2019 State Tribal Federal Coordination Meeting

 Building Wetland Program Capacity
in an
Everchanging Environment


Moved to Virtual Meeting

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the leadership at the Association of State Wetland Managers (ASWM) has made the difficult decision to shift the 2020 State/Tribal/Federal Coordination Meeting from an in-person meeting to a virtual one via GoToWebinar. Providing the meeting in an online format will allow us to still provide peer-to-peer sharing opportunities, presentations and discussions while protecting the health and safety of our attendees, speakers and their families. We expect the agenda may change a bit and we will send updates to everyone as we finalize it. As an added benefit, everyone who registers for the annual meeting will receive copies of all PowerPoint presentations as PDFs and will have exclusive access to the presentation recordings.

ASWM’s staff is highly skilled and experienced in running webinars and meetings through GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting. As an organization that produces approximately 50 webinars a year with as many as 600-800 attendees, we are confident in our ability to provide all of you with a top-notch online experience.

For the most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19, please refer to the CDC website.

Online via GoToWebinar



The purpose of this annual meeting is to support state and tribal wetland program managers, and other wetland professionals as they respond to challenges in the coming year. In our rapidly changing regulatory and ecological environment, states and tribes need access to the latest information, case studies, tools and resources as they potentially take on a larger role in protecting state/tribal waters. Wetland and watershed management programs should be grounded in sound science, smart policies, and integrated decision-making. New initiatives will require outreach about the benefits and challenges of proposed program changes with partners and the public on many levels. To meet these needs, presentations and discussions during this year’s 2.5 day meeting will cover a range of topical issues.
