Meetings

Everyone is welcome to attend HOCP’s meetings. At one time called quarterly meetings, but we are nowcalling them Roundtable Meetings and are held in different communities throughout the Heart of the Continent 2-3times a year. Scroll down for MINUTES.

Our last Roundtable Meeting was held at Lakehead Region Conservation Authority in Thunder Bay. We held our second Recreation and Tourism Summit there and were treated with a field trip by LRCA and a book launch by Aric Fishman, local climber of Outdoor Thrills and Skills.

Details for our next meeting will be posted on this site soon. . Find more information on the Science Symposium and the Tourism & Recreation Summit. HOCP’s general meetings usually include an evening lecture and discussion, along with a general meeting, with open discussion, updates from organizations, and breakouts on ongoing HOCP projects.

The diversity of participating organizations from both sides of the border make these meetings an increasingly vital place to share ideas, hear perspectives, and build relationships among leaders.
