LMRA launches new website

Published 10:44am Friday, January 13, 2012

The Lake Martin Resource Association launched a new website this week.

Charles Borden, president of LMRA, said the redesign, which went live on Wednesday, will make the website a “much more valuable resource for members and visitors alike.”

“We’ve added greatly to the site’s content and we expect that it will be a primary destination for those seeking information about the lake,” Borden said.

For members, LMRA said the site provides current and past newsletters, reports on various LMRA projects and a secure means of paying membership dues online through PayPal.

“Equally valuable to members and visitors will be having one source for lake levels, lake weather and a map showing the location of buoys on the lake,” Borden said. “The site provides information about the history of the lake and the variety of recreational activities available in the area as well as links to calendars and guides relating to the Lake Martin area.”

The new site also provides links to the sites of various agencies and organizations that are involved with Lake Martin.

“We believe that anything that’s going on in the lake, that you’ll be able to go on our website and find it. But simultaneously, they’ll find out about LMRA. And that’s what LMRA is — we’re all about Lake Martin, so this is just natural.”

Borden said LMRA has contracted with Jeff LaMonica, who created Russell Lands’ website, to create the redesign, and LMRA plans to keep the site fresh by adding new information and photographs regularly.

“We believe the site will help demonstrate the economic importance of the lake to the entire region and will encourage membership in Lake Martin Resource Association as we carry out our mission of promoting, preserving and protecting Lake Martin and the adjacent areas,” he said.

Members of LMRA said they are excited about the project, and they believe their members and prospective members will be, too.

“Members and non-members are encouraged to visit the site regularly to stay in touch with all that’s happening on Lake Martin,” public relations chairman Will Denton said. “We believe that what you learn will cause you to be a part of this vibrant and active organization that has been working for the betterment of Lake Martin since 1970. “
