The Indiana Lakes Management Society annual conference offers a chance for our professional, lakes management, non-profit, and agency members to mix and mingle. Annually, more than 180 individuals travel through the state to learn the latest about lakes management, hear updates about on-going projects, and meet and greet friends from conferences past. The 2013 conference will occur on Friday and Saturday, March 22 and 23 at the Potawatomi Inn at the Pokagon State Park in Angola, IN.
