The Events Committee is currently planning for the 14th annual Vermont Lakes Seminar in 2018 and is considering trying something new!

A common theme in the feedback received from attendees at the annual Lakes Seminar is that because so many topics are covered in a short time many express that they leave the seminar wanting more information.

We are proposing an idea of holding a 2-day Lakes Seminar event, if there is interest. In this format, the first day would have a similar schedule to years past, including a day of informational talks and workshop offerings. Additionally, we propose to hold an optional, second day where we explore and discuss selected topics from the seminar at greater length.

The Events Committee has decided that the 2018 Annual Lakes Seminar will be held on Friday June 1st, 2018 and the potential second day could be held on Saturday June 2nd. The location is yet to be determined, but will likely be in Central Vermont.

Please provide your prompt feedback about your interest in participating in a 2-day lakes seminar so that the Events Committee may plan accordingly. 

Thank you.
