Call for Special Sessions for 2018 Conference
The 83rd North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference will be held at the Hilton Norfolk in Norfolk, Virginia, on March 25-30, 2018. The Conference Steering Committee is seeking ideas and participation from professional conservation interests to help develop the conference agenda. In particular, recommendations for topics, potential co-chairs and presenters for four Special Sessions are invited. Ideas for prospective plenary keynote speakers are also welcome.
Special Session topics address timely policy and program issues and opportunities related to the practical and philosophical professional management of natural resources. The Steering Committee gives foremost consideration to recommendations that are fully framed for the two-hour time period each Special Session is allotted following the Opening (plenary) Session on Wednesday morning, March 28. Proposals should identify and describe the need for and scope of the session, include suggestions for potential co-chairs, and present a draft agenda of prospective speakers and topics. Proposals should not exceed two pages. All ideas will be given careful consideration.
Recommendations and suggestions should be emailed to Matt Dunfee by May 19th.
