46th Annual Desert Tortoise Council Symposium
Multi-day, Virtual Symposium Planned for February 2021
We are in the planning stages for a virtual 46th Desert Tortoise Council Symposium for February 2021. We are very fortunate to have teamed with the Turtle Survival Alliance and their experts for the event. These experts have already supported a successful, multi-day symposium in August 2020 with 200 to 400 people in attendance each day. For 2021, we will hold the symposium on the mornings of Tuesday and Thursday starting February 9. There will be the usual sessions with oral presentations and posters, as well as the mixers (with your own beverages and snacks, of course), sponsors, awards, raffles, vendors, and more. We know how important the personal contacts are to you, so we are planning for break-out rooms and other options to meet these needs. Abstracts will be due early by November 15. Experts will be available prior to the symposium to assist you in preparing your presentations.
Annual Business Meeting
The Annual Business Meeting of the Desert Tortoise Council will be held prior to the Annual Symposium. The Annual Business Meeting will include a report from the Chair of the Board of Directors, reports from committee chairs, and officer elections.
