The North American Congress for Conservation Biology happened in Toronto, Ontario, Canada this past week and I had the honour of attending. The conference was mostly focused on terrestrial research and conservation; however, there were some great talks. Unfortunately, I learned some lessons while attending a conference in my hometown.
For one, when a conference is in your hometown, you have to make sure you commit to attending the conference like there is nothing else going on.
Second, I didn't plan the conference like I normally do. I didn't look at the program the week before for the names of the speakers and make a list of people I wanted to meet. Networking is a big part of my plans and I work hard to ensure I meet the right people.
I was able to meet some people at the socials that went on for the conference, which was wonderful, but planning ahead would have allowed me to do a better job to meet more people.
Listen to the episode to find out the rest of the highlights of the conference.
