CARCD Call for Presenters

Building on the tremendous success of last year’s conference, California Association of Resource Conservation Districts is soliciting abstracts for presentations, special sessions, and poster papers for its 2013 CARCD Annual Meeting and Conference:

“The Great Balancing Act: Meeting Rural and Urban Resource Needs”

Given the growing demands of an increasing population, California’s resources are at a tipping point. The essentials needed to sustain life and livelihood (clean water, clean air, food, fiber, land) are under increasing pressure. By working with each other, we can bring balance to these growing and growingly contentious problems. By creating a framework that is scientifically sound and systematic, we can find quantifiable, practical solutions that are in balance with the people, the land and the legacy that is California. We can recognize ourselves as the hand that grows the food, and the hand that eats it.

We invite you to participate in this important conversation.

The conference will be held at the Napa Valley Marriot Hotel and Spa from November 13th through the 16th. We are seeking 15-45 minute presentations of interest to RCDs and partners.

Please submit an abstract by June 25, 2013. Abstracts should be between 100-250 words in length, submitted in MS Word format and include your full name, affiliation, a daytime telephone number/cell phone number, an email address and a length of time requested for the presentation.

Send your submission to emily-sutherland@carcd.org with the subject line: 2013 Annual Presenters

Presentation Formats:

Individual Session (One presentation, 15-45 min.): Individual presentations on conservation topics. We will attempt to group like presentations together into a session.

Group Session (3-4 presentations, 15 min. ea.): This is the perfect opportunity for partnering groups and/or individuals within one agency or RCD to design your own session and presenters. Please be specific about each person’s topic area and give an overview of the session in your abstract.
