The Lake Anna Civic Association, an all-volunteer organization, was formed in 1992 by the late Jack Bertron with a focus on preserving, conserving and protecting Lake Anna. The goal is to keep Lake Anna and its watershed a clean and beautiful place to live and enjoy recreational opportunities while working to keep growth compatible with the area.
LACA is led by an 11-member board of directors elected by the membership at the annual meeting held the last Saturday of July. Each board member serves a two-year term with half elected each year. Members of the board include the president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and assistant treasurer along with six regional directors representing Louisa, Spotsylvania & Orange counties.
Board meetings, open to members and the public, are held the first Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, 3091 Mt. Pleasant Church Road, Louisa, VA.
The six Regional Directors represent the members in their areas, which typically follow the magisterial districts, on issues and concerns specific to that region as well as the lake overall.
LACA is guided by a set of by-laws and articles of incorporation. It has met the requirements to be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Mission and goals have been identified and a policy manual guides the Board of Directors in operating procedures. Funding for all activities is through annual membership dues, contributions, and grants from the counties, state agencies and private organizations.
Household memberships are available for one, two or three years at rates of $15, $28 or $40 respectively.
