Announcement from the Early Career Committee
The American Fisheries Society (AFS) Early Life History Section (ELHS) is a diverse group of researchers who span every continent on the globe. As such, social media is a great opportunity for our section’s researchers to connect and engage with each other outside of our annual meeting.
The ELHS’s Early Career Committee manages our social media platforms. Our goal is to feature and promote the great work (current and upcoming) that our members are doing. As our section continues to grow, we want to grow our social media presence, too. We need your help to do this!
If you, or anyone in your research group, has content that may be relevant to the AFS ELHS please email it to [email protected]. Some examples would be photos of you in the field, newly published papers, a blurb about a recently funded grant, etc. This is a great opportunity for you to share your research to a broader audience and to connect with others studying the early life stages of fishes. When possible, include photos, videos, links to papers, and a caption (max 280 characters). Also provide the names of any accounts you would like us to tag. We will review these materials and if the content aligns well with our section we will post it to our Twitter and/or Facebook page.
If you post elsewhere, please consider using the #AFS_ELHS hashtag or tagging us (@AFS_ELHS on Twitter; @earlylifehistory on Facebook) in relevant content so we can better engage with you.
Finally, if there are any accounts that you feel are relevant to the AFS ELHS that we are not already following, please tag us.
Thank you, in advance, for engaging with us!
Kind regards, The AFS ELHS Early Career Committee
