The IASNR Council has recommended changing the name of our annual meeting and this is a voting matter for the membership. There has been some confusion between the name of our flagship conference—the International Symposium for Society and Resource Management (ISSRM)—and the name of the association and our journal, Society & Natural Resources. Some people who attend ISSRM are not aware that it is sponsored by IASNR. In order to create tighter organizational identity, Council has embarked on a process to rename the ISSRM to more closely resemble the other names. It is now time for IASNR members to take a vote on this issue. Please check your email for a message from IASNR with a voting link, and vote by August 7th. The results of the vote will be sent to IASNR members the week of August 10th.


Please email Jessica Hill ([email protected]) if you have any questions.


Best regards,
