Message from the Outgoing President

Greeting members and friends of the Massachusetts Coalition of Lakes and Ponds!
Just a week ago, we were at the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife hearing wonderful presentations and networking with various lake management and environmental organizations. Thank you to everyone who helped pull off our event! And a special thanks to the MA Division of Fisheries and Wildlife for graciously hosting our event.
If you attended our conference last week, you would have learned that I will be stepping down as President and moving into the role of Vice President so that I can start Graduate School in the Fall. I’ve truly enjoyed my experience acting as President of MA COLAP, and am thankful for all of your support over this past year! While I am sad that I must step down, I know that MA COLAP will be left in great hands. Melissa Lenker will be stepping in to fill the role of President, and I know that she will do an amazing job. She has played an integral role in helping to maintain the presence and relevance of MA COLAP. I am excited to see what MA COLAP has in store with Melissa at the helm!
