The 7th biennial State of Lake Michigan (SOLM) and the 11th annual Great Lakes Beach Association Conference was held in Michigan City, Indiana, Sept. 26-28. The conference brought together elected officials, scientists, resource managers, planners, students, and citizens working to improve Great Lakes beaches and Lake Michigan, as outlined in the Lakewide Management Plan. Activities and events included field trips, workshops, and a reception with speakers from local, state, and federal government and John Goss, President Obama’s Carp Czar.
We thank those that attended this event and to everyone involved in the planning. It truly was a group effort and the results were worth the effort!
Thank you for your interest in the 2011 SOLM/GLBA Conference.
The SOLM/GLBA Planning team sought authorization to post presentations from all presenters. We received a limited response. As such, a number of presentations from the Conference are not available for posting online. If you have a question regarding a certain topic, we recommend that you contact the presenter directly – please reference the contact information contained on the Attendee List.
