Oregon Chapter AFS has Announced Annual Meeting Dates - Call for Symposia!

OR AFS has begun the process of planning their next annual meeting. Mark your calendars for Oregon AFS in Eugene, March 13-16, 2018!

The theme of their meeting is “Fisheries Research and Management in a Changing Climate.” We typically think about climate change in a scientific context. However, socio-economic and political climates are also changing, and these can have profound effects on fisheries research and management. At the 2018 Annual Meeting, we will explore these concepts through technical workshops, targeted sessions, and of course, our legendary networking opportunities.

Now is your chance to be part of this planning process! Meeting planners are seeking proposals for symposia that would contribute to this meeting theme. If you are interested in organizing a symposium, please send an email to Kris Homel at presidentelect@orafs.org. In that email, include a brief summary of your topic, a tentative list of speakers, and your contact information. We will notify symposia organizers by the end of September.

More details as they develop!
