2018 FIA National User Group Meeting

Each year, the U.S. Forest Service, the Society of American Foresters, and NCASI collaborate to organize a National FIA User Group meeting. 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.
