Why should I join the Student Chapter?
Why shouldn't you join? The benefits of membership are numerous.
AFS is a way to network with professionals in the field of fisheries
science. It's also a way to get fisheries experience through field
activities and a way to learn more about fisheries resources. The
earlier you start, the more you'll benefit.
How do I join?
There are a number of ways to join AFS. Attend one of our meetings.
Contact an officer. Just get involved!
How much are dues?
Dues are $5 per academic year.
What sort of activities do you do?
We strive to make our activities both educational and fun. At our
monthly meetings, we invite guest speakers from both the private and
public sector to share their experiences and wisdom with us. We also
like to get out into the field to volunteer with Montana Fish,
Wildlife, and Parks and other organizations on their various projects.
We attend fisheries meetings every year, such as the Montana Chapter of
AFS annual meeting and Wild Trout Symposia. In the future, we hope to
visit area schools to teach them about fish and the value of
conservation. We like to give our members practical experience in field
work and dealing with the public.
How much time is involved?
This depends on your commitment to the Subunit. You can put in as much
time as your schedule allows. But the more involved you are, the more
you'll benefit from your membership.
