Southern Section Graduate Student Section Co-Chairs needed

The Southern Section ASAS Executive Committee is looking for graduate student volunteers to serve as co-chairs for the scientific sections held during the 2018 Southern Section Meeting. Below is a list of the sections. If you are interested, please contact Sam Ingram (shingram@ncsu.edu) or Sierra Lockwood (slockwo1@vols.utk.edu) and provide your top three preferred sections. Nominations by faculty mentors are also encouraged. This will be a great opportunity for graduate students to get involved in the meeting and network with other Southern Section members.

As a co-chair, the student will be responsible for aiding the section chair with presenter introductions and questions following the presentation. Additionally, there will be a short (10-15 minute) networking discussion following each session in which the graduate student will help moderate.

Sections include:     

Breeding and Genetics
Pastures and Forages
Ruminant Animal Production
Small Ruminant Production
Teaching and Undergraduate Education
Undergraduate Student Competition
