Membership and Social

The M & S Committee was formed to attract new people and have them become members of the DCLA. Our aim is to provide value by creating a sense of community; recognizing that our members have a strong interest in learning, coming together and being a part of something important.

Our primary purposes are:

  1. To build and maintain our membership of permanent and seasonal residents to welcome new members and to manage all aspects of our membership database.
  2. To organize and coordinate educational opportunities, social events, sale of DCLA items and orchestrate an annual social event that coincides with our AGM.

The M & S Committee meets monthly and always welcomes new members. There is lots to do!

For the upcoming year (until September 2021), we plan on the following:

  • Conduct a membership survey to determine needs and interests of our members
  • Set up a Facebook group if this is determined to be a benefit
  • Streamline new member welcome procedure to include welcome package
  • Overhaul website to make it more user friendly and inviting for members and potential members
  • Analyze where our members are on the lakes and use this information to target non-member areas
  • Develop the concept of road stewards whereby all the lanes and roads have a dedicated DCLA member who is a resource for their community
  • Coordinate three virtual educational opportunities
  • Coordinate two outdoor winter events; skating and Winterfest; weather permitting
  • Coordinate a covid compliant outdoor event at the Upper Brewer’s Locks in the spring
  • Conduct a tree sale
  • Coordinate an annual social gathering around the AGM
