8 November 2010

After the successful joint ASLO/NABS meeting in Santa Fe, we were asked by the ASLO leadership if we would consider holding another joint meeting (with the earliest opportunity being 2014). We also have been contacted by the Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS) about holding a joint meeting with NABS at some future date.

NABS plans to meet in Portland, OR in 2014 at the Portland Convention Center. We have confirmed that the Convention Center can easily accommodate all meeting events for a joint meeting including Plenary, contributed, and poster sessions, as well as the banquet. In addition, there are numerous hotels in close proximity to the convention center that can accommodate all attendees.

We need to decide soon whether or not to hold a joint meeting in order to secure sufficient convention center space within the Portland Convention Center.

Therefore, we would like your input regarding interest in future joint meetings with other freshwater societies.

Please note: We have revised this poll (since its initial posting) by adding a question that better addresses membership interest in joint meetings as well as their willingness to attend a joint meeting. For those who have already submitted a response, they can do so again to register their feelings for both of these attributes of joint meetings.

Please answer the short poll on the NABS website (requires login):


Please provide your online feedback by 17 November 2010, 5pm PST.


For additional comments regarding future joint meetings with other freshwater societies, please email Randy Fuller: rfuller@colgate.edu
