Are you a motivated Early Career Member?
The Early Career Members Committee (ECMC) serves members beginning their careers - new professionals and graduate students in agronomy, crop, soil, and environmental sciences. The ECMC consists of members from each of the three societies who serve three-year terms.
The Early Career Member Committee (ECMC) serves many functions:
1.) A voice for Early Career Member's (ECM's) within the ACS societies and on federal policy topics.
3.) Serve as the selection committee for the Early Career Professional Award.
4.) Prepare an article for the CSA News on a monthly basis on topics relevant to ECM's.
5.) Moderate the ECMC online discussion boards.
6.) Obtain input and develop recommendations on ways to better serve Early Career Members
beyond the activities at the annual meetings.
