ASN Stand-alone Meeting 2020

Posted on

Planning for stand-alone meetings requires a two-year lead time.  We had feedback from some attendees at the 2018 meeting that they would like the meeting to move around the country more.  Unfortunately, the lead time was too short to change venues for the the 2020 meeting, we will again meet in Asilomar. Casey ter Horst has generously agreed to organize this meeting.

We are actively looking NOW for organizers and venues in other parts of the country for the 2022 meetings. Please make suggestions!

To recap: we need a venue that can accommodate 220 people, with approx. 7 smaller meeting rooms, one large room that can accommodate all present, joint eating facilities, and that ideally is located in a nice natural setting, in a place that is pleasant outside in January and not prohibitively expensive. These are harder criteria to meet than one might imagine.

Anyone with suggestions for either organizer or venue, please contact Sharon Strauss (systrauss@ucdavis.edu) and Michael Whitlock (whitlock@zoology.ubc.ca)
