Lake Chapala Society 2.0
...EXTENDING OUR LEGACY as an oasis for personal enrichment, socialization and collaboration throughout Lakeside!
In March, 2019, the Board approved a Long-Range Plan for the Lake Chapala Society to extend the legacy as an oasis for personal enrichment, socialization and collaboration throughout the greater community. Download / view a copy of the plan [a href="../website/PDF/GovDocs/LCS_2_0_PlanBrochure.pdf" target="_self" title=""]HERE[/a]
The plan is focused on improving, modernizing, reinventing and transforming LCS by creating a continuous quality improvement culture, and expanding the use of information technology with greater collaboration between and among the Mexican and foreign communities. We will take our best practices from LCS 1.0, with its rich history, culture and traditions of programs, services and activities over the past 60+ years and transcend the organization into Lake Chapala Society 2.0.
The Lake Chapala Society is making changes to our programming and services to help our community stay safe.
Effective March 17, The Lake Chapala Society will suspend all scheduled programs at the main campus and the Wilkes Center until the risks from the Corona virus pandemic have been mitigated. Watch this web site for further updates.
