Welcome to the Southeast Chapter of the River Management Society!

Comprised of river managers from the states of West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Our goal is to further the RMS mission by providing a regional forum for SE members to discuss river management issues and strategies through active participation in chapter meetings and events usually in a fun, friendly, and scenic environment. The chapter offices are working hard to represent the Southeastern States by promoting regional activities, representing the South in national discussions and supporting an active chapter membership. Chapter ByLaws provide direction for meetings and activities of the SE Chapter and Chapter accomplishments and chapter activities will be posted. We hope these activities will interest you. If you work in a river management field and live in one of the SE states we invite you to join RMS today!

Upcoming Activities 

2012 North American River Management Symposium - April 24-26, 2012

Join us at the biennial symposium that will highlight precedent-setting river management issues, stewardship successes and keynotes whose topics range from the Obama Administration's vision for rivers and accounts of the devastating effects of mountaintop removal, to remarks about award-winning narrative of Four Fish, matching the theme "From Intimate Creeks to the Infinite Sea."  Field trips will make the classroom sessions come alive on the Nantahala, Chattooga, French Broad, and Nolichucky Rivers, angling in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and visiting the federally protected Wilson Creek. A full day workshop focused on Section 7 of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, and other activities will fill up a week full of opportunities to learn from river management specialists, policy experts and practitioners.

Asheville, North Carolina provides the backdrop for a jam-packed week of unsurpassed river management learning and networking, and special lodging rates are still available.

See y'all there!
