About the Great Lakes Beach Association
Administrative Organization of the GLBA (draft July 17, 2013)

The Great Lakes Beach Association (GLBA) is presently made up of individuals from across the US and Canada, as well as from several other countries. Local, county, provincial and state public health, regulatory agencies, coordinating agencies, researchers and environmental groups are among the groups involved. The GLBA began in 2001 in response to the need for a forum to discuss beach issues and share ideas for achieving cleaner beaches. The GLBA is an informal organization. There are no membership dues.
