Call for Proposals!

The Texas Master Naturalist 18th Annual Meeting is NOW accepting proposals for presentations! This year’s Annual Meeting will be held October 20th, 21st and 22nd at the Omni Corpus Christi overlooking the western shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The Texas Master Naturalist Program welcomes your proposals as contributions to our agenda! Individuals wishing to present are invited to submit their proposal on the Texas Master Naturalist Annual Meeting Call for Proposals website: http://www.regonline.com/TXMN2017CallforProposals .

Meeting Overview

The Texas Master Naturalist Annual Meeting is geared toward Texas Master Naturalist volunteers, their chapters, agency advisors, representatives of partner organizations and supporters of the statewide TMN Program. The meeting provides an opportunity for volunteers and affiliates to receive all of their Advanced Training requirements for the year within one weekend. It’s also an opportunity for program participants and supporters to network, share new ideas and projects and to learn from one another.

As a workshop presenter, you would have the opportunity to inform and train TMN members from across the state on various natural resource topics providing more in-depth information than their initial core training and curriculum. You are also encouraged to make this an opportunity to enlist and train our program volunteers to assist you, your program, and your work as part of their annual volunteer service commitment.

Special topics for presentation focus for 2017 include – Developing and utilizing social media resources; Non-game species and the roles they play in conservation across the state; engaging diverse audiences in the Master Naturalist programs – as members and as an audience; leadership skills for managing groups of volunteers when conflicts arise; the shared roles of hunters & recreational natural resource users in the larger plan for conservation.

The deadline for submissions is Thursday June 1st, 2017.
