Members gain representation through the strength of an established and vocal association.

Members receive news updates, voter information, association updates and messages from the board on a variety of topics important to property owners along the lakeshore.

Members are provided information by a board that actively monitors local governmental units and reviews current and upcoming issues at monthly meetings.

Members are encouraged to attend the annual membership meeting luncheon–an opportunity to share concerns with the association and participate in an informative presentation of current issues affecting property values, water conditions and environmental protection and preservation.


Other than the ECLAʼs annual member dues, we have not been a fundraising organization. While we ask for your support in the defense of the tribal litigation due to the large expenses in defending our rights in the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Tribal Lawsuit, we will not contact you to donate funds. We need you as members and we believe you need ECLA as a unified voice representing our area. We invite you to become a member of ECLA, a nonprofit property ownersʼ association.


Annual membership dues are $25/individual and $50/household. Sustaining member’s dues are $150. Please make checks payable to Emmet County Lakeshore Association and return with a membership form to:

Emmet County Lakeshore Association
P.O. Box 277
Harbor Springs, MI 49740

Please remember to include your full name, address, phone number and email so that we may contact you. “In unity there is strength.”
