For many of the best minds in the Lake Management industry, the SLMP Annual Summit has quickly become one of the “can’t miss” events of the year. For two and a half days business owners, employees, vendors, and industry professionals immerse themselves in learning and camaraderie in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. For this reason, the Board of Directors has decided to go all-in on the concept of “Getting Better Together”.

This year’s Summit promises to be one filled with interaction. From small group roundtable discussions, to breakout technical sessions, large group presentations and fun Savannah nightlife, there will be something for everyone.

All members of the Lake and Pond Management industry are welcome to register for the Summit. Companies small and large, government employees, academia, vendors and manufacturers will all be represented. Please visit the Society’s website at to learn more about the Summit and register your spot before space is full.
