ASWM & SWS Sign Memorandum of Cooperation

The Association of State Wetland Managers (ASWM) is very pleased to announce that it has developed a formal partnership with the Society of Wetland Scientists(SWS). ASWM and SWS share the common goal of encouraging sound science in wetland research, management, restoration, policy, and conservation. To meet this goal, the two organizations developed a Memorandum of Cooperation that was finalized on October 7th, 2015. This agreement will pave the way for greater collaboration between both organizations to promote and enhance protection and management of wetland resources, to promote application of sound science to wetland management efforts, and to provide training and education for our members and the public. ASWM and SWS will cooperate on communications, workshops, symposia, conferences, publications and other knowledge-sharing efforts. ASWM is very excited to work more closely with our friends and colleagues at SWS and looks forward to our future accomplishments. A copy of the MOC can be found here.
