2019 Itasca Area Lake Service Provider Summit
11am-1pm on Wed Apr 17
Timberlake Lodge in Grand Rapids.
Our primary audience for the 2019 Summit includes representatives from area lake service providers. A lake service provider is the business that lakeshore property owners hire to install/remove their dock/lift seasonally. The purpose of the Summit is to partner with lake service provider businesses and exchange AIS best practices. There is no cost for representatives of Lake Service Provider businesses who RSVP by April 9.
