Poster Session

Audubon Convention 2017

Poster Session Guidelines

The National Audubon Society (NAS) invites you to submit a proposal to present a poster at the Audubon Convention 2017, being held July 14-17, 2017 in Park City, Utah. This is your opportunity to share your knowledge and hard work by developing a creative and informative poster to share with the Audubon network’s leadership.


ELEVATING AUDUBON: AMERICA’S MOST EFFECTIVE CONSERVATION NETWORK

Designed to bring together Audubon’s vast network of dedicated chapter, state, national, and international leaders from across all four flyways, this biennial convention includes inspiring speakers, in-depth workshops and discussions, exciting field trips and birding adventures (Utah has more than 450 bird species)! Your poster is a valuable addition to our program.


OVERVIEW

  • A poster is an excellent way to informally present your work, projects and information.  The presenter creates a graphic poster of the information to be shared.
  • Posters may include information about innovative conservation programs or projects, education and outreach efforts, or your research that reveals new information about birds.

POSTER TOPICS

NAS seeks a range of poster topics that reinforce our conservation strategies, and share best practices for chapter health and development, education and outreach, diversity and inclusion, and the use of new technologies. Appropriate topic areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Conservation (Climate/Clean Energy, Bird Friendly Communities, Working Lands, Coasts, Water)
  • Chapter Health and Development
  • Education and Outreach
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Advocacy
  • Technology (ArcGIS and Social Media)

POSTER SESSION INFORMATION

Posters will be mounted on provided poster boards on easels during the convention’s Welcome Reception (beginning 6 pm on July 14). We ask that presenters mount their poster in time for the Welcome Reception. Presenters are asked to stand beside their poster for at least one half hour during the welcome reception/poster session to help answer any questions.


YOUR NEXT STEPS: SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL

Complete the online proposal form. You will need the following information:

  • Name, title, chapter name of each leader (as it should appear on a name tag/brochure)
  • Your mailing address, email and phone
  • Title of poster
  • Summary of the poster topic (300 word limit)
