This is a courtesy posting of an event that may be of interest to individuals participating in the Taxonomic Certification Program. There will NOT be a taxonomic exam offered at the event.

The Southwest Association of Freshwater Invertebrate Taxonomists (SAFIT) workshop this year will focus on the aquatic Hemiptera/Heteroptera and will be presented by Dan Polhemus of the Bishop Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii. There will also be a section on taxonomic updates.

Cost to attend is $300 for SAFIT members and $400 for non-members. Current students may apply for a scholarship to have the workshop fee waived. Students and staff from UC-Davis may attend all or part of the workshop for free, but please notify Bob Wisseman at that you will be doing so to make sure we have enough room.
