Annual State Federal Tribal Coordination Meeting

Adaptation & Resiliency for the Advancement of Wetland Science, Policy and Practice

We invite you to join us for ASWM’s Annual State/Tribal/Federal Coordination Meeting, to be held virtually April 12-15, 2021. The purpose of this annual meeting is to support state and tribal wetland program managers, and other wetland professionals as they respond to challenges in the coming year. This year’s annual meeting will be held virtually again due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but each day’s agenda will be shorter, start later and include plenty of breaks. 

Focus Areas for This Year’s Meeting Include:

  • Federal policy updates and significant court cases
  • Wetland science and climate change resiliency
  • Wetland Program Capacity: Adapting to New Regs, COVID-19, Budgets
  • Mapping, tools and technology
