Lake Lanier Association names new executive director

By AccessWDUN Staff
After spending the last two months searching for a new executive director, the Lake Lanier Association announced Tuesday, July 16 that Hall County resident Jennifer Flowers will take the post.
"Jennifer is a local Hall County resident with the education, work experience and competence to become a great asset for our Association. She comes to us from the City of Gainesville Department of Water Resources and shares our passion for Lake Lanier and preserving our natural resources" said LLA President John Barker in a press statement.
Flowers, a University of Georgia graduate with a B.S. in Ecology, also has a masters degree in Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law School. Flowers has 10 years of experience working in the water resources field. In addition, she was accepted into the 2019 class for the Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership, according to Barker.
"I believe Lake Lanier is the most important resource for the surrounding communities and arguably all of Metro Atlanta. It is an economic driver for regional opportunities for recreation, area development and drinking water for residents and industries. Without Lake Lanier, the region and state would not be what they are today, which is why I am thrilled to be in this new role," Flowers said.
Lake Lanier Association has worked since 1966 to protect the lake. Initiatives of the organization include the annual Shore Sweep, removing abandoned and derelict boats and docks, water quality testing, boater education campaigns, solar lights for hazard markers and rip rap to control island soil erosion.
Flowers steps into a post left vacant by Joanna Cloud, who was LLA's Executive Director for almost nine years. She announced her resignation in April and left the job in mid-May.
