Convention and Trade Show

Save the Date: 2022 Convention and Trade Show

March 6 – 10, 2022

Each year, nonprofits, land management agencies, and businesses come together to network, learn and share expertise for the benefit of public lands.

At this time, we're planning for a return to an in-person event for 2022. However, the health and safety of our community is of utmost importance, so we are closely watching the evolving COVID-19 conditions as we plan for this event.

“My rating of [PLA 2021] on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being outstanding, my score is 100! The content was just what I needed as a board member. The sessions were engaging and thought provoking. My thanks to the entire PLA team and presenters on a job well done. I am leaving well equipped with new ideas and validation of our work at Zion.”
