Black Lake Association is interested in what subject would be of interest to you. We try to schedule speakers according to what the membership would like. If you have any suggestions, please submit them.


BLA depends entirely on the efforts of members. Beach representatives, board members and work teams are all volunteers. Please contact one of our board members or send an email to the address above if you would like to volunteer for any of the Association’s activities.

Please Help By Paying Your Membership Dues Early

Each year BLA relies on Beach Representatives to assist us in collecting annual dues and delivering new stickers. You can help by sending yours in early. The less time we spend collecting, the more time we have for other activities. Thanks for your help!
