At its annual conference this year in Saratoga Springs, the North American Lake Management Society honored the Lake George Association with its “Friend of NALMS” award – an important honor for the 130-year-old LGA.
NALMS has a succinct but sweeping mission: "To forge partnerships among citizens, scientists, and professionals to foster the management and protection of lakes and reservoirs for today and tomorrow." The LGA is pleased to be one of the Society's partners.
In his nominating speech, Dr. Ken Wagner – a longtime consultant on water supply protection and former NALMS president – said, “There’s nothing like a passionate group of individuals that goes out … with a small staff … and educates, encourages and excites. A lot of people love Lake George, but nobody fans the flames of passion like this group, the Lake George Association. This is how lake associations should operate.”
