The 2019 Consortium of Northeastern Herbaria (CNH) annual meeting is being hosted by the Yale University Herbarium and will be held in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Digital Data in Biodiversity Research Conference. The programming that is provided by the conference provides a great opportunity for herbarium curators and collection managers to learn how biodiversity collection data is being used for research, to learn about digital data tools and techniques, and to meet the users of digital data. We anticipate that there will be herbarium- and plant-related talks and posters scattered throughout the conference, and the CNH business meeting will be held at the end of the day on Monday, June 10.
The registration deadline for the Digital Data conference is 17 May.

Beyond registering for the conference, there are no additional actions necessary to participate. There is no separate CNH-specific programming for this year’s CNH meeting, except for the business meeting at the end of the day on June 10.
