Why join the Student Subunit?
Benefits of subunit membership include access to one of the largest networking opportunities in the field today, the American Fisheries Society. Our subunit is built around community service, professional development, and continuing education for the students of Mississippi State University. Members receive exposure to educational activities such as workshops, meetings, and volunteer programs, as well as work experience learning how to use gear, built habitat, and teach kids about fish. Subunit membership includes membership in the Mississippi Chapter of the American Fisheries Society if paid for a full year ($10). Subunit members receive the quarterly Mississippi Chapter newsletter as well as an opportunity for conference travel compensation. Also, student members may now participate in the decision making process of the Chapter executive committee through our their student representative.
