Join the Board

GELIA’s effectiveness in helping to preserve this wonderful lake over the years has resulted from the combination of extraordinary member participation and the creativity and energy of its Board of Directors. As an association we have moved from a routine “property owners club” to a dynamic organization that thinks beyond our own water quality to address the health of the entire watershed (AWWA), interact with local and state governmental agencies (Acton, Wakefield, NH and ME), and take care of the immediate, daily needs of our lake (Lake Hosts, Weed Watchers, Boating Safety, Water Quality, Loon Watch, etc.).

As a result of these activities we are constantly on the lookout for new candidates for our Board of Directors to help improve these programs and/or to replace members whose terms have expired. Do you know anyone at Great East Lake who you feel would be a good candidate? Or are you the candidate? Does that person have the time and the possible skills that would help us do our job?

At this time we are particularly looking for people who have the following experience or interests:

  • Bookkeeping/Accounting
  • Marketing/Media Competence
  • Information Technology
  • General Non-Profit Leadership
  • Experience in Town Politics
  • Environmental Issues
  • Desktop Publishing
  • Fundraising

If you know of someone who might be a good candidate, please let us know. Send us an email at and we will contact you for more information. Thanks for your continuing support of GELIA.
