The Conference Planning Committee has issued a call for paper and poster presentations at the 2019 Annual OFWIM Conference. All submissions related to fish and wildlife information management are welcome, particularly those related to the conference theme Knowledge is Power: Technology to Address Emerging Conservation Challenges.
Download the February OFWIM Newsletter for photos of our 2018 conference in Hood River, Oregon, and a look forward to 2019 activities. This issue also introduces our new volunteer editor, Jordan Holtswarth! Jordan is a graduate student at Tennessee Tech University and recipient of our 2018 Student Scholarship. For future issues of the newsletter, she’ll welcome ideas and contributions from OFWIM members.
Congratulations to new officers installed at our 2018 Business Meeting:
President – Becca Scully President-Elect – Karen Horodysky Member-at-Large – Chelsea Krause
In addition, Michael Barbour was elected to a new term as Treasurer. Service awards were presented to outgoing president Joe Kirby (now serving as Past President) and outgoing member-at-large Karen Horodysky.
For next year’s Conference, OFWIM will return to the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Join us October 6-10 for a full agenda of posters and presentations, with opportunities for hiking and wildlife viewing on the side.
