Future Members

If you are interested in being a member of the Marine Board, you must be a member of SCB and a member of the Marine Section. Generally 2 to 4 board members are elected annually. The Call for Nominations goes out in November or December, and the election runs in December. Each year section members receive a notice via the Marine Listserv about the open positions and the start of the election process. For more information about getting involved with this board, please contact a board member or info@conbio.org. Each Marine Section board member is a volunteer and serves a three-year term. Terms are staggered such that not all officers retire each year.
