ZRA Training Committee Workshop

Topic: Animal Statistics Database at John Ball Zoo

Presenter: Leslie Silvia, Assistant Registrar / John Ball Zoo

Date: Thurs, May 30

Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Central Time

Platform: Zoom

The ZRA Training Committee is excited to announce the first of hopefully many online workshops designed to share ideas, tools, and resources! Each session will be an informal ‘how-to’ presentation by a ZRA member or partner discussing a topic we think the membership would be interested in learning more about. It could be a deeper dive into something discussed on the listserv, a follow-up to a ZRA conference presentation, or just tips & tricks on how they approach a conundrum of zoo registrar life.

Leslie Silvia, Assistant Registrar at John Ball Zoo, has graciously agreed to be our first presenter. She will be showing us the animal statistics database used at JBZ for departmental communication and collection planning.

The Zoom link and log-in info will be emailed to the membership closer to the workshop date.

Also, we’ll be recording the session, so if you can’t make it, you’ll be able to watch it later!
