Board of Directors
Stone Oak is a Master-Planned Community that includes both residential and commercial properties. The Stone Oak Board of Directors consists of five residential representatives, five commercial representatives, and a Board-elected Chairman.  
A Board Director must be an individual or entity that is a member of the Stone Oak Property Owners Association (SOPOA), therefore a Stone Oak property owner.  Once elected, they serve a two-year term, and may be placed on the ballot at the end of the term for re-election if desired. Directors are volunteers, are not compensated for their time, and act in accordance with the Governing Documents of the Association (which can be found on this website under the "Governing Documents" tab.)  

Per the governing documents of the Stone Oak Property Owners Association, there will be an Annual Meeting of the membership on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at 7:00PM at the Club at Sonterra, 901 E. Sonterra Blvd, San Antonio, TX  78258.  At the meeting, three Stone Oak commercial property owners and three Stone Oak residential property owners will be elected to the Board, each to serve for a two-year term.
A Call for Candidates was included in the November 2019 Stone Oak Newsletter, and was posted on this website.  Interested candidates had to submit their forms by close of business November 27, 2019. 
2020 Candidates are as follows:
Residential Candidates (in random order):
Viki Melton
Ms. Melton loves the Stone Oak community.  As she is a realtor, she understands residents’ concerns, and joined the Board years ago to ensure property values were protected – not only for herself, but for all property owners- and potential future Stone Oak property owners.  In addition to her current POA Board seat, she also currently serves as President of the Big Springs HOA, as a member of the Stone Oak POA Architectural Review Committee, and as the Chairman of the Stone Oak POA Neighborhood Representative Committee (NRC).   The NRC is an integral part of the POA as it serves as the go-between for the POA and the community HOAs.  Ms. Melton keeps in constant contact with all Representatives, and makes them aware of any concerns so they can alert their communities.  This group also works to provide suggestions to the POA as to how funds can be used to benefit the community as a whole- such as the playground cover in Stone Oak Park.  She is also involved with many District 9 office Committees.  Ms. Melton was part of the past US281 EIS Community Advisory Committee, the San Antonio District 9 Community Leaders Committee, and the San Antonio Classen-Steubing Ranch Park Project Committee.  In addition, she is a 2019 graduate of the prestigious City of San Antonio Neighborhood Leadership Academy, and also served as a Valero Texas Open Ambassador.  She has worked hard to ensure Stone Oak remains a much-desired community within San Antonio, and hopes to continue to bring strength to the area and property owners.
Ken Piland
Mr. Piland has lived in the Stone Oak area for over 20 years.  He served on the Stone Oak Advisory Board from 2000 to 2007, and has served on the Stone Oak POA Board of Directors since 2008.  He has been the Stone Oak POA Board Secretary since 2009, and the Stone Oak POA Architectural Review Committee Chairman since 2010.   In his professional life, Mr. Piland works as a Homeowners Association Manager within San Antonio for 4,100 homes, and is a Certified Manager of Community Associations.  As a long-standing Board member, Mr. Piland works to ensure the Stone Oak Master Plan is upheld, and the Stone Oak community continues to be one of the most desired communities within San Antonio.
Joe Silman
Mr. Silman has lived in the Stone Oak area for 14 years.  He originally served on the Stone Oak Advisory Board, was appointed to the Stone Oak Board of Directors when property owners assumed responsibility, and has assumed leadership roles within the Association since 2007.  Mr. Silman has been a long-standing member of the Stone Oak POA Aesthetics Committee, which oversees the landscaping and care of the often admired Stone Oak medians, and has worked to ensure maintenance and water conservation are at the forefront.  He has also long-served as a member of the Finance Committee, bringing the benefits of his financial background to the table.  In the past, he has also served as Chairman-of-the-Board, and most recently has served as POA Board President.  Mr. Silman has the experience and continuing interest in ensuring Stone Oak remains a special community. 
Robert Hernandez
Mr. Hernandez comes from a law enforcement background.  He currently is part of his HOA's Neighborhood Watch Group, and wishes to utilize his neighborhood leadership abilities to assist with the leadership of Stone Oak.  He would like to ensure the Stone Oak POA takes active measures to prevent crime in the area. 
Commercial Candidates (in random order):
JP Morgan Chase – Appointed Representative:  Emmy Tamez
One of the largest employers within Stone Oak, JP Morgan Chase, has appointed Emmy Tamez as their representative.  Ms. Tamez has served on the POA Board over the past two years, after assuming the seat from the previously appointed Chase representative.  In addition to her POA Board seat, Ms. Tamez also currently serves at the POA Finance Committee Chairman.  Her financial expertise and knowledge, as well as her management experience, continue to be a benefit to the Association.  Ms. Tamez enjoys the Stone Oak community, and continues to strive to enhance the beauty and benefits for its residents, while ensuring finances are utilized efficiently and fairly.
North Central Baptist Hospital – Appointed Representative:  Paul Topinko
As an employee of North Central Baptist Hospital, Mr. Topinko brings his leadership and professional skills to the table to assist the Stone Oak community.  He currently oversees day-to-day activity at North Central Baptist Hospital, and works with a team to ensure emergency management related planning and preparedness efforts.  His objective as a Board member is to continue to assist the residents of Stone Oak, uphold restrictions, and ensure property values.
RICHKA - Appointed Representative:  Greg Barnes
Mr. Barnes is excited to be appointed by RICHKA as their representative, especially since he also calls the Stone Oak area home.  He is currently employed by Broadway Bank, and has worked within community banks and credit unions for 20 years, cementing his strong knowledge of finances and business.  He wishes to apply his experience with multi-million budgets, complex organizations, and leadership, along with his business expertise and past HOA Board President experience, to help the Stone Oak community remain the beautiful community we love.  He has noted as a Board member, he would work to preserve the beauty of Stone Oak, protect property values, improve landscaping, trees, and water management, and ensure dues are kept affordable and used wisely, always ensuring fair and efficient management.  Mr. Barnes formerly served as Board President at his former POA in Las Vegas, representing 1,400 homes, where he helped his neighbors fight school overcrowding, as well as developers trying to develop outside the scope of set restrictions.  Mr. Barnes sees it as his responsibility to give back to the community by volunteering to ensure Stone Oak remains a great place to work and live.
