Welcome to MA COLAP
Dear members and friends of MA COLAP,
Welcome to the MA COLAP website. Communications is our product. Managing communications for MA COLAP is a Board of Directors consisting of four officers and five at-large members. Each member association has one vote and is responsible for electing the officers and at-large Board members. Each association is also responsible for sending and receiving communications about lake and pond issues. We are only as good as this communication effort. We encourage you to share with us your lake and pond problems and solutions including your involvement with your boards of health, conservation commissions and other local government bodies.
I mentioned at the January workshop our desire to support additional chapters of MA COLAP in the eastern, northeastern and Cape Cod areas of the state as well as revive the Central MA COLAP chapter. The model for a successful chapter continues to be LAPA West in western Mass. Local chapters can create a local forum for exchanging ideas to solve lake and pond management issues. To do this we need volunteers. Contact any member of the Board of Directors or me if you are interested in a chapter in your area.
Please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions.
