On November 14-17, 2022, the North American Lake Management Society is coming together with our regional partners to host the 42nd International Symposium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We hope you will join us in this special locale!

NALMS’ Symposium attracts an international collection of 500–600 lake management professionals, academia, and citizen attendees. The Symposium promotes the exchange of lake and reservoir management science, produces material for NALMS’ high-quality publications, provides a rare opportunity for networking, as well as an opportunity to recognize excellence in the field of lake and reservoir management.

Thank you to our sponsors!
