“In terms of opportunities for networking, professional development, and meeting up with old friends, the Annual Conference is by far the most productive few days of the year.”
– Jonathan Derbridge, AZ
The Wildlife Society’s Annual Conference is one of the largest gatherings of wildlife professionals and supporters in North America. For now 30 years, TWS has hosted this unique and informative event that provides dozens of networking opportunities through working groups, meetings and receptions as well as nearly 1,000 educational opportunities that encourage discussion and collaboration.
At our conference, wildlife professionals make new connections with colleagues in wildlife science, research, management, business and education. Students meet professionals who can serve as mentors or provide insights on careers, job opportunities, current research and best practices.
Over the past three decades, TWS has hosted our annual conference within an impressive 25 different cities across 21 states and two provinces. We hope you join us in Louisville, as TWS once again prepares for a memorable event filled with engaging speakers, immersive workshops, and numerous networking opportunities.
