CARS is seeking members that wish to volunteer for our new Policy Committee.
The committee will have a central role in helping the ExComm to develop positions and policy related to the application of Fisheries Science in Canada. The committee will also help to provide input to the overall Societies policy development as it relates to Canadian matters.
Once members of the committee are established, a chair will be identified that reports to the ExComm of CARS and its first task will be to work with the ExComm to develop the process to identify key policy and position statements that need development.
It is envisioned that the committee will likely be tasked with developing 1-2 policy/position papers each year based upon need and request of the ExComm, CARS membership and Society. There may also be input to the Societies overall policy development.
We envision that members of the committee may or may not be involved in all policy/position paper development but rather engaged when it is in their particular area of expertise. Time commitment will likely be between 5-10 days per year.
If you are interested, please send a note of interest Re: Policy Committee to [email protected]. Please include relevant biographical and professional details that make you suited for the committee.
