Dear FITS members,
We are seeking a new Communications and Outreach Coordinator (COC) to replace Sarah Grasty. Sarah has done a wonderful job – thank you!! – and now her two-year term is up.
The COC oversees section outreach and communications with Section and Society members. Activities and duties include emails to members, social media posts (Twitter and Facebook), and managing web content (website experience not required). The COC often assists with our annual meeting efforts (continuing education, symposium, and our 150 celebration booth for Baltimore 2021), and attends most monthly ExCom meetings. COC projects that are appropriate to the Section are encouraged. For example, Sarah published a series of tech articles for the Section News part of Fisheries magazine (example 1, example 2). The COC is appointed by the FITS President for a two-year term.
If you are interested in this position, please send a short paragraph explaining your interest and qualifications to Secretary Kayla Key (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 30 September.
Looking for other ways to participate? FITS is also in need of a rep on the AFS Resource Policy Committee. Visit units.fisheries.org/fits/ for details.
Your FITS ExCom
Paul Venturelli, President
Tiffany Hopper, President-Elect
Rebecca Krogman, Past President
Kayla Key, Secretary-Treasurer
