30-Years of Dark Sky Advocacy

2018 Annual General Meeting

November 9th to 11th, 2018


The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is a celebration of the International Dark-Sky Association’s 30th anniversary and the community of advocates, conservationists, policy-makers, engineers, scientists and others who work to preserve and protect the natural nighttime environment and our heritage of night skies.


The AGM is an opportunity to strengthen the community of dark sky advocates. A network of night sky enthusiasts from around the globe gather to share their success stories, cutting-edge research, case studies, questions, concerns, and passions for dark skies, and empower one another in their work to preserve and protect the natural nighttime environment.


IDA’s Annual General Meeting is open to the public. You do not have to be a member to attend.


The annual gathering is an important part of building a strong community of dark sky advocates. The full cost per person of the Annual General Meeting is $250. However, in an effort to make the Annual General meeting accessible to as many participants as possible, IDA has implemented a sliding scale registration model. We encourage attendees to register at the rate that’s possible for them.
