Membership GoalThe geographical extent of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter has yet to be determined as members join. However, present members include those from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. The geographic advantage of being close to U.S. policy makers and making chapter members available on short notice if needed to represent the Society on relevant issues is the impetus.
Mission StatementA Mid-Atlantic Chapter might be a way to bring the collective expertise of SFS closer to the center of where much of the nation's (United States) decision making is made with regard to environmental issues. Furthermore, the Chapter wishes to bridge the gap between academia and practitioners, alleviating any communication boundaries that may keep relevant, applied questions in the field of freshwater science from being explored by investigators carrying out research in the University setting.
