is now accepting workshop and seminar proposals for the
2018 Pennsylvania Land 
Conservation Conference
April 12-14, 2018
The Desmond Hotel (Chester County)
Our Theme this coming year is
Land & Water Conservation 
in a Changing World

This conference will attempt to address the various challenges and unknowns that so many organizations are confronting these days, including evolving missions, expanded service areas, new and innovative collaborations, updated fundraising strategies, changing climate, land use trends, diversification and shifting demographics, ever-changing public policy, and just maintaining relevance in a changing world. Plus we’ll cover traditional topics such as land conservation, stewardship, water protection, stream and wetlands restoration, stormwater management, land use planning, forestry, organizational development, communications/outreach, fundraising, and finance. 
Submit a workshop on one or more of the above topics (or your own idea). Formats include half-day and full-day seminars, short workshops and roundtables. Feel free to call Nicole Faraguna at 717.909.1298 to discuss an idea or topic.
Deadline is October 23rd.
