Types of Membership:
1) A "Voting Membership" is limited to two individuals per property and the owner(s) must have water frontage or deeded access to property from the inlet at Cedar Bridge Creek to the Grant’s Creek dam. Each voting membership carries with it the right to one vote on all motions at any Annual General or Special meeting, and sit on the Board of Directors and/or committees.
2) An "Associate Member" is a person who has an interest in Pike Lake, holding a current paid up association membership in the Association. An Associate Member receives all benefits of membership except for recorded vote rights. An Associate Member can sit on a committee, but cannot hold a Board position.
