News about Lake Gaston, the LGA and more!
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.
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. The Lake Gaston Association actively provides them with a voice in all issues and concerns that could affect their enjoyment of the Lake.
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.
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 the 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 five standing Committees – Lake Environment, Government Relations, Public Safety, 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.
