Announcements

The Announcements Forum is a platform-wide channel for announcing plant conservation news such as posting job postings, project news, upcoming conferences/workshops updates. Users are welcome to ask follow up questions on announcements, however, questions related to specific conservation topics should be posted within topic-specific boards. The CPC National Office will use this forum as a primary channel for making program announcements - so make sure your conservation officers are signed up!
