*Over 400 RMS members are currently taking advantage of the RMS Listserve. The purpose of this service is to give RMS members another avenue to discuss river resource issues, post messages, solicit advice from other professionals, and/or announce events or job vacancies. As a subscriber, you may send a message to and will receive messages from the group.

This listserve is for RMS members only and is moderated by the RMS Executive Director. Any message that is sent to the listserve will be screened and posted, if appropriate, to the listserve. Messages that are not approved for the listserve will be returned to sender with an explanation.
