Meetings and Events

The American Ornithological Society holds annual meetings, occasionally with other ornithological societies, and every four years joins in the larger North American Ornithology Conference. Meetings offer an exciting opportunity to hear about the latest scientific discoveries, interact with colleagues, provide mentorship to students and early career professionals, and have a lot of fun! You do not need to be a professional ornithologist to attend these meetings. We encourage anyone enthusiastic about birds to attend.
