2017 GLC Semiannual Meeting and Great Lakes Day

Great Lakes Day  

Great Lakes Day is an annual event hosted by the Great Lakes Commission and the Northeast-Midwest Institute that brings together regional organizations with federal policy-makers to discuss progress on and needs for Great Lakes restoration and protection.

Each year, the Great Lakes Commission, the Northeast-Midwest Institute, the Council of Great Lakes Governors, the Healing Our Waters® - Great Lakes Coalition, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, the Mayors of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, Tribal agencies, the Great Lakes Metro Chambers Coalition, and others, bring approximately 150 people from the region to Washington. Together, these groups convey a unified message to Congress expressing the Great Lakes region's priorities for legislation and appropriations to protect our environment and support our economy.

Highlights of Great Lakes Day include a Congressional Breakfast Reception on Capitol Hill and visits with Congressional offices. This year's Great Lakes Day takes place Thursday, March 16, 2017.
