Looking for a way to network and contribute at the 2019 AFS/TWS Joint Meeting in Reno?

Be a moderator for a contributed paper session. 

One of the best ways to develop your professional network is to act as a session moderator at a conference in your field. Not only does this associate your name with a topic area, but you’ll also have the opportunity to connect with your peers and meet top researchers in your field.

The Program Committee is seeking moderators for over 20 Contributed Paper Sessions. There are a variety of sessions covering topics  from Fish Health to Marine Fish Ecology and sessions are available throughout the week.  If interested in volunteering please contact Laurie Earley (laurieearley@outlook.com) and Steve Brumbaugh (smbrumbaugh@gmail.com) before June 10th.

Moderating is a great skill to hone. Don’t worry if you have not moderated before – we’ll provide tips and guidelines. Plus it’s rewarding to contribute to a well-run session. We couldn’t have a successful meeting without our volunteer moderators. Thank you!

(Fyi tips on moderating, just for fun)
