Lake Mont Pines is mutual benefit, non-profit corporation. Our common interest development/community is governed by California Law / CA Corporations Code, Davis-Sterling Legislation, the LMP Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R), the Bylaws and our duly adopted Rules of Conduct and Policies.

The Board of Directors meets regularly to make community decisions and manage the Lake, Lodge and Common Area facilities. Per the Bylaws, an Annual Meeting of the members is held in August or September, typically on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. At this meeting, Directors are elected to the Board.

The Bylaws call for the Board to consist of 9 Directors. Currently the Board is comprised of 6 members. A special thank you to our current Board of Directors for all their efforts on behalf of the community.  Association members are invited to attend Board meetings and become involved with the community.

Meeting Agendas are published on our website 4 days prior to the meeting. Members may also follow our progress by reviewing the approved Meeting Minutes which are also posted on this site. Members may declare themselves as a candidate at our Annual Meeting.  The current Directors may also appoint interested members to serve on the Board until the next Annual Meeting. Candidates for the Board may also be placed on the Annual Meeting ballot and voted into office by the Members at the Annual Meeting.  Members are elected to 3 year terms if there is a Quorum.

Please consider attending our meeting as it is a great experience and volunteers are needed in order to maintain our wonderful community. Members may contact the office for more details and further information.

Current Board Members

Fred Jacobus

Fred Jacobus Lake Mont Pines BOD

Fred Jacobus and his wife became residents of Lake Mont in 2015. They purchased their “cabin in the mountains” as a gathering place for their three daughters and four grandchildren who live in different areas of the country.  They raised their family camping in the Sierras and could not be happier with the great experience they have found here.

Fred's professional career has been in the food industry. He is currently the Executive Vice president of Operations for Diamond Foods LLC, a culinary and snack nut company located in Stockton.  He is also a registered professional engineer in California.

As a board member, Fred's desire is to contribute to maintaining and improving this great community.

Jerry Marcotte


Jerry and his wife Kathy have been cabin owners since 2010.  They love the mountain air and environment in Arnold.  They choose Lakemont Pines for its lakes and mountains for hiking, kayaking, golfing, swimming, and skiing.  They find Lakemont Pines an escape and outdoor paradise close to their home in Folsom.  With cooler summer temperatures and snow in the wintertime their cabin is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.

As a civil and environmental engineer, Jerry retired from Caltrans and the US and California Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA).  His career focused on protecting and cleaning up the environment contaminated from industrial and human activities.  His recent work involved designing drinking water and sewage systems for Caltrans rest areas and other facilities.  He also managed cleanup treatment systems for industrial toxic waste sites that spilled chemicals into the environment for the California EPA.

Jerry says: “My goal as a member of the Board of Directors is to help maintain the quality of mountain life in Lakemont Pines.”

Dorla Licausi


For close to 53 years, Dorla has had a family ties to the Lakemont Pines community. After spending most of her summers of her youth here at family cabins and with grandparents, she became a homeowner in 2013 so she could continue the family tradition of summers in the mountains. Dorla lives in the Bay Area and is married with four children or who have grown up with a deep love for Lake Mont Pines.  

In her professional life, Dorla has over 30 years experience in leadership and operations as a VP Store Manager/Executive Director.  Currently she is an Executive Director for a senior living community in Napa.

Laura McGeachy

I'm Laura McGeachy and have recently been voted in as an executive board member to our home owner's association.

Mike, my husband, and I have been a part of the Lakemont community for over 30 years.  Our little get-away is on Fawn Circle.  Over the years our family has enjoyed all the activities and culture that LMP and Arnold has to offer.....swimming, fishing, hiking, skiing, concerts, wine tasting and so much more.  Our two son's always enjoyed bringing friends to the cabin as kids and are still doing so as adults.

I taught high school for 27 years in the Santa Clara Unified school district and have been retired for 2 years now.  I was on the executive board, for the teacher's union-UTSC, for twelve years.  Our district is a K-12 grade educational system with several outreach programs for children through adults.  With such a large community to serve our union responsibilities are plentiful.   Collaborative team work, contract negotiations, staff representation with administration, state and local elections and creating oversight committees are a few of the larger duties that I was a part of.

We were San Jose residents for 36 years and moved to the Carmichael (Sacramento) area last July.  I am now a bit closer to the Arnold area, only a 90 minute commute.  I've recently joined the Locke Winery crew in Murphy's and come into town at least one weekend a month to work/pour wine 🙂

I'm honored and excited to be an active member within LMPHOA and community.
