In 2013 the SLIA board started the member email communication initiative.  It has proven to be one of our most successful programs to date.  Emails are issued advising of upcoming events, such as invasive treatment dates, Adopt-a-road cleanups, fishing tournaments, 4th of July beachball and regatta information and many others.  We also advise of issues coming before the townships that might impact Silver Lake and it's residents. 

The most successful of all has been the lost and found advisements - many residents have been reconnected to their property through this means!  (The representative from the sheriff's department at this year's annual meeting commended us and shared that he has been recommending this program to other area lake association boards!)

This is a members only benefit, when you send in your membership form and dues (Only $25 per year), you specifiy that you wish to receive these communications and provide your email address and you are included!  (Your address is not shared).  If you have been meaning to sign up, now is the time - just go to membership, download the form and send it in today!  If you have any questions, just reply to this website.
