GLIN==> MAKE PLANS NOW - Annual Meeting of the Great Lakes Commission, Oct. 6-7 in Quebec City

Title: 2008 Annual Meeting of the Great Lakes Commission



Québec City, celebrating its 400th anniversary this year, is the site of the Great Lakes Commission?s 2008 Annual Meeting. The meeting will be held Oct. 6-7 at the Hôtel Château Laurier Québec located in the heart of the city, close to Old Québec and the Québec Parliament.

IMPORTANT DEADLINE: Because of Québec City?s 400th anniversary, hotel space is very limited! Make your reservations soon. Also, this would be a good time for Americans to renew your passport!

Under the theme The Technology of Stewardship, presentations will address the role of innovative technology in sustaining and rebuilding our region?s economy and protecting our environment. Several exciting sessions are under development: climate change and Great Lakes/St. Lawrence observation systems, vessel automatic identification systems, ?blue technologies? and innovations in freshwater efficiency, recent investments in wind energy, and the status of the Basin Compact/Agreement. Also featured will be a keynote on the 400-year-old Québec-Great Lakes connection and a dinner cruise on the St. Lawrence River.
