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!
