Managing for Results: In-lake and Watershed Management

The theme of NALMS’ 2014 International Symposium features both watershed and in-lake management and research efforts that can provide more near-term meaningful results. With seemingly endless water features and equally abundant water resource management challenges, Florida is uniquely positioned to host a discussion of these issues and to share national and international approaches and solutions. NALMS and the Florida Lake Management Society invite you to join us for NALMS 2014 at the Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina in beautiful Tampa, Florida.

NALMS 2014 offers an opportunity to explore old Florida habitats, springs, rivers and beaches. Florida is a world-class destination where visitors can enjoy the attractions as well as the arts, history and Hispanic culture of west central Florida and its sub-tropical splendor. Tampa provides an opportunity to bring together lake managers, regulators, educators, researchers, students and corporate partners from around the continent and the world to share the results of research and management, to exchange ideas and information, and to learn about advancements in technology, management, and knowledge.

Tampa is served by a modern major airport with daily direct flights from cities in the United States and Canada. The Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina is a world-class hotel that overlooks Tampa Bay in the heart of Downtown Tampa. Nearby Ybor City, the Florida Aquarium, the Tampa Bay History Center and other attractions are within a short walk or can be reached by trolley making Tampa a perfect destination for work and play.
