Meetings

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

One of our last Roundtable Gatherings was held in Duluth MN. We held our third Recreation and Tourism Summit at the Paulucci Building down in Canal Park. In the evening we enjoyed presentations from the Mayor of Duluth Emily Larson.We were also treated to stories of the growing clubs and organizations and the determination of the rock climbing communities of both Duluth and Thunder Bay areas. 

Our latest Roundtable Gathering was hosted in part by Voyageur Wilderness Programme on Voyageur Island near Atikokan/Quetico -Sept. 11-13 2018 –  

We are working on hosting a 2019 science symposium. Our last one in 2016 was a great success. Find more information on the 2016 Science Symposium and the Tourism & Recreation Summit. HOCP’s general meetings usually include an evening lecture/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/stakeholders.
