President's Corner

PRESIDENT’S CORNER September 8, 2020 Kevin G. McGrath


I hope you enjoyed your Labor Day Weekend!

Please join me in welcoming in another new BCL year.  Our Association works on a fiscal year that begins on September 1st each year.

I would like to thank the members who participated in the first (and hopefully last) Zoom, annual meeting.  Our technology worked well, a lot of good information was presented, and members had an opportunity to comment and ask questions and receive answers. That said, I miss seeing everyone in person.

I would like to let all members know the results of the election and the new officers for the coming year. Bill Gullone, Todd Laudenschlager, Madeline Ligenza TJ, McKeon, and Bob Skiffington were each elected to a 3-year term.  Derek Dailey and Kevin McGrath were elected to one-year terms.

At the reorganization meeting, the following officers were elected:

  • Kevin McGrath President,

  • Todd Laudenschlager Vice President,

  • Madeline Ligenza Secretary and

  • Derek Dailey Treasurer

The Board will hold a special board meeting on Saturday, September 19th at 9:00 AM via Zoom.  Meeting notice and agenda will be posted in the near future to both the community website (( and the Bear Creek Lakes Communication Page on Facebook. As a reminder, these sites are where you will find all official communication from the board; no other web pages are monitored by the association.  All members are encouraged to attend the monthly board meetings.  Check the website to confirm meeting details. It will be updated in the near future.

The entire board is looking forward to a productive year.  There are some challenges facing our community and I will strive for openness, transparency and ongoing communication.  Our success as a community is dependent on positive support and constructive suggestions from all members. 

Thank you for the opportunity to work with you all!
