Call for Volunteers – 2018 Western Division Meeting in Anchorage – May 21-25

Planning for the 2018 Western Division American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting, hosted by our Alaska Chapter is in full swing. This is going to be a huge meeting, and it’s up to our Chapter to ensure that it’s a great one! We are now soliciting volunteers to help with the meeting arrangements.  There are ample opportunities to help out – the best being serving on one of our excellent committees! Below is a draft list of committees and subcommittees for which we need volunteers.  If you’re interested in serving on one (or several!) of these committees, please contact AK Chapter President-Elect and meeting Program Chair Jeff Falke via email at or by phone at 474-6044. Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
