The Annual Conference of the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies is a forum for the exchange of ideas and critical information regarding the management and protection of fish and wildlife resources primarily in the southeast. The conference attracts over 500 representatives from state and federal agencies, citizen’s organizations, universities, and private wildlife research groups, fisheries and wildlife scientists, agency enforcement personnel, and other natural resource related organizations.
The Missouri Department of Conservation is looking forward to hosting the 74th Annual SEAFWA Conference to be held at the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield, Missouri, on Sunday, October 25 - Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
The theme for the conference is: Design for the Future
We realize the impact of the coronavirus is being felt across our region right now, and we know this is a challenging time for everyone. Since we can't predict the prolonged impact for the future, we plan to run the conference as scheduled and will adapt conference deadlines and policies as necessary. We will continue to provide updates on our plans for a successful event.
