gas company. I also attended Kaplan University through a virtual Paralegal program. I have worked in the energy industry for over 30 years and during that time owned and operated an income tax office. Most of my years have been spent working in a legal capacity or accounting. I’ve always worn many hats in any job I have worked and enjoy being around people in and out of an office setting.
During my years of living in Charleston, WV, I participated as a volunteer for the United Way of Kanawha Valley and served as a Fund Distribution Panel Member, Fund Distribution Chairman and on the Executive Board. I was the pianist for my church and was Director of an afterschool program for elementary aged children called “Children Come First.”
My past job experiences in legal and accounting as well as being a business owner have taught me to be open minded about people and their concerns. In the end, we all want the same thing – that is why communication is so important in serving on a Board.
My husband and I enjoy biking, hiking, walking, bowling, riding motorcycles, boating, camping, playing softball, and the beach, of course.
The current Board of Directors is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of all homeowners during this unprecedented time. The Annual Board Meeting will be held outside to ensure proper social distancing and attendees will need to bring their own chairs. Upon arrival, RealManage staff will view the license of each homeowner to verify residency to check individuals in to prevent physical contact as much as possible.
