Many thanks to all who attended the 2017 conference in New Orleans, Louisiana!
It is the continued participation from so many talented individuals and organizations that make the conference a success, year after year.

  • Did you miss filling out a conference evaluation? Check your e-mail for an invitation to complete the online version.
  • Looking for slides to that great presentation you saw? Due to copyright issues and the increasingly complex formatting our presenters use, publishing all the slide presentations from the conference has grown to be a prohibitively time-consuming task for our all-volunteer staff. IFD&TC encourages you to contact presenters directly to obtain slides for presentations or panel discussions. The 2017 program contains links to at least one presenter from every presentation. Just click on the names of presenters there to send them an email.
  • Looking for the contact information for someone you met at the conference? The list of 2017 attendees is available alphabetically or by organization. Just click on the link in their contact information to send them an email.

The IFD&TC provides a unique forum for government, academic institutions and not-for-profit agencies to informally communicate with each other. Attendees include field directors, field technicians and survey managers. There are no membership dues and the only activity is our annual conference each May. The conference sessions are informal and focus on innovations, work in progress or recently completed work. Highlights include exchanges of information, practices and opinions. Finished papers ready for publication or distribution in official formal proceedings are not required.
