    Annual general meeting (March 24-27, 2020, Eugene, Oregon at the University of Oregon. We are meeting with the Northwest Scientific Association (NWSA). Registration is through NWSA. The meeting has talks, a workshop, and one or more field trips. See photos from past meetings.

    Support for students. For 2020 we are offering 3, $100 gifts for students (undergraduate or graduate) travelling to present in the lichen-bryophyte session at the meeting. First priority will be given to those giving oral presentations, second priority to poster presentations. Within those groups, awards will be given in the order that abstracts were received. Also, check for opportunities with your college or university -- most of those have grants for student travel to meetings.

    Field trips: TBA. 

    We plan to have at least two field trips near Eugene. We will update this page as details become available. 

    Workshop: TBA

    Future years: We are eager to have YOU help to organize the lichen part of the annual meeting. The meeting is arranged on a year-by-year basis, depending on the location of the NWSA meeting. This usually happens in mid to late March. The annual meeting typically has four components: talks that present ongoing or completed research (we try to keep this as casual and informal as possible); a workshop on a particular topic, genus, or area; field trips to some local spots of interest; and evening socializing, usually at a local restaurant.
