2015 ZRA Annual Conference Call for Presentations
April 1, 2015Dear ZRA Members:
We are excited to announce the opening of the 2015 ZRA Annual Conference Call for Presentations! Presentation applications can be submitted from Wednesday, 1 April 2015, through Friday, 29 May 2015, 5:00 p.m. EST.
Presentations will be accepted in five primary categories – Record Keeping; Wildlife Permits and Legislation; Animal Transport; Records and Collection Management; and Conservation. We would like to especially encourage our members in countries outside the U.S. to submit presentations on any of these topics so we can broaden our views even further. Please consider sharing your expertise in one or more of these core areas! Remember that your experiences can help your colleagues to be more efficient and effective in their jobs, so don’t hold back!
This year, in addition to the presentations, we are also looking for members who can help lead one of two break-out sessions, one focusing on ‘registrar basics’ and the other on permits (the application process, reporting requirements, renewal requirements, etc.). If you feel confident in one of these areas and would be willing to lead discussions and answer questions individually or as part of a panel, please email Stephanie Eller for more information.
Detailed information can be found along with the submission form on the ZRA website, which can be accessed here:
