Registration for the 2015 conference NOW open!!
The annual regional conference, held in a different New England state each year, is NEC-NALMS' main activity each year, and how we engage our members and provide information and an exchange of ideas. Please consider sharing your ideas by presenting a workshop, presentation or poster at this year's conference.
The 2015 New England Waters Conference will be hosted by the Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds, and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation's Lakes and Ponds Program. We'll gather on May 29 and 30, 2015, at the Main Street landing Performing Arts Center on the banks of beautiful Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont for "Celebrating the Natural and Cultural Values of our Lakes." Please join us to meet, learn and explore our New England lakes! Click here for more information and to register!

PDF version of the 2015 brochure is now available below - and please share the flier with your local lakes community!
Interactive, hands on workshops offered on Friday, followed by the NEC-NALMS annual meeting, and an optional dinner. Saturday features technical sessions focused on a variety of topics of interest to volunteer monitors, lakeshore residents and lake management professionals.
Each year we strive to provide an outstanding opportunity to share information about volunteer monitoring across local, state and even national borders, understanding our lakes today by looking at their pasts, and getting a handle on the changes we can expect. Please come ready to share your experiences and learn with and from the experts!
