Call for Volunteers

Our meeting is organized by an incredible team of volunteers, and we’d love to have you join our team.  Make new friends and help TWS-WS at the same time!

  • Session Chairs:  We are seeking individuals who are interested in volunteering to serve as the chairperson for the technical sessions. The session chair will help select abstracts to accept and coordinate with presenters. They will moderate the technical session at the conference. If you are interested, please contact President-Elect and Meeting Chairperson:  Matthew Bettelheim, blackfish@nasw.org
  • Student and Early Career Professionals  Volunteers are needed to staff the annual meeting registration table and/or help with audio visual during all presentations.    A limited number of student and/or early career professional volunteers are eligible for discounted or free student registration to the meeting.  For more information, visit our volunteer inquiry page:  http://tws-west.org/tenayalodge2019/volunteer-inquiry/
  • Professionals Needed to Judge Student Posters or Oral Presentations Volunteers Needed to Judge Student Presentations and Posters: Well-rounded communication skills are critical for wildlife biologists in report writing, preparing manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals, or for oral presentation. The TWS-WS student award competition provides an opportunity for seasoned wildlifers to judge, encourage, and offer constructive criticism to future members of our profession. If you are interested in judging the student presentations and posters at the annual meeting, please contact Brian Barton at bbr258@yahoo.com . It doesn’t take much of your time, you can sign up directly for the talks/psoters you’d like to judge, and it’s fun!
  • Planning Committee Thank you to our 2019 Annual Meeting Planning Committee Team.  We are recruiting for additional team volunteers.  Please email candace.renger@gmail.com for more information on open positions.  Link to 2019 Committee List (and Open Committee Positions)
