This helps keep a peace of mind so lake associations can collect data without worrying about insurance costs.
Influencing, Lobbying and Advocacy
With the support of its members, the NBALA represents and speaks publicly on behalf of lake associations and their property owners that respects good public policy and other matters of shared concern and interest
