The 2022 National Grasshopper Management Board Annual Meeting

Facilitating communication among private, state, tribal and federal stakeholders interested in grasshopper management.

 

The National Grasshopper Management Board, in cooperation with USDA-APHIS-PPQ, invites you to attend the 2022 Post Field Season Conference starting the morning of September 20th and concluding at the end of business on the 21st., 2022.  

 

Registration for the meeting in Salt Lake City meeting is available on Brown Paper Tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/5529808

  The cost is $50. If you would like to request a registration waiver you can email: ngmb.gh@gmail.com  to do so. I registered for the meeting and it worked smoothly. While I was at it, I called the Sheraton Hotel and reserved my hotel room for $128 per night via the NGMB negotiated room block rate. To get that rate you need to reserve them a month (Aug19th) before the event.
