The GPICA shall undertake civic and educational actions to serve these purposes.
All persons 18 years of age or older who subscribe, in principle, to the objective and purpose of the GPICA as stated above, and who reside or own property on Greater Pine Island, which includes Pine Island east through Matlacha (including Matlacha Isles), are eligible to join GPICA.
