Program & Schedule

We have grouped sessions into subject modules, which we will present in Zoom (with automated closed captioning). For more information, see Program & Schedule.

Joint Meeting

We are pleased to be holding a joint annual meeting with the Society for Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC), whose members can read through our Guide to SPNHC Sessions.

Virtual Meeting

With the most positive vaccine projections having the majority of US residents vaccinated by early summer, our in-person meeting in early May would have still been unsafe, so we opted for a virtual meeting in 2021 and moved our commitment with the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville from 2021 to the 51st Annual Meeting in 2023.
