The Conservation Planning Group Applied conservation research

SCB Oceania are looking for new board members

SCBOLogo-ColorThe Oceania Section of the Society for Conservation Biology are currently seeking nominations for 2 new board members. I’ve been on the board for 2 years (and will be for 1 more) and it’s been great. Serving on the board is a good way to get more involved with the workings of a professional society (looks great on your CV!) and with SCBO, to make sure that conservation science, scientists, and practitioners doing great things in our region are well represented on the global SCB stage. You don’t need to just take my word for it… read about why Vanessa Adams, Conservation Planning Group alumnus and SCBO President Elect, got involved here.

The current board members are a wonderful and enthusiastic group. We have working group committees on conservation science, education, policy, management. We organise public events, and fantastic regional conferences every two years. Our 2016 conference is being held in Brisbane in July (and it’s not too late to submit an abstract for a late-breaking poster).

If you think you could volunteer a bit of your time to keep making SCBO better, why not throw your name in the ring? You can view the full call for nominations here. The deadline for nominations is Friday, 29 April 2016.
