Section Meetings

SCB's Regional Sections represent various geographic regions and disciplines around the globe. The Sections strive to facilitate conservation biology and educate groups in their specific regions or disciplines. In order to do this, symposia are often organized at SCB annual meetings, but Sections may also sponsor their own Regional Meetings. 

SCB's annual meetings (ICCBs) are now held every other year, and Section meetings will be held in the off years. For example, there will be an ICCB in 2013 and in 2015, and multiple Section Meetings will be held in 2012 and 2014. 

SCB's flagship meeting is the International Congress for Conservation Biology. Click here for more on ICCB. See a list of past and future ICCB meetings here
