Collaborate, learn, and network with your colleagues both in person and online. Attend our annual meeting, the largest conference in North America for conservation professionals.


We have developed an Attendee Know Before You Go checklist to make sure your meeting experience is as seamless and enjoyable as possible.

It includes things like:

  • Checking on what you have registered for
  • Purchasing tickets
  • Downloading apps
  • Posting in the meeting community
  • Getting the most out of networking opportunities
  • Attending free events
This year, we have a new Advice for First-Time Attendees page!


We have some helpful Speaker Logistics and Hints to help make your presentation go smoothly (page to publish shortly).

Things like:

  • How to download a presentation template
  • Where to find the Speaker Ready Room
  • How to load your presentation
  • When to check-in with your program chair
  • Where to access the internet
Poster presenter guidelines are here as well.
