The FAPMS Annual Conference will be held in Lake Buena Vista this year at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel October 5 – 8. Please see the attached Call for Abstracts. The deadline for submission is August 17th. The conference registration form is on the website, along with vendor registration and sponsorship information. We are looking for papers on herbicide application and mechanical techniques (aquatic, natural area and right-of-way), mixtures, innovative control measures, re-vegetation projects, new exotic plant introductions, research projects, etc. We welcome talks from researchers, scientists, applicators and other field personnel – in short, anyone involved in aquatics! You don’t have to be a professional speaker in order to give a presentation! Remember, FAPMS was formed for the aquatic plant manager and the annual training conference is a chance to share what you have learned with other members. Please visit www.fapms.org for additional information.
