Join The Early Life History Section
Membership in the Early Life History Section (ELHS) of the American Fisheries Society (AFS) is open to all persons or organizations interested in furthering ELHS objectives and is established or renewed by calendar year upon payment of annual Section dues (15.00 U.S. dollars).
Voting Membership is restricted to Full members in good standing of the American Fisheries Society (AFS).
Affiliate Membership is open to persons (or organizations) who are not members of AFS. Affiliate members of the Section are encouraged to participate in Section meetings, committee work, and other activities, but they cannot vote on official Section matters, run for or hold an elected office, or chair standing committees. All members receive STAGES , the official ELHS Newsletter, and are entered into our database so that they can easily be contacted about Section business and events.
We strongly encourage you to JOIN US!
