Grassroots Symposium a Success!

Grassroots Symposium a Success!

On October 14th and 15th almost 70 people from around the Great Lakes Basin gathered in Lakeside, Ohio for our Second Annual Grassroots Symposium. Here’s some of what folks had to say:

“I learned so much, and was reenergized.” “I think the GR Advocate Award was a great idea and this year’s winners truly deserved the recognition you gave them!” “[the symposium was] a great networking opportunity. As always, it’s inspiring to hear people’s stories.” “I came away with so much valuable information that I know will be applied in my work.” “I saw a lot of smiling faces-sure evidence of a successful conference.” “Thank you for the outstanding conference! It was one of the best events I’ve been to in years!”

We are excited to introduce to you in this issue our Grassroots Citizen-Advocate Award Recipients. Our GLAHnews in December of this year will highlight more of the Symposium including workshops, materials and issues covered. If you were unable to attend this year, don’t be discouraged. We are already working on next fall’s Grassroots Symposium – to be held on Lake Superior…

Next year’s theme: Stormwater
