13 Candidates will Run for Election to Fill Two Board Seats

(Image: Directors Diana Mezzanotte and Sue Schaffer will end their board service term in March 2021.)

The Kiawah Island Community Association’s (KICA) annual board election will open for voting on Jan. 6, 2021. 13 of your neighbors will vie for two board seats, which will open in March 2021. The elected candidates will serve the community on the board for three years. By the end of the month, all candidates will provide written statements to the community and will participate in a brief video interview. Before voting opens, you’ll get the chance to hear from each candidate unscripted at a modified Meet the Candidates video premiere event.

The association would like to thank all 13 candidates who are willing to represent the interests of the community through board service!
