LBC presents class projects at June 9 coffee

By Hal Bish

Members of Leadership Big Canoe’s (LBC) 2018 class received a special honor when they were asked to present their class projects to the June 9 POA Community Coffee. Each LBC class studies a specific issue or potential problem concerning Big Canoe with the objective of coming up with suggestions and recommendations the POA board can review and potentially implement.

The 2018 LBC class projects and presenters were:
• Traffic and Safety in Big Canoe presented by Grant Grimes
• Big Canoe Participation in Community Affairs presented by Bill Nelson
• Short Term Rental Impact on Big Canoe presented by Bob White
• Firewise Wildfire Preparedness in Big Canoe presented by Hal Bish.

After the presentations the speakers participated in a Q&A session to give residents more detailed answers to specific question about their projects and how those projects will improve living in Big Canoe. Past projects have been published on the

Leadership Big Canoe web site but this is the first time the projects have been presented in a public forum.

The presentations delivered at the community coffee highlight the work done by the LBC 2018 graduates and shows the value these volunteers and Leadership Big Canoe bring to the community. The bar for 2019 has been set and no doubt will be exceeded.

Leadership Big Canoe is currently accepting application for the 2019 class and will be holding a Wine and Cheese reception on July 11 from 4 – 6 p.m. in the Mountain Grill Room at the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti. Individuals interested in volunteering in Big Canoe or who have questions about participating in Leadership Big Canoe are invited.
