|Chapter Home||About||Membership||Annual Meeting||News||Contact|
The Executive Board of the TN TWS is excited to invite you to the 2018 Annual Meeting of the TN Chapter of The Wildlife Society which will be held at Fall Creek Falls State Park on February 28 – March 2, 2018. In addition to the usual fun, professional development, and networking we are going to be celebrating TN TWS’ 50th year as a state chapter! We are planning some special events and activities to celebrate this milestone. We want to send a special invitation to our members who were either at the first meeting or helped get the ball rolling in establishing our chapter.
Call the Park Inn at 1-800-250-8610 to reserve your guest room or cabin. Use group block #6780 to get our group rates.
Registration for the 2018 TN TWS meeting is open. Preregistration is required again this year and we need registration completed by Feb. 23rd so we can provide numbers to the park for the banquet and snacks.
Registration costs are $55 for professionals and $35 for students. It includes the Wednesday night social, Thursday and Friday morning coffee and danishes, Thursday night banquet, and coffee for the afternoon breaks. We did have to increase our prices a bit because of increasing food costs – but still a good deal for all the food and beverages it includes. And don’t forget it buys you access to the premier wildlife conference in the state of Tennessee!
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the TN Chapter of TWS. We are selling shirts to celebrate the milestone. The shirt design is attached. Preorders are much preferred and are $15 for sizes small – XL and $17 for XXL. There will be a limited amount for sale at the door for $20-$22. But preorder so your size is guaranteed.
You have two options for registration, paying dues, and buying shirts:
- The eventbrite site – Add your registration and/or dues to your cart and then you will have the option of adding a t-shirt as an additional item in the checkout. There are fees associated with eventbrite so if you would like to skip those look at option #2. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2018-tn-tws-chapter-meeting-tickets-42133987892
- Fill out the attached form and mail Erin Patrick your registration form and a check.
