The AGM and Symposium registration will open September 23rd, 2020.

The Entomological Society of British Columbia’s (ESBC) 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Symposium will take place as a virtual meeting using Zoom on October 26th - 28th, 2020, from 10am - 2pm.


AGM Information (Monday - Tuesday October 26 - 27, 10am - 2pm)

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of ESBC will be held as a virtual meeting, using Zoom, with a contributed papers session and the business meeting. For the comfort of our participants, instead of hosting a day-long AGM, the AGM will be two half days of oral presentations of contributed paper sessions. The business meeting will be held at the end of the October 27th session.

Contributions for oral presentation in the contributed papers session are welcome from members of ESBC, students, and other interested entomologists. Students are especially encouraged to submit papers.

Presentations are scheduled for 15 minutes each including time for questions.  There are no poster presentations. 


Final AGM program is available here: ESBC 2020 Final Program Booklet


Symposium Information (Wednesday October 28, 10am - 2pm)

The Symposium will also be open to the general public. Members of the public that wish to attend must register for the symposium in order to receive the link to the Zoom meeting.

The Entomological Society of British Columbia’s Symposium this year will honour the significant contributions of the late Dr. Leland Humble to the forest entomology, invasive species, and pest surveillance research. The Final Symposium program will be available by October 17th, 2020.
