Pursuant to Section 7A-38.3F of the North Carolina General Statutes, all members of the Cypress Island Town Home Association are hereby notified that they have a right to initiate mediation in accordance with the terms of the statute to try to resolve a dispute with the Association.  The member and the Association must agree to mediate the dispute, and must split the cost of the mediation, including payment of the fees of a professional mediator.  The mediation process provides an opportunity for the parties to reach an agreement resolving their dispute.  Neither party gives up their right to go to court to have a judge resolve the dispute if an agreement cannot be reached through mediation.  The specific process for the initiation and conduct of voluntary mediation is outlined in Section 7A-38.3 of the North Carolina General Statutes.
