As individual taxpayers disbursed over two states and five counties, the influence we each have on local issues is diluted because of our geography. It is further diluted because of our high percentage of non-resident property owners unable to vote.
Politicians do, however, recognize the strength of our collective interests through the LGA. The LGA is the single body that represents the interests of property owners from all five counties and both states who contribute a significant amount to the county revenue. It is our membership base that results in our recognition and allows us to influence the decision-makers for Lake Gaston NC and Lake Gaston VA.
Our monthly member meetings generally feature a brief presentation and question and answer period by Guest Speakers from local county governments and other influential organizations.
LGA Directors reside full time in Lake Gaston VA & NC, and have daily access to news and issues concerning the Lake. Your Board is actively and heavily involved in the community, attends county meetings, serves on Boards of other organizations (i.e. the LG Weed Control Council, FERC Relicensing Committee, etc.), and reacts on behalf of our Members, to events that have an impact on our property values and enjoyment.
Working for You - Your Board of Directors consists of individuals with a remarkable amount of knowledge, expertise and talent, drawn from years of experience in industry and public service. The majority also volunteer their time with other civic organizations to improve the quality of life on Lake Gaston VA & NC.
(Phone & Email) - When emergency weather conditions or lake levels (high or low) become potentially hazardous to property owners, boaters, swimmers, etc., the LGA activates its "LGAlert" program, upon which the LGA Directors immediately implement a "telephone tree" process by phoning designated contacts of Homeowner Associations to alert them of the current or potentially hazardous situations that may warrant immediate attention. We also send an email to members with the Alert information.
When the conditions are not as potentially critical (and particularly helpful to non-resident property owners, or those without boat lifts), members of the LGA (who have provided an email address) are also sent an "LGAdvisory" to warn members that lake level conditions may warrant special attention.
