Letter of Invitation from the International Branch President
Dear International Branch Members,
Some of you will just be returning home after a stimulating ESA meeting in Denver. Some of you may have attended the International Branch Business meeting and had the opportunity to hear excellent presentations from this year’s International Branch Award winners. Also at the IB Branch meeting, we made the exciting announcement about the upcoming inaugural INTERNATIONAL BRANCH VIRTUAL SYMPOSIUM. If you were unable to be in Denver or missed the IB Business meeting, I would like to extend a warm invitation to join us “on-line” in April 2018.
The 2018 IB Virtual Symposium will be held April 16-18, 2018 and gives us the opportunity to network with colleagues from around the world without leaving our offices! The three day meeting will feature both video and poster presentations centered around three major themes of broad interest to IB Branch members: IPM, Invasive Species, and Science Communication. We are also trying to create ways by which authors and attendees can interact in real-time. As of November 7, poster submissions are already being accepted and will continue to be accepted until February 5, 2018.
Visit the website often for updates and information on this exciting event. We are working hard to make this a signature event of the International Branch that will continue on an annual basis.
Feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions about the virtual symposium as it is a symposium to support branch members and their interests.
I am looking forward to “seeing” you all in April.
Maya Evenden, PhD
International Branch President
