Members’ Wetland Webinar Series
ASWM launched a new monthly members-only webinar series in early fall 2012. Topics alternate between science, policy and legal issues each month including the new wetland plant list, wetland restoration, wetlands and climate change, economic benefits of wetlands, important court cases and more. Members also have access to recordings of past webinars in this series.
The Association’s membership newsletter, Wetland News, has been published for nearly 25 years. The publication includes Association News, with analyses of important developing topics in wetland policy, management and science. Each issue features an original report or publication of interest to wetland and natural resource management professionals. Recent editions of Wetland News have featured issue papers by Jon Kusler, Esq. Ph.D., an SWS Lifetime Achievement Award-winning wetland policy & management expert; Peg Bostwick, ASWM’s Senior Policy Analyst with over 30 years of wetland science and policy expertise; and Jeanne Christie, ASWM’s Executive Director, nationally recognized as a leader in wetland policy and a recipient of a National Wetlands Award. In addition, other articles on wetland topics, such as state wetland program planning, wetland professional certification, wetland mapping and climate change adaptation, have appeared in Wetland News, often in advance of availability to the general public. Not all publications featured in Wetland News are posted on the ASWM website for the public eye; some are only available to members and work groups. This publication is an invaluable resource to members, who may not otherwise have access to wetland-specific findings or information that is not published elsewhere. Members receive 5-6 issues per year and access to archived editions.
A weekly bulletin exclusively available to ASWM Members, highlighting important news stories, posts from ASWM’s rotating staff blogs and weekly Climate Change Features. Members are also welcome to submit wetland-related job notices to be listed. ASWM keeps members informed of any special opportunities or critical legislative news through this weekly update.
Members gain easy access to a collection of wetland-related titles, recommended reading and publications and receive a discount on a selection of books and publications.
Reduced Rates for Participation in Workshops and Training Sessions
ASWM members receive a reduction in fees for our workshops and training sessions including our annual State/Federal/Tribal Coordination Workshop held at the National Conservation Training Center each year.
Involvement With Committees, Workshops and Training
Members are encouraged to join committees and to take an active role in these collaborations. This provides members an opportunity to gain experience in issues of national importance to the management of wetlands. ASWM works with a number of partners throughout the nation.
