ILA Outgoing President Statement

By Greg Hoffmann

When I first moved to this beautiful lake, it was sparsely developed. MacArthur Blvd was a two-lane, barely paved road. The end of the development was next to my driveway. Lakeshore Drive didn’t exist. I have lived on Lake Vilbig for over 35 years, and I have seen it grow and change. And with each passing year, it has gotten better. When I first moved here were very few plants, trees, or wildlife to be found in most parts of the lake. It has become home to hundreds of species of birds, animals, fish, and plant life. You, the ILA members, have made Lake Vilbig a sparkling gem in the middle of the 4th largest metropolitan area of the United States. You are to be commended for this accomplishment.

The ILA corporation has forged and nurtured a significant partnership with the City of Irving and has gained our city leaders and staff's respect. The ILA has many opportunities to better this community and, therefore, better the City of Irving in which it resides. Individually, you may accomplish some things, but only collectively working in cooperation with one another for the benefit of this lake, you will continue to make Lake Vilbig the best community one could wish to live in.

As the outgoing President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you, the ILA members, for the support and trust you have given me in these capacities. It has been my honor and privilege to have served this corporation and this community as your leader. I would like to especially thank the various Board members who have assisted in this corporation's leadership capacity and community.

I have offered my services, knowledge, and assistance to the incoming Board of Directors to make a smooth and efficient transition. I will continue to help serve this community and corporation in any capacity that I may be asked to and be able to.
