As our primary sponsor, we offer a friendly reminder regarding the upcoming Illinois Lakes Management Association (ILMA) annual conference in Crystal Lake, IL. The conference will be held at the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn. More details regarding the conference can be obtained directly from ILMA’s website. The ILMA conference committee has made extra effort to incorporate subject material that is relevant to the region and its membership.
Specific to the area are our Keynote speakers. Our first speaker will be presenting specifically in regards to the Prairie Crossing subdivision and the culture and policies behind a conservation community that are much different in design and concept than traditional subdivision design of then and today. The second keynote speaker is Joe Keller of the Fox Waterway Agency (FWA). Joe will be speaking on the some of the issues and concerns of the agency and where they are headed today despite the challenges of the IL State budget.
Concurrent sessions will be ongoing with expert speakers from throughout the area and state. The Lake County Health Department – Lakes Management Unit will be hosting an excellent workshop regarding the development of lake management plans. Sure to be heavily attended so register early.
Stay tuned for future updates or follow along on the website linked above.
