We will kick things off on the evening of Monday July 24th with the President’s Reception at Punch Bowl Social, one of Indy’s premier meeting spots. This location has bowling, arcades, and a host of different table games. All that attend are sure to have a great time dining, playing, and catchup up with friends.

Tuesday (July 25th) and Wednesday (July 26th) will feature a full day of presentations from the cutting edge of aquatic plant and algae management research.  Don’t miss our opening session highlighting the intersection of communication and conflict. We will have several invited speakers that will share their experiences around messaging the complexity of aquatic plant management. There will also be several special luncheon opportunities on these days.

Don’t forget to join us Wednesday night for the APMS Awards Banquet. Guests will enjoy a delicious plated dinner while recognizing the great contributions of our APMS members.

Be sure to hang around on Thursday (July 27th), as we bring the conference to a close.
