2017 Kuau Bayview Board of Directors
Luba Reeves - President & Landscaping Committee Chair
Luba & Fred Reeves and daughter Leah have lived on Maui since 2000. They have been homeowners in Kuau Bayview since 2009. Prior to 2000, the Reeves family had several successful businesses in San Francisco. Luba has extensive experience with homeowners' associations due to her real estate investments on Maui, currently belonging to 6 different Associations.
Luba has used her business & money management skills to save the Association a lot of money by keeping expenses down and ensuring that we get what we pay for. An Association run efficiently, with oversight and transparency, applying the CC&Rs with common sense and fairness, keeps property values up while preserving peace and good will within the community. Luba introduced the Board's Mission Statement in 2013 which has Kuau Bayview moving in a very positive direction. Luba is the savior who pulled Kuau Bayview out of its 'Lord of the Flies' period, no mean feat.

Tom Atkins - Treasurer & Retention Basin Committee
Tom Atkins moved from South Padre Island, TX, to KB in March 2012. He holds a Master's degree in Community Medicine from the University of Washington. He is a retired Dentist who served as a commissioned officer with the US Public Health Service for many years working primarily with Native American Indians. He is an avid researcher, an amateur botanist, and brings many other science-based skills to the table. In Texas, he was an active participant in many aspects of condominium life for 9 years, attending all annual meetings and filling in for the Property Manager on many occasions. As Chairman of the Repair Committee, he wrote a number of technical manuals for managing the equipment in the mechanical room, the elevator, the stairwell emergency lighting system, and the spa & swimming pool area.
Tom has saved the HOA thousands of dollars as a volunteer redesigning the irrigation system, removing problem trees, and clearing & hauling green waste to the dump. The excellent Retention Basin Maintenance Plan is the result of months of Tom's explorations and research in the basin and surrounding areas. He has taken steps to ensure that all aspects of storm water drainage in KB are maintained properly, including building revetements inside the new rock wall.
