2018 FIA National User Group Meeting

The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the U.S. Forest Service is the most important source of data and information about forest conditions and trends in the United States. FIA data are used for many purposes, including wood supply analysis, conservation planning, carbon cycle modeling, and assessment of sustainability.

Each year, the U.S. Forest Service, the Society of American Foresters, and NCASI collaborate to organize a National FIA User Group meeting. As announced in the February 2018 issue of the Forestry Environmental Program News, the 2018 National FIA User Group Meeting will be held in Berkeley, California on April 24–25, and will be followed by a Carbon Day program on April 26. The meeting also includes a field trip to Muir Woods on the morning of Tuesday, April 24.

Participants will learn about current issues affecting the FIA Program, status of various FIA projects, and user applications of FIA data, and will have the opportunity to provide input to FIA program leaders on the needs and priorities of FIA data users. 

A more detailed agenda, information about the venue, and access to registration are available at https://www.regonline.com/fiausergroup2018. Meeting registrations will be accepted through April 17; however, the special room rate at the meeting hotel is no longer available.
