The Acadian Entomological Society is a registered scientific society whose objectives are to bring about a close association of entomologists and those interested in entomology in the four Atlantic Provinces and the neighbouring New England States, and to cooperate with and to support the Entomological Society of Canada.  Founded in 1915, the Society caters to professional entomologists, amateurs, and educators.  Membership is open to anyone with an interest in entomology.  The Society meets annually, typically in July, and publishes proceedings from these meetings. You can now join the AES online here.
