Hello Nevada Weed Warriors,
I hope that you are all planning to attend this year’s Nevada Weed Management Association (NWMA) conference later this month. In order to make the most out of the NDA round table discussion section, I would like to get some ideas for topics in advance. I am interested in what the folks in Nevada’s noxious weed community would like to discuss, for instance, what do you think are the biggest noxious weed issues for Nevada and what do you see as NDA’s roll.
We have the opportunity to renovate NDA’s Noxious Weed Program so that it benefits Nevada even more. We are looking for input and direction on where you feel we should be focusing our attention and how we can be more involved in combating Nevada’s noxious weeds.
Please reply to me with your topic suggestions by October 18th. We are slated from 3:30-5:00pm on the last day of the conference. We may not be able to get through everything, but this will be a great start and will help provide guidance.
I would like to refrain from discussing Nevada’s noxious weed list at this session. I will have a sign-up sheet at the conference for those of you who are interested in forming a committee that can propose candidate species and look at revising the list.
I see this roundtable as a great way for us all to share our ideas and concerns towards Nevada’s noxious weed problems. There has been a lot of change in the people who participate in the program over the past few years. This roundtable will give us an opportunity to re-form and re-connect. I look forward to everybody’s suggestions, see you all at the conference.
P.S. Please forward this to anyone who may be interested.
