The North American Invasive Species Network (NAISN) is hosting the biennial North American Invasive Species Forum at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens in Savannah, GA, May 9-11, 2017. This is an international conference bringing together professionals and organizations from various jurisdictions across North America with a common interest in sharing information and improving invasive species management throughout North America, and will attract leaders from regional, national and international organizations from across Canada, the United States and Mexico. NAISN is an American 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations formed in 2010 by university and government scientists from across North America.
The North American Invasive Species Forum formed in 2014 and expands on the previous successes of the biennial Weeds Across Borders conferences, bringing together the international invasive species community. This Forum will include the latest information on policy and cross-border coordination of aquatic and terrestrial invasive species management – including discussions on innovative and effective approaches for collaboration with indigenous and tribal groups, local communities, county, state, and federal government agencies, industry, not-for-profit organizations, and other stakeholders – with the objective of outlining a continental Strategic Framework for aquatic and terrestrial invasive species across North America. As host, NAISN is requesting your support and involvement in this exciting and informative session in 2017. Organizations can choose to support the 2017 North American Invasive Species Forum in any one of the various levels.
We look forward to your partnership for the North American Invasive Species Forum and would be pleased to discuss the Forum’s sponsorship opportunities in greater detail. Thank you for your time and consideration.
