2018 Annual Meeting Information

As many of you know, we are holding our Georgia Chapter of The Wildlife Society Annual Meeting on Sept. 6-7 in Tifton at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center. We are looking forward to an exciting array of speakers from around the state. Starting last year, we received approval for attendees to receive continuing education credits for TWS and SAF professional certification programs.

The Thursday night dinner is a catered BBQ (Cooked by GATWS member and Pitmaster Theron Menken). You must buy a $15 dinner ticket by August 30 so we can ensure there is enough food for attendees.
