Dear Lakesiders,

Thank you for your deep commitment to this place we all love. At 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 13, Lakeside will host a Community Forum in Wesley Lodge.

Throughout last summer, Lakeside hosted 13 Neighborhood Gatherings, seven Porch Talks and sent monthly Presidential & Board e-communications. After the summer ended, Lakeside scheduled four community forums to continue to keep Lakesiders informed.

  •      May 13: 9 a.m. in Wesley Lodge
  •      July 1: 9 a.m. in Wesley Lodge
  •      Aug. 5: 9 a.m. in Orchestra Hall
  •      Oct. 14: 9 a.m. in Orchestra Hall

The community forum will be led by interim CEO, Charles Allen, and Board Chair, Jane Anderson, along with a panel of Board members and staff leadership. The talented Lakeside staff will highlight the enriching 150th Chautauqua season, new guest experience and arrival initiatives, and plans for outreach to the region.

Following that, the Board will address questions received from community members in advance of the meeting, including questions about the resignation of our former CEO, Lakeside’s mission and vision, and governance of the Lakeside Association.

Wesley Lodge will open at 8:30 a.m. Due to setup needs in Wesley Lodge, please RSVP so staff can plan accordingly. Questions can be submitted in the electronic RSVP form. 


With gratitude,


The Lakeside Association Board of Directors
