The Iowa Chapter hosts an annual meeting in February or March each year. The meeting includes a formal business meeting during which awards are presented, discussions are held, and motions are voted on by the membership. Typically, about 1-1.5 days of professional and student presentations are given, along with a poster session and plenary sessions. 

Joint 2023 Meeting

The next annual meeting is scheduled for March 1-2, 2023, at the Quality Inn and Suites in Ames, Iowa, as a joint event with the Iowa Chapter of The Wildlife Society.

Meeting registration costs will be announced soon but will likely be ~$80, with a discount given to students and retirees.
