Volunteer! LPL elections 2014

The LPL is looking for a few good men and women to fill vacant board positions. If you are able to devote a little time to help our organization that protects and maintains our beautiful lakes area, please consider volunteering for one of these positions. Elections will take place during our August 6th meeting. Please contact Joel Johnson if you are interested.

Remember, small efforts from many people combine to accomplish large things!!!

Treasurer - This position is responsible for keeping the books for the LPL and providing financial statements.  The position requires attendance to the monthly meetings (nine per year) and an estimated two hours per month managing the books.

Board Member, Advertising - This position leads the effort to re-sign and recruit advertisers for the LPL Directory.  The incumbent attends monthly meetings and actively spends time in early Spring contacting the local retailers.

Board Member At Large - We have two board members whose terms are expiring and another that has resigned. These positions attend the monthly meetings (nine per year) and help with the direction of the LPL. They also assist with special projects as they arise, such as the Christmas Party and production of our yearly directory.

Join the Lakes Preservation League!

The  lakes are here for all of us to enjoy...but without an organization
committed to lake preservation and improvement, they may not be here for our children.  

The quality of life that we have grown accustomed to cannot be taken for granted.  Many changes take place that affect our lake environment positively or negatively.  We all need an organization that will try to make sure that changes are changes for the better.   

Yearly dues are $25.00 (January 1st though December 31st).
Along with your membership you will receive our monthly newsletter, The Preserver, as well as a subscription to The Michigan Riparian which is published quarterly.

Remember the Lakes Preservation League is a non-profit organization.  Your dues are tax deductible.  For further information contact Margaret Brighton, Membership Chairman, 517 547-7267.
