2nd VP/ Conference Chair Report
« on: March 26, 2021, 09:29:02 AM »
Conference planning is moving along smoothly and we are well on our way.

We have a keynote, we will have a talk from the Mertz Library at the New York Botanical Garden - focusing on citizen science

Conference program acceptance letters have gone out, and presenters have until today to confirm they will be presenting. 32 breakout sessions, 16 lightning talks, and 6 workshops (formerly the pre-conference) sessions were selected.
The call for poster sessions has gone out, with a deadline for proposals of April 23rd.

Social event planning is well underway and there are a lot of great things planned! Although we will not be meeting in person we believe that we will be providing ample opportunity for networking and interaction both in and out of the sessions.

The conference website is live! We will be adding additional content as it is finalized.

Registration will go live at the beginning of May.

Respectfully,
Carrie Fishner, Chair
