Dear Fellow Property Owner-
First and foremost, thank you for your continuing membership with the Deep Creek Lake Property Owners' Association. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I hope you enjoyed 2018 at Deep Creek Lake.
It's that time again to renew your membership. Dues are just $30 per year - directions on how to pay them are below my signature in this email and as we told you in an earlier email, we've rolled out an online dues payment process to make it even easier. Already convinced? Click here to jump down to the dues renewal process.
Need more convincing? We think the the $30 annual dues for membership is the best value on the lake. Our mission is to advocate on behalf of our members, many of whom are part-time residents of the Deep Creek Watershed. In so doing we strive to promote, preserve, and protect the quality of life, recreational opportunities, and historic sites and areas on the lake and its watershed. Your dues support this mission in a variety of ways.
If your membership lapses, you'll miss out on timely and critical news items, and limit our ability to continue lake safety education efforts.
Our unpaid Board members take the time to attend these meetings, and do the background legwork to serve on committees to ensure fair representation of Lake and watershed area property owners’ interests (many of whom are deprived of a vote for local officials since they are second home owners).
In recognition of the work we have done that “that demonstrate(s) improvements in lake/reservoir condition or watershed management in a cost-effective manner”, the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) awarded the POA with their 2018 “Lake Management Success Award”. The receipt of this award was also officially recognized by our State Senator, George Edwards.
A healthy membership helps us to make stronger cases to officials and other stakeholders when we are representing your interests.
Your dues help us to provide funding to these types of projects which benefit all lake area and watershed property owners and would have likely foundered otherwise.
If you're still not convinced and don't plan to renew your membership, we would be grateful if you would take a few seconds to complete this three question survey here. This helps us provide better service to our members and hopefully move the scales enough for you to join!
You’ve already made a (likely sizable) investment in this beautiful area - make sure you spend the extra $30 per year to help protect that investment! We’re looking forward to having you on board for another year!
