When you become an owner of lake property, you not only realize a personal dream, but become part of a wonderful community. Membership in the LVA is an important way for you to not only get involved with that community, but help protect the value of your investment for years to come.
Membership is open to all permanent and seasonal residents of Lake Vernon and the surrounding area. The annual cost is $45.00 per family (as of January 2021) and payment should be made through PayPal. The option to pay in person is also available at the AGM in June.
