When it comes to the Chesapeake Watershed Forum, your safety and comfort is our chief concern. It is with this in mind we announce our decision to move this year’s Forum online.

While it disappoints us not to gather together in person, we know that the Alliance and our dedicated Forum planning team are up to the challenge of capturing that Forum magic in our virtual offerings.

We hope you will join us!

We suspect you might want a different experience from the virtual Forum than with the in-person event. For that reason, we are revisiting the dates, length, and general structure of this year’s Forum. We would love your feedback to help make the virtual Forum the best experience possible. Please fill out our survey. Responses will be accepted until June 18.

Look out for more announcements on this year’s Forum, including registration opening in August.

A note on session and intensive seminar proposals:

Our Forum planning team is in the midst of reviewing the submitted proposals for sessions and intensive seminars. If your proposal is selected for inclusion at this year’s Forum, expect additional support from the Alliance and our planning partners to assist you in the transition of your presentation from in-person to virtual.
