Managing for Results

Pine Glades Lake - AlainThe theme of NALMS’ 2014 International Symposium features both watershed and in-lake management and research efforts that can provide more near-term meaningful results. With seemingly endless water features and equally abundant water resource management challenges, Florida is uniquely positioned to host a discussion of these issues and to share national and international approaches and solutions.

NALMS and the Florida Lake Management Society invite you to join us for NALMS 2014 at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina in Tampa, Florida. NALMS 2014 offers an opportunity to explore old Florida habitats, springs, rivers and beaches. Florida is a world-class destination where visitors can enjoy the attractions as well as the arts, history and Hispanic culture of west central Florida and its sub-tropical splendor. Tampa provides an opportunity to bring together lake managers, regulators, educators, researchers, students and corporate partners from around the continent and the world to share the results of research and management, to exchange ideas and information, and to learn about advancements in technology, management, and knowledge.

NALMS founded the Eberhardt Memorial Student Fund to honor the lives of Tom and Elinor Eberhardt. Tom and Elinor were proud supporters of NALMS, dedicated and dependable corporate members and good friends to all of us in the NALMS family.

The Eberhardt Memorial Student Fund supports travel grants for students to present the results of graduate-level research at NALMS’ International Symposium. Student presenters may use these grants to help cover the costs of Symposium registration fees, travel, and/or overnight accommodations.

We've included an option to donate to the Eberhardt Fund as part of the registration process. You may also donate to the Fund at the conference or by participating in our silent auction, all of the proceeds from which are added to the Eberhardt Fund.
