IGIA Summer Conference & Annual Membership Meeting 

Special Thanks to Our 2018 Sponsors


What to Expect

Traditionally, the IGIA Summer Conference is held at a resort location that affords an opportunity for everyone to get away from their businesses after a hectic spring season.  This serves as a chance for everyone to relax, recharge, and reconnect with one another as colleagues and friends.  During the event, we host the Annual Membership Meeting, several group activities and dinners, and time for you to explore on your own or with friends and family.  We hope that all members of the green industry will take a well-deserved break and join us for some fun in Galena!


Midwest Living rated Eagle Ridge one of the "45 Midwest Resorts We Love." Set in one of Northern Illinois' most beautiful and secluded locales, the 6,800-acre Galena Territory, the resort is a truly one-of-a-kind getaway that blends country manor-style luxury and sophistication with infinite opportunities for relaxation and recreation. Choose from 63 holes of championship golf, the indulgent 6,000-square-foot Stonedrift Spa, an indoor swimming pool, or exploring over 22 miles of hiking and biking trails. You may also paddle a kayak, canoe or paddleboat across Lake Galena, or reserve a pontoon boat. If you are an avid fisherman, the lake is teeming with both large & small mouth bass, walleye, bluegill, crappie, catfish and tiger muskie.
