Annual Meeting Update Updated 7-2-20

Dear Rattlesnake Island Association (RIA) Members - 

This is the “voting notice” as explained in our correspondence dated June 16, 2020.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, RIA does not plan to hold an in-person Annual Meeting for 2020.  We are asking our members to adopt next year’s Budget and elect 2 Board members via US Mail or electronic correspondence (preferred).

For your reference, the Profit and Loss statement for 2019/20 and the proposed budget for 2020/21 can be found here.  

We have not received any additional nominations for our open director seats.  There are two Directors whose terms expire this year, Jim Reams and Dave Dietrich.  Both Jim and Dave will run for another three year term.  

Action Requested:

Register your vote by clicking the link to the right.  If you are unable to vote online there will be a paper option sent to your address of record where you can vote and return. 

In order to proceed, we require a minimum of 2/3 of our members to vote.  Please respond promptly as this will allow the Board to act upon your guidance.  

It is the intention of the Board to propose no other items until we can have a traditional Annual Meeting in 2021.

Welcome to Rattlesnake Island

Rattlesnake Island is the 3rd largest island on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.  The resources on this website are meant for use by Rattlesnake Island Association Membership and Officers.

Association Overview

Today, the island is governed by an association of its members.

The Rattlesnake Island Association (“RIA”) was incorporated in the state of New Hampshire on May 12, 1969.

Its Articles of Incorporation were restated March 15, 1994.
All Rattlesnake Island property owners belong to the RIA. There are 186 individually owned lots on the perimeter of the island. There are two lots on the interior of the island’s northwest side that are privately owned. The remaining interior property on the northwest side is owed by the RIA. The interior property on the southeast side of the island is owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust.
In addition to its interest in the island’s interior land, the RIA also owns a number of lots on the island’s perimeter:

Copeland’s Cove
Washington View
Mountain View
Major View
Raccoon Point
Pow Wow
Young’s Cove

The land owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust is accessible through one designated waterfront lot and dock on the southeast end of the island. This island access is limited to Trust members and their accompanied guests.
In addition to the interior northwest land and the 8 waterfront island lots, the RIA owns one lot on its neighboring Sleeper Island. This lot is used to bring power to Rattlesnake Island from the mainland.
Upon request, all members of the RIA are provided with keys to the launch ramp and trailer storage area and parking passes for the upper and lower parking lots.

2020 Annual Meeting Online Voting is OPEN!

Please check back on July 1 to vote.
