Lake Gaston Weather
Welcome to the Lake Gaston Association
|The LGA is a citizens' organization that actively advocates and promotes the interests of households and businesses who own property in the two states and five counties of Lake Gaston. Each of the five counties surrounding Lake Gaston has four volunteer Director positions on the LGA Board, plus one at large position for a total of 25 Directors. We are a volunteer, non-profit, nonpartisan and nonsectarian organization, unified for greater influence with our federal, state and local officials and agencies that have management authority on and around Lake Gaston NC & VA.|
|Your Primary Voice on Lake Issues|
Celebrating 25 years in 2014
To identify lake issues affecting our members and pursue resolution with the responsible organizations.
LGA membership is comprised of both households and businesses on and around Lake Gaston NC & VA; many of whom have permanent homes elsewhere, and own vacation property on the Lake.
Our property owners are located in five counties that span the two states bordering Lake Gaston: North Carolina and Virginia. Because of our geographical disbursement, and the inability of many of our part time members to vote on local issues. The Lake Gaston Association actively provides them with a voice in all issues and concerns that could affect their enjoyment of the Lake.
A key service to our membership is keeping them informed and soliciting their feedback on those key issues and concerns through regular emails, a bi-monthly Bulletin, this web site, and periodic surveys. To learn more about the services the LGA provides and the projects we are involved in, we invite you to stroll through the pages of this site. If you are not a member, but own property in the Lake Gaston area, or simply have an interest in preserving the many benefits the Lake provides, consider adding your voice to ours by joining today.
LGA Runs on Volunteerism
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.
If you think the work of the Lake Gaston Association is worthwhile and would like to be part of this important effort, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will discuss how your services might best benefit the Association and the Lake Gaston NC & VA community.
