SOLitude Lake Management, an industry leader in lake and pond management, fisheries management and related environmental services for the Eastern United States, is proud to be a founding member of the Society of Lake Management Professionals (SLMP), a society specifically for lake, pond and fisheries management professionals, organized and run by aquatic management professionals. The society was conceived and started as a collaborative effort of some of the best lake, pond, and fisheries management companies throughout the country. Kevin Tucker, President of SOLitude Lake Management, and David Beasley, Lead Fisheries Biologist of SOLitude Lake Management worked with their peers throughout the country to help make this concept a reality.
The SLMP's mission is to foster an appreciation for and enhance the management of ponds and lakes, managed by for profit companies, with particular concern for the aesthetic and recreational uses and stewardship of such waters. Using tools such as innovation, education, representation, accreditation, and standardization of best management practices, the organization advocates wise stewardship of privately owned water, promotes and recruits fishing opportunities in private water environments, and protects our environment.
The society offers three types of membership: Accredited for professional lake and pond management companies, Associate for any person or entity interested in sustaining the industry and protecting our water resources, and Vendor for any company that provides products or support services to the lake management industry.
“Our goal in creating the SLMP is to elevate the profile of the lake and pond management industry as well as the scientist and professionals that are dedicated to environmental stewardship as well as excellent customer service,” explained Kevin Tucker, founding Accredited Member and President of SOLitude Lake Management. David Beasley added “this provides us with a unique opportunity to help set the standard for our industry and raise the bar for all involved, which is a win for our clients, our industry, and the precious resources we manage."
