8th Annual Summit
January 22 - 25, 2024
Westin La Paloma, Tucson, AZ

Theme: Heading West: Pioneering New Opportunities

Fellow Lake Managers & Business Owners,

The Board of Directors at SLMP is excited to continue with enhancements to the format for the upcoming summit.  Based on feedback from our attendees, you have indicated that sharing information is extremely valuable to you and your organization.

You spoke, we listened!  We have added breakout sessions for your staff to run concurrently with some of the Business Owner discussions.  We’ll still have several technical presentations, But, rather than just the usual PowerPoint presentations for two and a half days, we will be having multiple interactive round-table Socratic discussions on a variety of topics that you told us are meaningful to you.

What are we talking about?!  YOU will be part of the program every step of the way.  Less lecture, more participation!  More collaboration and problem solving on issues affecting YOU!

See you out west!!

Your SLMP Board of Directors


SLMP has made it more cost effective for you to bring more of your staff to the summit.

Registration for individuals is $395 and each additional person from your company is just $349!

Need to add more people after you’ve made your initial registration,  just email Maryann.

You will renew your organization’s membership for 2024 along with your summit registration. Your one annual membership fee is for your entire organization so you only pay that once no matter how many staff you bring.

What’s the difference between a Vendor and an Exhibitor? A Vendor is a membership category.  An Exhibitor is an organization that has a booth at the Summit.  Due to high demand for our exhibit spaces, all Exhibitors will be current Vendor members of the Society.  Your membership for 2024 will be charged at the time of your exhibit/sponsor registration.
