Annual Meetings

The GLLC Annual Meeting makes it possible for GLLC members to network with their peers from across the region and learn about the latest developments in Great Lakes-St. Lawrence policy. The GLLC meets annually, with meetings rotating around the eight states and two provinces that share the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.

We rely on event sponsorships to make it possible to host annual meetings of the GLLC. If you are interested in becoming an event sponsor for an upcoming meeting, please contact us at

2022 GLLC Annual Meeting

The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Legislative Caucus met in September in Chicago. Over the course of two days, legislators from across the basin explored a wide range of topics related to protecting the Great Lakes and the region’s other water resources — for example, combating invasive species, reducing nutrient and plastic pollution, cleaning up Areas of Concern, and addressing the problem of PFAS contamination. The meeting also featured a session on the impact of climate change in the Great Lakes region.
