GLIN==> Lake Michigan Monitoring Coordination Council meeting 9/22/99



		LAKE MICHIGAN MONITORING COORDINATION COUNCIL MEETING
		Wednesday, September 22
		10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
		Hilton Hotel, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

		DEADLINE TO REGISTER SEPTEMBER 17.

This is a final reminder to register for the Lake Michigan Monitoring
Coordination Council if you have not already done so.  In conjunction with
the International Joint Commission's 1999 Biennial Forum, the Lake Michigan
Monitoring Coordination Council will be holding
it's first official meeting on Wednesday, September 22.  The Council
responds to the need for enhanced coordination, communication and data
management among the many agencies and organizations that conduct or benefit
from environmental monitoring efforts in the Lake Michigan basin.  The
Council will provide a forum for identifying gaps and establishing
monitoring priorities; exchanging information; and forming partnerships.  In
so doing, the Council will result in cost-saving efficiencies for all
involved.

The Lake Michigan Monitoring Coordination Council is being developed and
staffed by the Great Lakes Commission with financial support from the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency's Lake Michigan Team.  The Great Lakes
Commission, a membership organization of the Great Lakes states, promotes
sound public policy on issues of regional environmental protection and
resource management through information sharing, policy research and
development and regional advocacy.

At this first meeting, the Council is soliciting participation from the
broad community who have a stake in monitoring the ecological health of the
Lake Michigan basin.  The objectives of the Sept. 22 meeting are to formally
establish the Council, adopt the Council charter, form workgroups, identify
Council priorities, and begin coordination activities.

and draft charter or any other information, please contact Ric Lawson
