General Assembly of TMACOG Members

Monday, January 29, 2018, 8 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.
Holiday Inn French Quarter, Perrysburg

The new year will be a celebration of TMACOG’s 50th anniversary, and the year will begin with the January General Assembly. Please join elected officials, educators, special districts, and business representatives to get the year off to a great start. The agenda includes election of leadership and a keynote presentation. There will also be a few special anniversary features.

The keynote speaker is Dr. Christopher J. Winslow, director of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program. His presentation is “Lake Erie Algae, Nutrient Loading, and Current Research Efforts.”

Dr. Winslow has been based at the Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory since 2004. He has been an instructor and research supervisor and is now the director of both the lab and the Ohio Sea Grant College Program. Dr. Winslow will share information about more than 50 projects that are currently managed by Ohio Sea Grant and OSU’s Stone Lab with assistance from the University of Toledo. He’ll highlight the current research about nutrient sources, the role of agriculture, and how farmers use effective best management practices. He’ll identify gaps in the information and research that are guiding strategies to achieve a 40% reduction in phosphorus load in the western Lake Erie basin.
