On October 19-22, GOTO INC attended the 2016 Great Lakes Planetarium Association (GLPA) conference. More than 160 planetarians attended, and there was a very full agenda of educational papers, demonstrations, workshops, and vendor presentations. In addition to the usual GOTO fulldome presentation of products and a table with more GOTO information, GOTO USA Liaison Ken Miller presented well-attended educational workshop on how to prepare for the 2017 eclipse.
Great meals, informative speakers, and a beautiful venue in the Flint Michigan cultural complex of museums and galleries all came together to create a wonderful conference. And of course the chance to talk with old and new friends in casual settings was also appreciated. All GLPA members look forward to their next meeting, which will be the "Pleiades Conference" of all 7 U.S.A. regional associations in St. Louis, Missouri, October 10-14, 2017!
