NESAF Turns 101! Celebrating the Past, Looking to the Future.
Online registration will be available through the ForestEd platform on the National SAF Website, beginning February 10th, 2021. Individuals will need to use their SAF Account Credentials in order to login. Nonmembers may need to create an account to register.
The winter meeting program is being evaluated for Continuing Forestry Education (CFE) Units. The program will also be archived on the ForestED platform for individuals unable to attend the live event, however, prior registration will still be required. In addition, the first 200 SAF registrants will receive a commemorative NESAF mug!
NESAF would also like to encourage attendance by younger professionals. If your most recent forestry degree was awarded within the last five years, contact Jennifer Shakun for information on how to receive $10 off your registration.
To engage all members, we are seeking flash talks. Researchers, field foresters, and other land managers are encouraged to participate, as sharing your experiences will benefit the entire membership. An abstract is required for a flash talk. The abstract includes a title and each author’s full name, affiliations, and locations, lead author’s contact information. The body of the abstract (not including names, etc.) is limited to 300 words. The deadline for submission is February 21st.
Flash talk sessions will be on March 22th from 2:00PM to 3:20PM, and on March 23 from 10:30AM to 11:30AM. Up to 24 presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. The 10-minute timeframe is strictly enforced with 7 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for questions.
Flash talks accepted for presentation will be notified by email by March 8th and accepted abstracts will be included in the Spring NESAF News Quarterly. To submit your flash talk abstract for consideration, contact Tony D’Amato, by February 21st.
