North American Forest Insect Work Conference
What do you do?
This is a meeting of forest entomologists (people who study or work with insects in forest ecosystems) that has been held once every 5 years since 1991. In intervening years, there are four regional groups that meet annually. The meeting is attended by forest entomologists from throughout North America, primarily the U.S. and Canada. However, there are a smaller number of attendees from Mexico and other countries from around the world. Most attendees are federal, state, or provincial employees or university professors. There are also a smaller number of representatives of private companies. Members are either researchers who study forest insects or practitioners who provide entomological expertise to forest resource managers. We need a logo for our meeting to be held in Portland, Oregon in May 2011.
