Each year, usually in the autumn, the Inland Bird Banding Association
holds an annual conference in a different part of the inland area.
There you can meet amateur and professional banders and ornithologists
with a wide range of interests, and discuss with them mutual concerns.
The two day weekend meeting includes the following activities:
Scientific papers and reports
Informal talks about birds
Workshop sessions on identification and banding techniques
Video and slide programs about birds
Field trips to watch birds and/or observe banding
Social events and the annual banquet
of banding equipment and literature are always featured at the
conference, and there is usually an exhibition of bird photography or
original artwork by members.
