NOHVCC Virtual Annual Conference

Online

In many ways and many areas of the Country, life is beginning to return to normal. It is everyone’s hope that the vaccines for COVID-19 continue to make it possible for more and more activities (like Annual Conferences) to safely move forward. Unfortunately, the NOHVCC Board of Directors and staff have made the difficult decision to postpone our in-person Annual Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee until 2022. While it may have been possible to gather together this year there are simply too many hurdles to overcome for staff to put together a conference we could be proud of, and that attendees would benefit from and enjoy. A major concern is that it may not be possible for many land managers to attend in person as a result of travel restrictions. We also rely on managers to fill a significant portion of our agenda as presenters and their presence would have been limited. Further, limited attendance may have made the Conference prohibitively expensive to move forward. The good news is that NOHVCC staff is preparing a virtual suite of presentations and opportunities to interact. While nothing beats getting together, sharing best practices, ideas, and recharging for the upcoming year, we hope we can provide an opportunity to facilitate discussion and get everyone ready for 2022 and the likely return to normal for our Conference.
