The BLCA has printed a physical newsletter and calendar for the 2022 season. Road Reps will not be collecting the $30 membership fee due to the lingering concerns about COVID-19, instead we would like cottagers to send the fees directly to BLCA. Make life easier for our volunteers by sending your e-transfer to membership@blca.ca, or mail a cheque to us. The mailing address is on our “Contact” Page.

Additional details at the BLCA Membership page.

2012 Membership Survey

At the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in July, 2012, our members asked the Board to conduct a survey of members so that we would have a good base to decide how to spend our volunteer time and association dollars. Brian Deas and Diane Pick rose to the challenge. Brian, in consultation with the Board, created the survey questions. Diane set up the questions in Survey Monkey, the software we used to administer the survey. Both Brian and Diane put many hours into this project – our sincerest thanks for their efforts.

The survey of property owners on Belmont Lake was conducted in October of 2012. We sent emails to active members and former members inviting them to take the survey on-line. We mailed surveys to members for whom we did not have email addresses. In total we contacted 234 members and 88 former members. We received 161 completed surveys, 145 done on-line and 16 by mail.

The files below provide a more detailed analysis than we could provide in the 2013 Newsletter:
