Over 40 OFWIM members and other professionals attended our 2017 conference at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo. We had fine weather for field sessions and a full slate of posters and presentations that explored new ways of sharing fish and wildlife data with decision makers and the general public.
Congratulations to new officers installed at our 2017 Business Meeting:
President – Joe Kirby
President-Elect – Becca Scully
Member-at-Large – Karen Horodysky
In addition, MaryEllen Wickett was elected to a second term as Secretary. Service awards were presented to outgoing president Jeanette Jones (now serving as Past President) and outgoing member-at-large Becca Scully.
