Annual Meeting Volunteer Opportunities!

The Oregon Chapter of the American Fisheries Society depends heavily on volunteers to help keep our Annual Meeting affordable, efficient and fun. Volunteering is a great way to meet new members, connect with old colleagues, assist the chapter while serving your profession, or to make attendance more financially feasible (as a student). Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Student volunteers help out on many aspects of the meeting.  Specific information can be found under the “Student Opportunities” tab.  To volunteer as a student please select this option when registering. You will be contacted by the volunteer coordinator, Shannon Richardson, for more information. Student volunteers will be notified by January 31st if they have been selected for a volunteer position at the meeting. A student volunteer commitment includes 4 hours of volunteer time, and is compensated for with room accommodations for the meeting (for Wednesday and Thursday nights, with limited availability on Tuesday night). There are only a limited number of positions, and they will be awarded based on a first-come, first-served basis balanced by school. You must check the box when registering BY JANUARY 19th to be considered for a volunteer opportunity. A waiting list of applicants by school will be kept.
  • Mentors for the student-mentor mixer.  To volunteer please select the option when registering.
  • Judges for Student Posters and Presentations. To volunteer please select the option when registering.
  • Plus more!

This year ORAFS will be celebrating our 55th Annual Meeting, so please consider helping us make it one to remember! If you have any questions about volunteering, contact the volunteer coordinator, Shannon Richardson prior to January 19th.
