Do you need to provide more information
so your employer will authorize your travel request?

With ecosystems under pressure from climate changes, intensive management, and changing fire regimes, now is a critical time for managers and scientists to share ideas and research results. However, with many travel and training budgets drastically reduced, you may need to convince your employer or agency to allow you to attend AFE conferences.  For Talking Points to take to your employer, see the Rationale for Conference Travel article on the AFE conference page.
