Wallenpaupack Communities Association (WCA) has announced its yearly schedule of topics of interest to all communities around the lake. The WCA meets on the second Saturday of each month from April to October, 8:30 a.m. at the PPL Environmental Learning Center located on Route 6.
The WCA will hold its first meeting of 2010 on April 10. Speakers will include representatives from PPL. Many chances have taken place in the past year with staffing and procedures. Katie Lester, newly named Manager for Community Relations for Lake Wallenpaupack will lead the program with other PPL representatives to review both the commercial and residential permitting procedures as well as other topics of interest pertaining to the Lake.
The WCA is looking forward to a productive slate of topics this year.
Various presentations will be made such as:
April 10 - PPL Representatives – Lake Wallenpaupack
May 8 –  Roads & Drainage – Joe Podunajec, Wayco Construction
June 12 – Insurance Topics - Bob Travis, CAUA
July 10 – PA Fish & Boat Com. - Bob Plumb; Coast Guard Auxiliary and Lake Watch
August 14 – Local Representative to discuss Regional current events
September 11 – PA elected official to discuss local political affairs
October 9 – Round Table Discussion.
“If you work, volunteer or live in a private association you will find the above topics of interest to you and your community.” said WCA officials. If you are having a particular situation in your community feel free to bring it up for discussion. WCA members have received help from other communities who experience similar situations.
The WCA was organized to educate and relay information to the communities surrounding Lake Wallenpaupack. It is especially important for smaller private communities that do not have professional staff. This year’s topics will be very informative to anyone associated with a private community association, especially to anyone in a leadership role.
Programs normally run about one hour and time is always set aside after the presentation for a question and answer session. The WCA is open to anyone interested in coming to hear the speaker. Membership is available which will guarantee you that notices and minutes will be sent to you.
Membership fees are $25.00 for Associations and $5.00 for individuals. Checks can be sent to Wallenpaupack Communities Association, c/o Ms. Marge Sellen, P.O. Box 457, New Milford NJ 07646 or you can submit it at the first meeting.
