This is not a stickup!  This is Prez Kopaska demonstrating what April 2020 looks like, most likely from home and sadly not in his sampling boat!


Next Prez-Elect will be Mark Fincel!

Congrats to both Mark and Jim Lamar for running two tight campaigns, with minimal mud-slinging and no accusations of impropriety!  National politicians should take note!   Take a moment to congratulate Mark.

The NCD Ambassador Program is a way to encourage more communication and collaboration between our AFS Chapters.  The Ambassador Program encourages chapters to “invite over a neighbor” from one of your neighboring states to give a presentation at your annual meeting.  Additional info is available HERE.

AFS Emerging Leader Mentorship Award Program

The American Fisheries Society requests applications for the Emerging Leader Mentorship Award (ELMA) Program.  The purpose of the ELMA Program is to develop future leaders of the Society, and the fisheries profession as a whole, by providing selected candidates an opportunity to participate for one year in activities of the Society Governing Board.  Participants in the Program are selected based on their level of involvement in AFS, as well as their potential for assuming leadership of Society units in the future.  Click HERE for more information.
