Friends Of Istokpoga Committees

Protecting Lake Istokpoga is the mission and goal of the Friends of Istokpoga. It takes more than attending meetings and complaining to help our lake. If you are willing to step up and do something, like those listed below,  please volunteer to help on one of our committees, please send us an E-Mail.

Here are our current committees and the volunteers who are the chairmen of each committee:

Membership/Public Relations
These committees are responsible for membership drives and public relationship.  Its focus is on increasing the membership.  The bigger the membership the bigger our voice.  Contact Gary Lamperelli if you can help with membership.
Finance
This committee is responsible for overseeing our books and creating our budget.  Contact Roger Williams.
Publicity
This committee is responsible for getting the association publicity and insuring the public and our members are aware of our meetings and special events. Contact Bert Galloway.
Newsletter
This committee is responsible for creating Istokpoga Newswire, our association newsletter. Contact Bill Dwinell if you have writing ability, or would like to help with the newsletter in other ways.
Fundraising
This committee is responsible for raising enough money so we do not need to increase our dues. The Special Recipes From Friends Of Istokpoga Cookbook is a good example of this.  This committee is also responsible for soliciting donations.  Contact Bert Galloway if you would like to make a tax deductible donation to Friends of Istokpoga Lake Association, Inc.
Legislative
This committee is responsible for track legislative actions that might affect Lake Istokpoga or other activities that could potentially affect water bodies that might eventually affect Lake Istokpoga. Contact Audry Vickers if you know of any items we should be tracking.
