ANNUAL MEETING

November 14 – 15, 2020

Join us for this year’s

Virtual Annual Meeting!

The Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for Pennsylvania Master Naturalist volunteers and trainees to gather, participate in educational seminars and receive a large portion of their Advanced Training requirements for the year in two days. It’s also an opportunity for program participants and supporters to gather and meet, share new ideas and projects, and to learn from all participants of the program.  This year’s theme will be “Nature for Everyone.” We invite Master Naturalists, our partners and member organizations, and nature professionals to present at this year’s event. Please note that this event is not open to the public.

EXHIBITION: Call for organizational members and partners to submit a video highlighting your programs or projects and showcasing your accomplishments and/or service opportunities. Your video will be shared and accessible during the Annual Meeting. Also, we invite you to share an informational video of a special natural area or unique natural history of your region or local area. Please consider the following: 5-15 minutes per video (short is OK!). Q&A will take place live online during the conference exhibition (3-5 minutes). At least 1 representative from the program should plan to be in a “attendance” during the exhibition session in which the video will be shown (if you can’t attend the conference, your program is still invited to submit a video!). Lastly, please submit a video abstract by September 18th (this is required to finalize our agenda). Lastly, submitters will be notified of video approval and time frame no later than September 25th. For more information about video submissions, please contact Michele Richards at michele@pamasternaturalist.org.

SPONSORS: Pennsylvania Master Naturalist is seeking sponsors for this year’s meeting. Our attendees include citizen volunteers and partners from a variety of regions throughout Pennsylvania. Support will allow us to offer scholarships for our volunteers to participate and build meaningful connections by underwriting the cost of planning, technology, speaker honorariums, volunteer recognition, and more! Your support is greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged. For more information about our sponsorship levels and request form, please contact Michele Richards at michele@pamasternaturalist.org.
