As you will note as you peruse the pages of this web site, the Lake Gaston Association is heavily involved in protecting and preserving our Lake Gaston Community on many fronts. The work involved in educating ourselves, keeping our members informed and pursuing resolution of issues is extensive.
With the exception of our part time Executive Director, all this extensive work is performed by dedicated volunteers. The goal for the makeup of our six standing Committees – Government Relations, Environment, Public Safety, Planning and Development, Marketing and Membership and Lake Clean Up – is to have volunteer members from each of our five counties represented on each of these Committees. In addition, each of our volunteer Directors is expected to serve on at least two of these committees.
When our Board and each of our Committees are fully staffed, the time requirement for each volunteer is minimal, and the work can be lots of fun. Not only do they get to serve their respective communities, but also they learn the inner workings of local governments and the other organizations that can have a significant impact on the quality of life here at Lake Gaston.
