Joint Annual Meeting 2015: Montreal, November 8-11

Dear Delegates / ESC Members,

We understand there has been some confusion in registering for the Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) taking place in Montreal in November 2015. This is related to the transition from our old membership system to the new membership system implemented by our new association management company.

The Early Bird Deadline and the Submission Date has been extended to Friday, September 18th to help those that are having issues registering.

If you have not yet registered for the JAM and are concerned about registering as a member and receiving the member rate before the early bird deadline, please go directly to the following link:

You do not need to login as a member on this page in order to register for the JAM. Just select your registration category (member, non-member, student, SEQ member etc.) and enter the required information on the next screen. If you have not yet renewed your membership, the ESC office will follow up with you to renew your membership once you are registered for the JAM, which will allow you to qualify for the member rate.

If you are a member you can also go to this direct link and register for the conference if you are having issues accessing your member information online.

We apologize for the confusion and are working towards implementing a single login system as quickly as possible. Please contact the ESC office (1-888-821-8387 or info@esc-sec.ca) if you are experiencing any issue with registering for the JAM conference.

Voting to select candidates for Director at Large and Societal Director (Second Vice-President) of the Entomological Society of Canada has now closed.
Thanks to all members who participated. The selected candidates will be presented for election at the Annual General Meeting in Montreal on November 10 2015.

2016 ESC Annual Meeting and International Congress of Entomology
We are pleased to announce that we will be co-locating our 2016 annual meeting with the International Congress of Entomology (ICE) hosted by the Entomological Society of America (ESA) in Orlando, Florida (see http://ice2016orlando.org/)! The ESC Governing Board has voted to accept the ESA's invitation to join them and other national entomological societies at the ICE 2016 venue.

We also are pleased to introduce Murray Isman (UBC) as our appointed representative to the ICE Organizing Committee. Murray is already poised to collaborate with the ESA in ensuring a smooth merger of meetings. Of the options presented to us by the ESA in their invitation, we have opted for a separate, pre-ICE conduct of our Society's business, and then full access to what will be a diverse and rich ICE scientific program under the theme of Entomology without Borders.

So mark your calendars for September 23- 30, 2016, and look forward to more announcements as we move closer to the big event.

~ Your ESC Executive
