Southeastern Estuarine Research Society
A non-profit educational organization dedicated to the informal exchange of interdisciplinary information related to estuaries of the southeastern United States. SEERS promotes discussion of estuarine research, science, and management; promotes discussion of current research projects and management issues; and encourages participation of student colleagues. SEERS membership is largely, but not exclusively, from the states of NC, SC, GA and FL. SEERS typically meets twice per year, including the biennial CERF Conference. SEERS is an affiliate society of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation.
Registration is now open for the 2015 Spring Meeting, to be held March 12-14, 2015 at the Jacksonville University Marine Science Research Institute! See the Next Meeting page for registration, prices, deadlines (February 12), student travel awards, presentation guidelines, and links to reserve a hotel room.
Also remember to renew your membership for calendar year 2015 if you have not already done so, or join as a new member. Members receive discounted meeting registration, and student members may apply for travel awards. You can pay dues along with member meeting registration, or pay membership separately.
2015 Spring Meeting
DATE: March 12-14, 2015
LOCAL HOSTS: Quinton White (Jacksonville University) and Nikki Dix (Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, University of North Florida)
Details will be posted on the Next Meeting page as plans develop.
The Secretary, Treasurer, and Graduate Student Representative positions on the SEERS Board of Directors will be up for election in November with the positions beginning at the 2015 Spring Meeting (which will be organized by the current Board). All of these positions are for 2-year terms with the expectation of attending all 3 regional meetings during that time.
SEERS is a volunteer organization that needs people to serve on the Board and help the organization prosper. It is a very rewarding endeavor and looks great on your resume and/or tenure package. The student representative must be a post-baccalaureate student who has completed at least one academic year toward an advanced degree. If you are a first year student now, then you do qualify. The student representative receives a SEERS travel award of $150 for each regional meeting.
You can nominate yourself or someone else. If you nominate someone else, please first check with them that they are willing to serve. Please contact Past-President Bob Virnstein with nominations or questions by Sept. 30, 2014.
