Our Next ICOLA Meeting on
Wednesday, April 15th
HAS BEEN POSTPONED INDEFINATELY
DUE TO PANDEMIC
The 2020 Itasca Area AIS Summit
HAS BEEN MOVED TO AN ON-LINE EVENT
MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW
The Summit will be held 10:30am-1pm Wednesday April 15 at Timberlake Lodge in Grand Rapids. ICOLA is serving as a sponsor. This year the Summit invites Resorts, Camps, Campgrounds, and Lake Service Providers. A lake service provider is the business you hire to install/remove your dock/lift seasonally. While the Itasca AIS Program will be marketing this event directly to resorts and LSPs, ICOLA is asking lake associations to help with "relationship marketing".
Please ask your members and property owners to call or send a note to their own lake service provider and ask them to attend the Summit. Just forward copy of Summit Flyer
Please consider with your Board which LSPs are popular on your lake, then ask those LSPs to attend. Just forward a copy of the Summit Flyer and ask them to attend.
Please consider with your Board which Board Members may have relationships with the resorts, camps, campgrounds on your lake. Call or email those resorts, camps, and campgrounds and ask them to attend. Forward a copy of the Flyer.
Thank you for your help!!
