  1. The live screening of the Great Lakes Conference is great! I wanted to attend the conference, but couldn’t because of other commitments.

    Could you possibly allow interested citizens to subscribe to the conference via webinar and pay some money to view the conference videos on their home computers when they have time?

    This would help spread education about the Great Lakes.
