Annual conference

Each year, we hold a conference at a different location within the Rocky Mountain Region. It’s an opportunity to meet new members, make new contacts, share experiences, enjoy local events and activities, learn from a variety of seminars and experts, and get new ideas and inspiration.
Each conference offers field trips and presentations unique to its locale, but there are some things we repeat. And some of those require your participation. Click here for a checklist of what you should be bringing to the conference.

Conference 2019 will take place in Estes Park, Colorado, the eastern portal for Rocky Mountain National Park, from September 9 to 12.
