The Wasa Lake Land Improvement District Board has five trustees who are elected at the annual AGM for a three year period. Trusteeship is strictly volunteer; there is no remuneration. Terms are staggered to encourage continuity of activities and goals. In 2013, trustees volunteered (a conservative estimate) 800 to 1000 hours. Other community volunteers also helped, for which we are very appreciative.
Sharon Prinz, Chair of the Board 2017-18 Sharon purchased property at Wasa in 1976, and made Wasa her full time home in 2006 when she retired from a career as Nursing Supervisor. Sharon believes that involvement in the Land Improvement District provides opportunities to increase her knowledge about the lake and the community. She strives to represent all property owners in the quest for a healthy lake that benefits everyone who relies on it for business, recreation, and a place to call home. When she’s not logging in hours as trustee, Sharon finds time to volunteer with the Wasa Lions, cheer on the Kootenay Ice, and enjoy spending time with her grandchildren.
Cliff Youngs, Trustee Cliff and his family bought Wasa property in 1979, and with his wife, Avy, and two sons, commuted on many holiday weekends from their Calgary home. During his successful teaching career, Cliff held executive positions on the Alberta Teachers’ Association. In June 2013, Cliff and Avy sold their Calgary home and became full time BC residents, swayed by the endless opportunities for hiking, biking, and enjoying more time at the lake.
Cliff believes that the WLLID board, comprised of local trustees with the greatest vested interest in the lake, is in the best position to protect the health and safety of Wasa.
“Positive steps have been taken recently with the development of the website, establishment of an email address, and preparation of a regular newsletter. More steps need to be taken in order to engage the community and ensure that the decisions made are in the best interests of the membership.”
Nowell Berg, Trustee The Berg family has owned property at Wasa Lake since 1950 and Nowell has been a full time resident for more than 3 years. He is following in his fathers footsteps by filling a trustee position for the Land Improvement District.
Area residents have no doubt seen his story byline and photos in the Tri-Village Buzz over the past years, where he provides news stories and interviews of local celebrities. Nowell has provided many of the photos on our website and in the newsletter.
