Registration for the 2016 conference NOW available!!
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 2016 New England Waters Conference will be hosted by the Massachusetts Congress of Lake and Pond Associations (COLAP). We'll gather on May 20 and 21, 2016, at the conveniently located Holiday Inn in Marlborough, MA (at the junction of Routes 495 and 20 in central Mass). "Lake Management Today: Specific Strategies for Livable Lakes" is this year's theme, with many local and regional experts sharing information on a range of highly relevant topics and tools to help you develop AND implement strategies for solving your lake issues. Please join us to meet, learn and explore our New England lakes!

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!
