Our annual conference provides valuable networking opportunities, forums to discuss current work and new ideas with colleagues, a chance to build technical knowledge, and space to be re-inspired by the passion for conservation across the state.

The annual business meeting is held on the last morning of the conference. This meeting includes updates from our Board of Directors and a forum for discussion.

Other events occurring at the conference include the following:


Join the Professional Improvement Committee (PIC)!

The PIC's main responsibility is to assist in the planning and execution of our annual conference. Visit the PIC's webpage and learn more about why it's important the committee has representation from staff and supervisors around the state.
