May 17-23, 2015
Gainesville, FL

The Florida Museum of Natural History and partners are honored to host the 30th Annual SPNHC General Meeting. The meetings will be a week long and are scheduled for May 17, 2015 to May 23, 2015. Traditional symposia, general sessions, tradeshow, demo camps and workshops are currently being planned. These will be held at the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center across from the UF campus and the Florida Museum of Natural History. In addition to the above conference events, we will have various fieldtrips, a plenary session and social events culminating in the 30th Annual SPNHC gala!

The overall theme of the conference will be Making Natural History Collections Accessible through New and Innovative Approaches and Partnerships, which we hope will be an opportunity to link the collections at the heart of our institutions to the demands and uses these collections are addressing in the 21st century. In addition, there will be a range of other themed and open sessions. The program for the conference is beginning to take shape with offers to host sessions, demos and workshops. We are, however, very early on in this endeavor and look forward to hearing from you about your ideas and wishes for the SPNHC 2015 conference.

We look forward to making your 30th Annual SPNHC conference one that you will enjoy and long remember!
