The Rocky Mountain Conference of Entomologists held its first meeting in Pingree Park, Colorado in 1923. The group, founded by Dr. C.P. Gillette and George M. List, is a collection of graduate students, professors and researchers all with a shared interest in entomology. With a diverse group, we hear presentations on applied entomology, systematics, biological control and others! With the exception of a temporary hiatus during World War II, the group has met annually without fail.
Why Attend RMCE?
1) It has been noted among members that the main attraction to RMCE is the informality of the meeting. There is no need for suit, tie and that special cologne, but do bring your ideas and plan to share them with the group. It is also a great place for beginners to present their research, with low pressure and a friendly but critical audience.
2) A trip for the family. RMCE welcomes family members to join the meeting. Our families often enjoy the many attractions near Cathedral Ridge, our usual meeting site, while we enjoy presentations and conversation about our research.
3) The RMCE is great place to relax, network and present your research after a long hot season in the field.
