Time to once again select the next President of the North Central Division of the AFS.  This is a three-year term, and we have a strong slate of candidates.  Please read the two bios for the candidates, and then click the link below to cast your vote.  Please vote only once, this isn’t Chicago politics!  Remind your co-workers to vote as well.  Votes will be accepted until President Heather tells me to shut it down, or 18 April, whichever comes first

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.
