Back in January, we started the process to update the look, functionality, and content of the Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds website to better serve our mission and our members. Along with creating a new, updated look for the website, we also wanted to make it a destination for all the latest news, helpful information, and events associated with lakes and ponds in Vermont.
There is a new section called Protecting Lakes and Ponds that will contain helpful articles and resources related to water quality, shoreland protection, watersheds, and aquatic invasive species.
There is a Member Community area where members can maintain their profile, manage their membership, view the membership directory, and participate in a membership forum to discuss lake issues, and to share information.
The Events calendar will include FOVLAP events, and other lakes and ponds events throughout Vermont that may be of interest to our members.
The Latest News section contains 3 blogs: Lakes and Ponds News, Advocacy and Action, and Wise About Water – and they will keep you up-to-date on lakes and ponds related news and legislative updates.
Finally, the Our Work section contains pages for our mission, the listing of directors, committees, the bylaws, and board meeting summaries.
If you are a current member, your information will be imported to create an account for you on the website. We’ll send you information on how to log into your account for the first time soon. Also, if you had previously subscribed to Wise About Water or Legislative Updates, you’ll need to resubscribe using the subscription widget at the top of those pages.
Additional pages and functionality will be added over the next few months. After visiting the new site, If you have any comments, or suggestions for content that would be useful, please let us know – we’d love to hear your feedback. Just click the Contact button at the top of any page to send us a message.
Finally, thank you to the website committee for their hard work. The new site looks great, and we will continue to work to make it a valuable resource for our members, and for everyone who cares about Vermont lakes and ponds.
