Conference Pins

For each conference, a pin is selected and given to each participant. Conference pins illustrate the conference year and a bird species appropriate to the conference site. Pin designs are selected by competition and are highly treasured conference souvenirs. Many conference attendees proudly display their colorful collection of pins going back many years.
