Forming and Running a Lake Association

Creating and managing a lake association is hard work, if you do it right. There are many types of lake organizations, including homeowners associations, watershed alliances, and lake management districts. They differ in the details of formation and their power over members, including taxation, rulemaking, and enforcement. Communication is a central and critical role of each, and can take many forms. Overall, there is a lot to know before starting a lake association and still more to know to run one successfully. NALMS produced a very useful pamphlet on this topic back in the 1980s, which is out of print and out of date, although it still has some great insights and advice. Producing a new, updated version would be another great service for NALMS or NECNALMS to offer. Just sayin’…
