The American Fisheries Society has developed a variety of guidelines and toolkits to help Units grow and maintain themselves effectively. If you are a new Unit leader, check out the Unit Survival Manual (currently under revision) for a start, and be sure to investigate the resources available for ensuring appropriate bylaws changes, meeting conduct, change of officers, and many other technicalities of running a Unit successfully.
Need help with committee and volunteer organization? Trouble with funding? Check out the guidelines on running a trade show or silent auction. There are tons of tools here for you to use in your AFS Unit!
For additional questions, please contact the Unit Services Coordinator or other Unit Staff Contacts.
