The 2013 National Outdoor Recreation Conference and IUFRO Conference on Forests for People

Call for Presentation and Poster Proposals

The 2013 National Outdoor Recreation Conference and  IUFRO Conference on Forests for People

The Society of Outdoor Recreation Professionals is proud to be sponsoring the 2013 National Outdoor Recreation Conference in conjunction with the second annual International Union of Forest Research Organizations Conference on Forests for People in Traverse City, Michigan from May 19-23, 2013.

We are pleased to offer this exciting and unique joint forum. These two educational programs will be seamlessly blended, while still retaining the individual identity of the two host organizations. You will have the opportunity to submit a presentation(s), host a poster session, and attend any session of these two educational programs.

One registration form and one registration fee will cover both conferences. The program will offer several joint sessions and field workshops, along with separate concurrent sessions tailored directly to the related themes of each conference. The sessions will be carefully synchronized to allow participants to move across as many as seven choices.

This joint call for presentations and posters allows you to target your presentation and/or poster session to the conference and theme that meets your needs.

This is a new model for professional education and development tailored for these difficult economic times. With the co-location and the joint administration of the programs, participants will have more opportunities and a greater experience.

More information about the 2013 National Outdoor Recreation and Forests for People Conference is at Check back often, as updates will be made regularly as the program develops.
