Attend CFO’s annual meeting online from anywhere. This year’s meeting is open to CFO members only and is separate from the convention banquet to allow for the joint CFO/WFO convention schedule.
We’re thrilled that CFO President, Nick Komar, who is mid-way through his Big Year, will give a presentation on his attempt to find 900 species within the USA and its territories in a single year! Nick recently retired after 25 years as a biologist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although battling Parkinson’s Disease since age 38, he still has enough energy and passion for birding to attempt this feat at age 57.
The Zoom link will be sent to you once you register for the Annual Meeting.
