The SSAR Student Participation Committee has begun a project where we will profile the SSAR’s committees and leadership positions. Our goal is to provide members with a better idea of what the society and its leaders do throughout the year, since many members’ contact with the SSAR happens primarily during the annual Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists (JMIH). We plan to release a couple new profiles each month, and we may pick up the pace if additional students would like to help out with the project by interviewing SSAR leaders and writing up profiles. We hope that these leadership profiles will inspire members, especially young members, to become more active in the SSAR.
Here is a list of profiles that we have completed. We will update the list as we add new profiles.
If you are a student who would like to help out with this project, please contact the Chair of the Student Participation Committee, Jessica Tingle (firstname.lastname@example.org).
