Section Congress

SCB's Regional Sections represent various geographic regions and disciplines around the globe. The Sections strive to facilitate conservation biology and educate groups in their specific regions or disciplines. In order to do this, symposia are often organized at SCB annual meetings, but Sections may also sponsor their own Regional Meetings. 

SCB's Global Congresses (ICCBs) are now held every other year, and Section Congresses will be held in the off years. For example, there will be an ICCB in 2017 and in 2019, and multiple Section Congresses will be held in 2018 and 2020. 

SCB's flagship congress is the International Congress for Conservation Biology. See a list of past and future ICCB here
