Great Lakes Section


The Great Lakes Section of the ASGS covers portions of Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada (see map). Bordering and overlapping sections are the Midwest Section to the West, the Canadian Section to the North and East, and the Ohio Valley Section to the South.


The Great Lakes Section meets in the Spring each year. We normally meet at a location bounded by a loop through the cities of Kalamazoo, Michigan; Midland, Michigan; London, Ontario; Windsor, Ontario; Detroit, Michigan; and Toledo, Ohio. Occasionally we may have a joint meeting with a bordering section or sections.


The Great Lakes Section is one of eleven sections of the American Scientific Glassblowers Society (ASGS). For more information< on activities and local membership, contact one of the officers below. For national membership, please see the information on the Membership webpage.
