About the POASC Board
In 1991 the Property Owners Association of Spanish Cove (POASC) was established as a non-profit Alabama Corporation to acquire the common areas, including two clubhouses, recreational facilities, wilderness areas and roads.
A 9-member elected Board of Directors is charged with the maintenance, repair, renovation and restoration of these amenities for the property owners. A yearly assessment (currently less than $700) is budgeted to provide these services. Board members are limited to serve two consecutive three-year terms. Three members are elected by the membership each year. Term expires March 31 of the year in brackets below. Restrictive Covenants that run with the land provide land use requirements for property owners. Speed limits, rules for use of the amenities and other regulations are established by the Board of Directors to provide a harmonious atmosphere for all.
Committees chaired by members of the Board of Directors include Activities, Communications, Finance, Plans Development and Maintenance (PDM), Rules and Administration, and Safety and Roads and Drainage.  By POASC ByLaws, no board member serves on the Nominations and Elections Committee or the Internal Review Committee, although the Chair of the Board appoints those committee chairs.  The POASC Board Chair also appoints a Regional Concerns representative who serves as liaison with local, county and state authorities. 
The POASC Board meets at 9 a.m. on the second Thursday of each month as needed for a Working Session.  The Regular Meeting of the POASC Board takes place at 6:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month.  All POASC Board meetings are held at the Cove Clubhouse.  Spanish Cove property owners are always encouraged to attend these meetings and voice their opinions and ideas.

Roads/Drianage and Safety Committee Chair
Lani Cameron (2024)
I am honored to serve the Property Owners of Spanish Cove as a Board Director.
My husband Ken and I moved to Spanish Cove from Kansas City, Missouri.  We discovered Spanish Cove after Ken competed in an Iron Man Competition in Panama City in 2014.  We purchased our little fixer upper in 2015 and proceeded to carve out our piece of paradise while remaining employed in Kansas City. Since Ken can work from home and I was able to retire in 2018, we sold our home in Kansas City and moved full time to Spanish Cove in February 2019.
I am a graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree.  Prior to my retirement, I was a
Supervisor for the State of MO-Dept. of Health & Senior Services. I supervised the Northwest Region (27 Counties) Customer Service/Evaluation Team.  My team assessed and determined eligibility for Medicaid in home services for Seniors and Disabled individuals.  I also supervised a team of protective service investigators. 
It is my goal as a Board Director on the POASC Board to make sure the neighborhood properties, infrastructure and amenities are maintained and to facilitate the wishes of the majority of property owners in the association.

I am Gordon Lett and live at 1156 Ridgewood Drive in Spanish Cove. I was born and raised in N.W. Ohio where I graduated from high school, then entered the U.S. Air Force for 4 years. After completing my 4-year requirement, I attended Tri State College “now Trine University” completing a drafting and design course. At 26 I married my wife Winona Kay of 52 years and leased my 1st roller skating rink. After 3 years I then purchased our first rink and went on to purchase our 2nd rink several years later. We ran skating rinks for 18 years. At 45 we moved to Indian River Michigan where I was plant foreman, school bus driver and along with my wife drove semi-trucks for 6 years. In the year 2000 my wife and I were named drivers of the year for Gainey Transportation out of 1200 drivers.

                  In 2005 we started coming South to the Foley area. In 2014 we purchased our home on Ridgewood Drive. That was the best move we ever made. For us the Cove is a good fit. I have participated in many Cove projects and activities. I served on the Roads and Drainage committee and also the Communications Committee. I have helped in putting up the dome and taking down of the dome over the pool, also I have helped decorate for Christmas. I also deliver the monthly update in our area. I have also served on the Elections Committee.        

                My other interests are swimming, walking “I’m the guy in the orange shorts and bright green shirt”. I also enjoy woodworking and fishing. I also enjoy letting my dog, Charley, take me for a walk. I am a member of the Lillian Fellowship Church here in the cove.
