AFA Call For Papers

Project proposal deadline is March 15, 2008

By Rachael Brugger

The American Federation of Aviculture, Inc. (AFA) is accepting project proposals through March 15, 2008 to be presented at this year’s AFA Annual Convention in St. Louis, Missouri. Applicants may submit one or more ideas as abstracts.

Abstracts should be no more than 250 words and must include the author’s name, mailing address, e-mail and phone number. The applicant should also attach a brief biography explaining his or her experience with the topic and other relevant information. The commitee can extend submission deadlines if notified by March 15.

The application committee will notify applicants of their application status upon receiving the abstract. Those applicants selected as speakers will be required to sign a speaker’s contract, which will be sent out March 28. They must provide AFA with a short bio, a current high-resolution photograph and a paper to be published in the convention proceedings and in the Watchbird, the official AFA publication, by May 1.

Speakers will give 40-minute presentations followed by a brief question-and-answer period at the convention July 30 to August 2. AFA will provide audio-visual equipment and will specify those terms in the contract.

The AFA represents aviculturists with many interests in bird care, bird conservation, bird keeping and more.
