Become a Member

At the heart of all non-profit organizations are the members and volunteers who make the mission of the organization possible. The Squam Lakes Conservation Society (SLCS) has been fortunate in having dedicated members who provide financial support, make up the Board of Directors, serve on committees, and assist with a variety of programs.

How does one become a member of SLCS?  Our By-Laws state: “Members of the Corporation shall consist of all individuals and groups who subscribe to its purposes and have contributed financially to the Corporation within the past two years.”  Thus, to be an active Member, you simply need to make a financial contribution, whether it’s for Operations, Projects, or Dedicated Funds. Your financial support allows us to work towards our mission. Please join us!
