About Us
Since our founding in 1954, the Eagle Lake Property Owners Improvement Association (our original name) has been working to protect Eagle Lake and enhance the experience for those who enjoy it.  Each year, our members support the mission through their generous financial donations and countless hours of volunteerism.  All residents within one mile of Eagle Lake are eligible to become members, and because lake property ownership is not a requirement, our name was changed to Eagle Lake Improvement Association in 2017.
Water quality has always been the primary focus of the organization.  This requires an effective partnership with the township, the DNR, the lake management district, and a dedicated group of ELIA volunteers.  We also depend on the involvement and cooperation of the community to become good stewards of the lake, particularly in the areas of shoreline best practices and safe boating.  Through a variety of initiatives, ELIA provides education and information to the community about issues affecting Eagle Lake and the surrounding area.  It strives to create a strong cooperative spirit among its membership with programs such as Clean Boats Clean Waters, and promote a true sense of community through sponsorship of events such as the annual fireworks display and the Eagle Lake Regatta.
The Eagle Lake Improvement Association is supported by more than 200 residents, and our board of directors is comprised of dedicated individuals from each of our Eagle Lake neighborhoods.  Our efforts are driven entirely through an active and energized membership, willing to volunteer and support us financially.  To that end, and through the expansion of our communication efforts --including this website-- we strive to increase membership from year to year.
