Annual Meetings

The GLLC Annual Meeting makes it possible for GLLC members to network with their peers from across the region and learn about the latest developments in Great Lakes-St. Lawrence policy. The GLLC meets annually, with meetings rotating around the eight states and two provinces that share the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.

We rely on event sponsorships to make it possible to host annual meetings of the GLLC. If you are interested in becoming an event sponsor for an upcoming meeting, please contact us at jlienhardt@csg.org.
