Past Meetings

The 2019 AFS-TWS Joint Conference in Reno, Nevada served as the kick-off for the OITF Initiative. Our big event was the inaugural Out in the Field luncheon for both LGBTQ+ members and Allies and served to educate attendees about OITF. The luncheon also served to jumpstart discussions on how to accomplish the three goals of the initiative, help LGBTQ+ attendees start to get to know each other and demonstrate that there are allies within many levels at TWS.
