CLA Board Adds New Director

MuellerThe Chautauqua Lake Association has announced the appointment of Dr. Rudolph Mueller to its board of directors beginning this month. In this role, Dr. Mueller will be actively involved with the CLA’s primary purpose to protect, restore, and preserve the beauty and cleanliness of Chautauqua Lake.

Dr. Mueller grew up in Lakewood, Ohio. He received his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western University, his medical degree from Ohio State University, and he did post graduate training at Northwestern University Hospitals specializing in internal medicine. His love for Chautauqua Lake brought him to the county and to the CLA.

“I moved our family here in 1992 because of the excellent hospital and also the beautiful Chautauqua Lake,” said Dr. Mueller. “We knew this would be a great place to live and raise our young family and it has been so to this day. We’re thankful to live here and look forward to making Chautauqua Lake remain healthy and a treasure for this community for many decades to come,” he said. The CLA board of directors is an all-volunteer board. Each member helps the organization in all phases of operation and lake maintenance.

“We appreciate all of our board members and volunteers. We couldn’t do what we do without them,” said Doug Conroe, president of the CLA. “We’re excited to have Dr. Mueller join the board. He will be very helpful in our mission to keep the lake clean,” said Conroe. Dr. Mueller’s background will be very helpful as the CLA addresses several health and safety issues each year, most notably the nuisance aquatic vegetation and the presence of blue green algae in the lake.
