About the Association
The Big Cedar Lake Stewardship Association is non-profit corporation (BCLSA) and was formed on in spring of 2011, initially to find a way to control the amount of weed that has spread throughout a significant part of the lake in the past three years. The first Annual General Meeting was held on the 24th of May weekend with a large attendance.
As outlined in the objectives of the Association a broader mandate from the members is anticipated, looking at the general stewardship of the watershed and lake. It is hoped that the members will become more connected and the general welfare of the lake will benefit from these linkages.
There are 127 cottages on the lake of which 80 have become members as of June 2012. The goal is to have 100% membership so that we can all be represented and contribute to the well-being of our wonderful lake. The knowledge and experiences of all those who value Big Cedar lake will make the Association a stronger entity and will lead to better understanding of issues by all who use the lake.
The BCLSA is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who manage the day to day activities of the Association reporting the membership at large. The incorporation of the Association calls for a Board of 10 members or the number who stand at an Annual General Meeting. For 2011 8 members make up the Board. The Board elects the officers from its members.
Members of the Board are:
David Clutton Jr.
Various committees are created and have volunteer members who agree to work as required to carry out the committee objectives/goals.
