ESA is seeking nominations for individual members to join several of the Society’s standing committees for terms of varying lengths. (See current committee rosters here.)
To serve on an ESA committee is to make an important, lasting contribution to the Society and to the field of ecology. It is a tremendous opportunity to grow within the organization, developing networking and leadership skills that can facilitate further service opportunities, and advance one’s career.
Nominations are currently open for seats on the following committees. ESA welcomes and encourages nominations that reflect the diversity of the Society’s membership.
Committees Seeking Nominations
The Awards Committee is responsible for selecting candidates for all honorary awards of the Society and for recommending candidates for other awards for which ecologists may be eligible. Subcommittees are established for specific sets of awards as described here. Awards Committee members will also chair subcommittees.
The Science Committee works with the Science Programs Office to develop or define research needs, catalyze or develop integrative, cross-disciplinary approaches for applying ecological information, and communicate ecological knowledge to inform management and policy decisions.
