- planning to contribute to the meeting (e.g., by presenting a paper or poster, organizing or participating in a workshop or symposia, or by helping with registration, translation of abstracts, etc.)
- actively involved in conservation on their island
- expecting to secure or have already secured partial funding from other sources
- willing to assist BirdsCaribbean by volunteering their time in some way, and willing to seek opportunities to share their experiences at the meeting with their colleagues back at home.
