Welcome Members

The Georgian Bay Association (GBA) is in the process of reviewing its approach to the distribution of its newsletter “UPDATE”, which is printed and mailed to all members three times a year. We are looking to learn about your habits and preferences when receiving information from GBA through UPDATE.

As context, GBA’s mandate is wide-ranging, including the monitoring of water quality and water levels, fisheries, lands and forests, boating regulations, and invasive species. We advocate to governments on all levels on issues that concern our members, particularly on threats to the unique ecology of Georgian Bay. Among the GB5, we are the only organization focused on advocacy on behalf of our member cottagers.

The GBA’s communication tools include a robust website, emailing mini eUpdate newsletters on time sensitive issues, and publishing GBA UPDATE - our flagship newsletter. UPDATE is also posted to our website in PDF format.

The primary role of GBA UPDATE is to keep you apprised of important issues affecting members and Georgian Bay. We also cover general interest stories relating to the Bay.

As the world of communication is continuing to evolve, we feel it is a good time to examine our approach as to how we publish GBA UPDATE and get your input on what approach works best for you and your association.

We appreciate you taking a few minutes to give us your input so we can ensure that you continue to receive useful information in the way that best meets your needs as a member.
