Are you looking for professional development opportunities you can do from your desk for free? If so, you’re not alone! In our latest survey, we asked invasive species managers, “What would keep you from pursuing more invasive species management professional development opportunities?” The top response was cost, followed by time.
That’s why NAISMA’s professional development committee is excited to announce the schedule for our 2020 invasive species webinar series.
You can hear from the experts about invasive species, with topics ranging from data management, education and awareness, invasive species management and legislation.
Soon we will post more details, including registration information, on our Webinars page. Until then, here’s a peek at who we have confirmed for invasive species webinars next year:
