The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the knowledge and use of fire in land management. Our members include scientists, educators, students, managers, practitioners, policymakers, and interested citizens. Anyone who supports our mission can become a member of AFE and through active involvement can help shape the emerging profession and growing field of fire ecology.
We are currently soliciting applications to serve AFE and continue to support its mission. Positions available include serving on topical committees, as well as on the board of directors. All applicants will be considered for both positions, unless otherwise stated. These are unpaid volunteer positions. Applications will be reviewed starting Oct. 25, 2013. Please send your letters of intent to: Catia Juliana, AFE Co-Director.
