Region Meetings

To connect our members regionally, ANCA offers peer-to-peer opportunities for professional development in regions across the country.

"...Yesterday's ANCA Region Meeting (and I hope my first of many!), was so informative. I came away invigorated and ready to implement the materials presented. It was also wonderful to hear the sharing of experiences and challenges of other nature centers in our region. You did a wonderful job organizing and facilitating the meeting. Kudos!"
-Mary Harkola at Beaver Lake Nature Center speaking about the New York Region Meeting
