Asian Carp Summit Next Week

September 7th, 2011

We’d like to remind you about the Michigan Out-of-Doors University’s (MOOD U) Asian Carp Summit taking place at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Lansing on Tuesday, September 13, 2011.

MUCC and MOOD U are teaming up with the Michigan Lodging and Tourism Association, the Michigan Boating Industries Association, the Michigan Snowsports Industries Association, and the Consumers Energy Foundation to host a one-of-a-kind summit featuring presentations and information from state and federal leaders regarding one of the most publicized and controversial invasive species threatening our Great Lakes today – Asian Carp.

The cost of attendance is $75 for breakfast, lunch, and a distinguished list of presenters including Director of the Office of the Great Lakes Patty Birkholz, Assistant Attorney General Peter Manning with an update on the State of Michigan’s legal strategies, Gary O’Keefe of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Michigan Senior Capitol Correspondent and host of “Off the Record” Tim Skubick as our keynote speaker, and many others who are on the front lines of the battle to keep Asian Carp out of the Great Lakes. Following the presentations there will also be an opportunity to visit your legislators to discuss options and how they can help.
We hope you can take this opportunity to get the inside scoop on all that is being done to stop the spread of Asian Carp and also get some insight as to what remains to be accomplished.
To sign up, please click HERE and you will have the option of registering online or downloading and printing off a registration form. You can also visit the Michigan Lodging and Tourism Association website (www.milodging.org/2011LegConf) for more information and registration.
We are very excited to host this timely event with an eager team of new partners and we hope to see you in Lansing to help stop Asian Carp on September 13th.
