What to look forward to at the virtual Convention 

While we will not be meeting in person, we are excited for the opportunity that a virtual format will bring. We express our gratitude to the National Committee on Convention Programming and California Society of American Foresters. The committee, with Program Chair Damian Adams and General Chair Keith Gilless at the helm, has worked diligently with staff to plan an engaging and thought-provoking program aimed to connect attendees on a broader scale.  As you make plans to attend this year’s event, please note that we learned a lot from last year’s virtual convention, and 2021 will be a new experience for all.  We will be offering a variety of educational, networking, and business development opportunities while reigniting fan favorites like the SAFter Party, People, Policy, & Popcorn, and much more! Get ready to get those competitive juices flowing as the Quiz Bowl will make its virtual return to this year’s convention! Review the agenda

We are also delighted to announce that we will be returning to Sacramento, California, for the 2023 SAF National Convention!  We are grateful for our partners and host society for their willingness to work with us in rebooking this event.
