Michael Barber and I are already hard at work pulling together speakers for 2023. If you have seen speakers at other clubs or events or through other channels that you'd like to have invited to PVAS, please indicate them in this thread. Sometimes there is a multi-year lead time for international and domestic in-demand speakers. For example, we first tried to schedule Lucas Bretz in 2018. But sometimes the stars align and someone has availability sooner rather than later. We want to hear your thoughts.
You can also offer suggestions for extracurricular activities. The Smithsonian Amazonia Exhibit private tour is an example. We abandoned the outdoor pond tour at member's homes this year for a couple reasons, but I'd love to try this again next year.
Let us know your thoughts and it will shape our planning for the next couple of years programming.
