Some of the past and current activity where the LGA has become involved, represented, and influenced decision makers on issues and concerns include: aquatic weed control, community and water safety, environmental issues, fishing quality, water levels, boating safety, county services, government funding, taxes, land and water zoning, and the past relicensing process.
Members of the Lake Gaston Association are represented by a Board of Directors, composed of five directors representing each county, of which no more than one position may be filled by an at large director (a director who is not required to own property in the county he is representing).
One Director in each county serves as the County Coordinator of that county’s Directors. He is responsible for organizing and directing the activities of his Directors, including assigning Directors to cover government meetings, writing or reviewing meeting reports to share with LGA members, and meeting as needed to determine plans of action concerning county issues and concerns. The County Coordinator serves on the Government Relations Committee.
Most of the actual work of the LGA is done within its six committees – four of which (Lake Environment, Safety, Lake Clean Up, and Government Relations) are operational, and two (Marketing & Membership and Nominating) are administrative/support. The Education Committee is currently inactive. Committees are composed of Directors and LGA member volunteers. Committee Chairpersons must be Directors.
Monthly Membership Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month.Meetings begin at 9:30 a.m. and are held at the Lake Gaston Baptist Church (2378 Eaton Ferry Road, Littleton, across from the Subway Restaurant). Guest speakers are invited to address lake-related topics, and Committee Chairs provide reports of their activities.
