What if there is more than one session at a time that I want to attend?

We’re so happy there’s so much at the event that interests you. We recommend lake associations and other lake groups send multiple representatives to Lakes Congress so that all sessions can be attended and reported back to their group.

Will presentation slides be available after the event?

Yes. Presentation slides will be posted on the Lakes Congress website after the event.

The parking lot is full – where can I park?

Parking can fill up quickly at Church Landing. We recommend arriving early to secure a parking space. If parking is unavailable, please proceed north on Route 3 (with the lake on your right) to the Mill Falls Marketplace, located on the left just before the intersection of Route 3 and Route 25). There should be plenty of parking in this lot and it’s only a short 5-minute walk to Church Landing (with a great lake view!).
