Student Section Business Meeting



Looking forward to ESA 2007 in San Jose…

- We are always looking for volunteers to help organize workshops, evening sessions or other meeting activities. Most of the time, organizing a session will demand very little time. Plus, by getting involved in section activities you will get to know other student members and other researchers in ecology.

- Don’t forget to get your proposals for organized oral sessions in by September 15 (

- We need feedback on whether area students would be willing to offer housing to other students attending the meeting from farther away and whether students traveling to ESA are interested in this housing option. Please send messages to Abby Kula (

- Contact Liz Harp ( by Sept. 30 with your suggestions on a plan to help offset carbon costs of the annual meeting (e.g. traveling). Please place “Carbon Offsets” in the subject line.

- A new workshop on communicating science to the public is being organized by Liz Harp.

° The How to Succeed in Ecology session is being organized again. If you would like to help with this session, please contact Abe Miller-Rushing (

- Submit ideas for topics or researchers for the "recent advances" session to Abby Kula ( The ideas will be compiled and sent to students to decide which idea to support.
