Continental Dialogue In Person and Virtual Meetings 2022

The 2022 Continental Dialogue on Non-native Forest Insects and Diseases will be held in two parts- one in person as a one day workshop, and the other a series of webinars similar to the 2021 Virtual Summit.

The in-person one day workshop was held on September 20th 2022, in association with the Entomological Society of America, hosted by the Society of American Foresters National Convention in Baltimore MD.

Separately, for the series of webinars, we will plan to structure 2 to 4 sessions in late November and/or early December 2022 that will cover different themes from the in-person workshop. For the webinar series, we will discuss concepts such as; early detection, rapid response, management, pathways mitigation, and forest resilience within North America. Dates, themes, and speakers for the webinar series will be determined in fall 2022 and posted here.
