The Central Hardwood Conference will be an in-person event.

While we are hoping that all presenters will deliver their presentations at the conference, we understand some people cannot attend for personnel reasons or due to employer travel restrictions. The conference registration fee includes all meals and breaks during the conference.

We are pleased to announce that our conference facility has agreed to provide support to host a virtual option for conference attendees. The virtual option will include real-time access to all oral presentations and Q&A sessions that follow. For presenters that elect the virtual option, we will request a pre-recorded presentation with the presenter available for questions following the presentation.

Note that late registration rates apply after March 23rd, 2022 March 25 2022 at 4pm EDT – Extended due to Late issued USFS Travel Approval – Full $375 | Virtual $300 | Student $200

Online registration is now closed. If you still plan on attending the conference, please notify as soon as possible so that you can be added to the catering order.
