September 28, 2006

Presentation: Port/shipping AIS precautions 9:00am - Executive Board Room at the South Carolina Aquarium (MAP) in Charleston.
Jason Crichton has graciously arranged for us to use their Executive Board Room for our meeting and has arranged a behind the scenes tour of the aquarium after lunch. Street parking around the aquarium is limited and the meters are only good for two hours, so we encourage everyone to park in the parking garage across the street from the aquarium. When you enter the aquarium admissions area tell them that you are there for the Aquatic Invasive Species meeting. They will give you a pass and direct you to the third floor board room.

Activities: Review input from homework; finalize background information

Homework: Review draft management goals and objectives from other states
