Volunteers Needed for 2018 Western Division Meeting in Anchorage

American Fisheries Society Western Division 2018 Annual Meeting hosted by the Alaska Chapter – May 21-25 2018, Anchorage, Alaska

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 Vice President and meeting Program Chair Jeff Falke via email at afs.alaska.vicepresident@gmail.com or by phone at 474-6044. Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
