To collaborate with the community to provide an environment that encourages a sense of belonging through communication, activities and programming.
The Arbour Lake Community Association, like other community associations in Calgary, is a non-profit organization with a volunteer group of residents committed to representing the people of the community. Membership in the community association is voluntary! The Board of Directors is voted in by the membership and consists of a President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and Portfolio Directors at Large. Anyone with a valid community membership may run for any position on the board. It is the ALCA’s responsibility to represent the wishes of the community in reference to all civic issues, including but not limited to: Transportation and Traffic, Law Enforcement, Bylaw Planning, Building and Zoning, Civic Pride and Improvement, Funding Requests. The ALCA also organizes and contributes to sports programs, social functions, and arranges for the production and distribution of the community newsletter. Community membership fees and fundraising help cover the costs of insurance and other association expenses, including funding for a variety of programs and events that are run at minimal or no cost to community members. A thriving Community Association, with the involvement of community members, helps create a close-knit community, strong social involvement and community pride.
