SCB Needs You

Call for new committee members

Every organization faces the challenge of keeping itself fresh through the continual renewal of its active leadership. As we continue to evolve as an organization, we must remain vigilant in bringing new ideas, perspectives, and experience into leadership positions. SCB is in a period of rapid evolution with a number of new initiatives plus revitalization of old undertakings. Much of this work involves committees, and we are seeking members who would like to volunteer to serve on these committees. SCB's standing and ad-hoc committees are determined by the SCB Board of Governors and the SCB membership, and are set forth in the bylaws. Below you will find links to brief descriptions of the various committees and their policies about bringing in new members. Note that several committees are open to new members at any time, while many others do a major reshuffling after each International Congress for Conservation Biology.
