On May 16-17, 2001, the Great Lakes Commission will host the symposium 
"Looking Forward, Looking Back: Assessing Aquatic Nuisance Species 
Prevention and Control." The symposium will be held at the Holiday Inn - 
North Campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This workshop, sponsored in cooperation with the Great Lakes Panel on 
Aquatic Nuisance Species, will examine the progress realized under the 
National Invasive Species Act (NISA) of 1996, with a special focus on 
ballast management/no ballast on board issues.

The workshop agenda includes a combination of keynote speakers, panel 
presentations and break-out sessions. Symposium results will include 
findings and recommendations that can guide the NISA reauthorization 
process. Background materials will be available online in mid-April. The 
symposium is funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Meeting registration begins at noon on May 16, 2001. The registration 
fee of $75.00 ($105.00 CA) provides attendees with all meeting materials 
and access to events, including breaks, an evening reception and lunch 
the second day.

Please submit the registration form to the Great Lakes Commission by fax 
(734 665-9135) or mail (400 Fourth St., Ann Arbor, MI 48103) by April 
23, 2001.

Commission name for the nights of May 15-17 for a special rate of $79.00

The symposium follows the 2001 Semiannual Meeting of the Great Lakes
