FMCS Meeting 3/03

The 2003 symposium of the Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society is scheduled for March 16 - 19 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Research Triangle Park, Durham, NC. The theme will be "Connections . . . A Focus on Habitat Conservation." John Alderman will be our host (aldermjm@mindspring.com).

If this third biennial symposium of the FMCS is anything like its predecessors in Chattanooga and Pittsburgh, registrants are sure to enjoy excellent papers, super social events, and great fellowship with comrades on the front line of mollusk conservation. There will be a meeting of the Gastropod Committee, probably on the 19th. Registration forms, details regarding accommodations, and a call for papers can be found at [link removed].

Note the following deadlines:
  • November 30 - Submission of abstracts.
  • December 6 - Applications for student travel awards.
  • December 15 - Early Registration.
  • February 28 - Hotel reservations.
Hope to see you all there!
