Happy Holidays to Fisheries Colleagues and Friends!

The end of the year provides the chance to reflect on the year behind and the year ahead. As I find myself approaching the half-way point of my presidency, I remain both appreciative for the work that we’ve accomplished and encouraged for what we can accomplish in the year ahead. This year has been one of success and progress for the American Fisheries Society.  Our accomplishments in 2016 would not have been possible without the many contributions from our members, partners, and donors. Thank you!

Together, we can maintain the momentum of success and progress into the next year. So, I ask you to continue your support of AFS in 2017. There are various ways for you to support AFS:

  1. Renew your membership in AFS
  2. Give a gift of membership to a colleague.
  3. Making a donation in support of AFS and its programs.
  4. Plan to attend an upcoming regional meeting or our Annual Meeting in Tampa.

As we look toward the future, our work is more important than ever. I hope AFS can count on your continued support to strengthen the fisheries profession, advance fisheries science, and conserve our fisheries resources, both here and around the world.

We thank you for your membership and support this year. If you haven’t already, consider making a tax-deductible donation today to the American Fisheries Society.

Warmest holiday wishes,

Joe Margraf
President, American Fisheries Society
