Save the Date: Wind Wildlife Research Meeting X


The tenth NWCC Wind Wildlife Research Meeting will take place the week of December 1, 2014. The meeting will take place in Broomfield, CO, at the Omni Interlocken Resort.

The biennial Wind Wildlife Research Meeting provides an internationally recognized forum for researchers and wind-wildlife stakeholders to hear contributed papers, view research posters, and listen to panels that synthesize the most recent wind power-related wildlife research. Academics, researchers, conservation scientists, consultants, federal and state officials, NGO representatives, and wind industry professionals came together for this unique opportunity.

The meeting will be organized and presented by the American Wind Wildlife Institute (AWWI).

Planning
Planning for the meeting will begin in late 2013/early 2014. If you are interested in helping to plan the meeting, please sign-up here.

There are many opportunities to help plan the meeting; please find short descriptions of the various opportunities below.

  • Serve on the Advisory Committee, which meets regularly by phone to discuss all aspects of the meeting, from developing the call for abstracts to planning additional meeting activities. Committee members will be requested to participate on monthly calls, review language, provide input on the agenda, and contact individuals regarding participation in the meeting (based on personal relationships). The approximate average commitment of each Committee member is 1-5 hours per month.
  • Review Abstracts, which involves reviewing and scoring all submitted abstracts. This can take up to 8 hours of time over the course of a month or so, depending on the number of abstract submissions.
  • Support the Meeting with Financial or In-kind Contributions. To keep registration costs low, contributions are critical to putting on this state-of-the-art meeting.
  • Volunteer During the Meeting, which can involve a variety of tasks, such as helping with set up, registration, or the poster session.
