2004 ESA Annual Meeting

2004 ESA Annual Meeting

November 14-17, 2004

Salt Palace Convention Center

Salt Lake City, Utah

"Entomology and ESA: Our Heritage, Our Future" is the theme for the 2004 Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. The science and applications of entomology were ennobled by our predecessors, ensuring the vitality of the ESA for decades. Entomologists and our Society now face new frontiers. As a result of scientific breakthroughs, new technologies, and a world full of political and economic changes, the knowledge, skills, and work places of entomologists are dramatically different than they were a decade or two ago and than they likely will be a decade or two into the future. The institutions and companies that employ us are in a constant state of change, and the changes in our discipline, our jobs, and our world present new challenges to the ESA as well. Now is an ideal time to re-examine the strengths of our past and chart the paths that will fulfill the promises of our future.
