2023 ANNUAL MEETING

UPDATE: Our newly elected board members are Kelly Intagliata and Robert Mandarino. Officers will be officially appointed at the special board meeting on November 14, 2023. Residents may register to attend the meeting here.
 
Those of you who have attended an annual meeting have come to expect an event crafted with imagination and attention to detail. This year, we will travel back 100 years to the roaring 20s!  

Come as a flapper or come as you are,
Dress as a gangster or silent screen star,
It’s going to be fun no matter the dress,
Just bring yourself and we’ll do the rest!
 
 
Las Sendas is excited to announce its 2023 Annual Meeting on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 at 6 pm. Plan to celebrate all that we've accomplished over the past year, learn the results of our board election, and be entered to win exciting prizes! No registration is necessary to attend.
