ORGANIZATIONAL MEMBERS: Organizational members form the backbone of Wisconsin Lakes. More than 300 lake associations and lake districts commit every year to working together through Wisconsin Lakes to protect and preserve their own lake, as well as lakes in general statewide. In addition to helping to provide the resources necessary to support our educational and technical assistance programs that aid your organization, Wisconsin Lakes organizational members may designate ten of their own members to receive The Lake Connection, an electronic periodical focusing on stories and information helpful to organizations. Member associations in good standing are also eligible for Directors and Officers Insurance through an umbrella policy Wisconsin Lakes has negotiated with Horton Group. Lake organization dues are one of the primary sources of funding for our work with lake organizations, from one-on-one phone calls working through an issue, to building a campaign to pass legislation that benefits associations and districts.
