Conference Themes?

Hi all, we are working away on our 2019 Conference up in Maine and just wanted to see if you have some favorite conference themes from your state that you felt were really successful and broadly covered the field? We are also hosting our first ever Research Symposium the day before our conference...if you have experience with this or would be willing to share advice it would be great to connect via phone for a chat! Thanks!!!!

Hi Olivia, In New Jersey we struggled with coming up with a new theme every year until we decided to jump on the NAAEE conference theme. Why reinvent the wheel? NAAEE puts a great deal of thought into their theme. We simply adapt it to a state level. I asked them a few years ago and they said it was fine. I think it would be cool if all affiliates used the same theme. Best of luck with your event.
