The 39th annual conference of the Western Aquatic Plant Management Society will be held March 1-4, 2021 and will be virtual. The meeting will be a joint meeting with the Western Society of Weed Science. All WAPMS members are invited to participate in the virtual program by presenting a paper as an oral presentation or display in the poster session. If you have already registered/submitted for the 2020 meeting, and would still be able to attend/present, please contact Cory Greer, WAPMS President-Elect, at the link below. Those originally registered for the 2020 meeting are automatically registered for this event.
Oral presentations will now be prerecorded and are strictly limited to fifteen (15) minutes, and that includes a 2 to 3-minute period to respond to live questions from the audience. This is a change from previous WAPMS meetings to match up with WSWS in this virtual environment.
WAPMS will be applying to all western states for Continuing Education hours based on the oral presentations to be given during the three day conference.
