The name of the corporation is Wilson Ranch Association, a Washington nonprofit corporation.The principal office of the corporation is located at 1938 Fairview Avenue East, Suite 300, Seattle, Washington 98102, but meetings of Members and Directors may be held at such places within the State of Washington as may be designated by the Board of Directors.



2.1 Purposes.The purposes for which the Association is formed are (i) to provide for the maintenance, preservation, and control of the Common Area which is part of the real property located in Okanogan County, Washington (Property), which has been submitted to the Amended and Restated Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, Restrictions, and Easements for Wilson Ranch recorded under Auditor’s File No. 3034705 in the official records of Okanogan County, Washington, as it may be amended, (Declaration); and (ii) to promote the health, safety, and welfare of the Owners of Wilson Ranch.

2.2 Assent.All present or future Owners, their family, present or future tenants, and their guests and invitees, and any other person using the facilities of Wilson Ranch in any manner are subject to the Wilson Ranch Documents, including these Bylaws.The mere acquisition or rental of any of the Lots in Wilson Ranch or the mere act of occupancy of one of the Lots shall constitute ratification and acceptance of these Bylaws.

2.3 Definitions.The defined terms used in these Bylaws shall have the meanings assigned to those terms in the Declaration.



3.1 Membership.The Association shall have two classes of voting membership:

Class A: Class A Members shall be all Owners, with the exception of Declarant.Each Owner shall be entitled to a specific number of votes figured as follows:

(i) one (1) vote for each Lot owned, according to the Plat recorded in the official records of Okanogan County, Washington;

(ii) one (1) vote for each residential Condominium Unit as shown on a Condominium Map recorded in the official records of Okanogan County, Washington;

(iii )in the case of a hotel, one-half (1/2) vote for each hotel room as noted in a statement of allocated votes signed by Declarant and filed with the Secretary of the Association regardless of whether any such room is a Condominium Unit so long as it is operated for hotel purposes.

The ownership interests enumerated in paragraphs (i) through (iii) above are sometimes referred to as “Voting Units” in these Bylaws.When more than one person holds an interest in any Voting Unit, all such persons shall be Members. The vote for such Voting Unit shall be exercised as they among themselves determine, and the Secretary of the Association shall be notified of such designation prior to any meeting.In the absence of such advice, the vote allocated to the Voting Unit shall be suspended in the event more than one person or entity seeks to exercise the right to vote.

Class B: Class B Member(s) shall be the Declarant and any successor of Declarant who takes title to all or part of the Property for the purpose of development and sale and who is designated as successor declarant in a recorded instrument executed by Declarant.Class B Members shall be entitled to three votes for each Voting Unit owned.The Class B membership shall terminate on either of the following dates, whichever occurs earlier:

(a) July 1, 2005; or

(b) the date on which Declarant voluntarily relinquishes its Class B membership, as evidenced by a notice recorded in the official records of Okanogan County, Washington.

From and after the termination of the Class B membership, Declarant and any designated successor shall be entitled to one vote for each Voting Unit owned.At such time, Declarant shall call a special meeting of Members to advise the membership of the termination of Class B status and to transfer control of the Association to the Class A Members.

3.2 Proof of Membership.Any person or entity, on becoming an Owner of a Lot, shall furnish to the Manager or to the Secretary of the Association a photocopy or a certified copy of the recorded instrument vesting that person or entity with an ownership interest, which instrument shall remain in the files of the Association.An Owner shall not be deemed to be a Member of the Association in good standing and shall not be entitled to vote at any annual or special meeting of Members unless this requirement is first met.



4.1 Annual Meetings.The first annual meeting of the Members shall be held within one year from the date of incorporation of the Association, and each subsequent regular annual meeting of the Members shall be held in the last week of March of each year on a date set by the Board of Directors at the hour of 7:00 p.m., unless otherwise specified.If the day for the annual meeting of the Members is a legal holiday, the meeting will be held at the same hour on the first day following the originally scheduled date which is not a legal holiday.

4.2 Special Meeting.Special meetings of the Members may be called at any time by the President of the Association or by the Board of Directors, or upon written request of the Members who are entitled to vote one-tenth (1/10) of all of the votes of the Class A membership.

4.3 Notice of Meetings.Written notice stating the place, day, and hour of each meeting, and, in case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be delivered not less than ten (10) days nor more than fifty (50) days before the date of the meeting, either personally or by mail, by or at the direction of the President, or the Secretary, or the persons calling the meeting, to the registered mailing address of each Member entitled to vote at such meeting. If mailed, such notice shall be deemed to be delivered when deposited in the United States mail addressed to the Member’s mailing address as it appears on the records of the Association, with postage thereon prepaid.

4.4 Quorum.The presence at the meeting of Members entitled to cast, or of proxies entitled to cast, twenty-five percent (25%) of the votes of each class of membership shall constitute a quorum for any action except as otherwise provided in the Wilson Ranch Documents.If, however, such quorum shall not be present or represented at the meeting, the Members entitled to vote at the meeting shall have power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present or be represented.

4.5 Voting by Mail.The Board of Directors may decide that voting of the Members shall be by mail with respect to any properly noticed matter, any particular election of Directors, any proposed amendment of any of the Wilson Ranch Documents, or adoption of a proposed plan of merger, consolidation, or dissolution.In the case of a vote by mail relating to any properly noticed matter, or any proposed amendment to any of the Wilson Ranch Documents, or adoption of a proposed plan of merger, consolidation, or dissolution, the Secretary shall give written notice to all Members, which notice shall include (i) a proposed written resolution setting forth a description of the proposed action, (ii) a statement that such persons are entitled to vote by mail for or against such proposal, (iii) a statement of a date not less than twenty (20) days after the date such notice shall have been given by which all votes must be received, and (iv) the specified address of the principal office of the corporation to which all votes must be sent.Votes received after that date shall not be effective.Any such proposal shall be adopted if approved by the affirmative vote of not less than a majority of the votes of each class entitled to be cast on such question unless a higher proportion of the votes is required by any of the Governing Documents.Delivery of a vote in writing to the principal office of the corporation shall be equivalent to receipt of a vote by mail at such address for the purpose of this Section.

4.6 Proxies.Any Member may cast such Member’s vote in person or by proxy, but no proxy shall be valid after eleven months from the date of its execution unless otherwise provided in the proxy.Proxies shall be filed with the Secretary at or before the appointed time of each meeting.

4.7 Designation of Voting Representative—Proxy.If title to a Lot is held by more than one individual, by a firm, corporation, partnership, association, or other legal entity, or any combination of such parties, a proxy must be executed and filed with the Secretary appointing and authorizing one person or alternate persons (who may be a tenant of the Owner) to attend all annual and special meetings of Association Members and to cast the vote or votes allocated to that Lot at the meeting.Such proxy shall be effective and remain in force for eleven months from the date of its execution unless voluntarily revoked, amended, or sooner terminated by operation of law; provided, however, that within thirty (30) days after such revocation, amendment, or termination, the Owner or Owners shall reappoint and authorize one person or alternate persons to attend all annual and special meetings as provided by this Section.

4.8 Waiver of Notice.Waiver of notice of a meeting of the Members shall be deemed the equivalent of proper notice. Any Member may, in writing, waive notice of any meeting of the Members, either before or after such meeting.Attendance at a meeting by a Member, whether in person or by proxy, shall be deemed waiver by such Member of notice of the time, date, and place of the meeting, unless such Member specifically objects to lack of proper notice at the time the meeting is called to order. Attendance at a special meeting shall also be deemed waiver of notice of all business transacted at the meeting unless objection to the calling or convening of the meeting, of which proper notice was not given, is raised before the business is put to a vote.

4.9 Majority of Owners.As used in these Bylaws, the term “majority” shall mean those votes, Owners, or other groups as the context may indicate totaling more than 50 percent of the total number.

4.10 Conduct of Meetings.The President shall preside over all meetings of the Association, and the Secretary shall keep the minutes of the meeting and record in a minute book all resolutions adopted at the meeting, as well as a record of all transactions occurring there.
