Welcome to the Southeast Chapter of the River Management Society!
The River Management Society (RMS) is a national nonprofit professional organization dedicated to protecting North
American rivers. The Southeast Chapter is one of seven chapters in the United States established to help the RMS
further its mission by providing opportunities for members to network, learn, and share their knowledge
of river management through participation in SE Chapter activities as well as activities at the National level.
The River Management Society has a membership level for everyone interested in rivers – from the professional
to the interested citizen, from the career manager to the student just learning about rivers.
We invite you to join or renew today!
Check out your great membership benefits including ListServe, members-only publications, the River Studies and
Leadership Certificate program, and our job board.

Chapter Officers & Bylaws
Chapter Officers are volunteers from the Southeastern States who organize activities, represent the nation's region in
national discussions and support an active chapter membership. Officers are elected to serve, or appointed to fill vacancies,
for terms noted. Learn about chapter governance by reviewing the RMS Southeast Chapter Bylaws.
Any professional RMS member in good standing is eligible to run for office. Candidates should be willing to take an active
role and be knowledgeable of the Chapter Officer Roles. Contact any Southeast Chapter officer to become involved in local
or national RMS activities. Chapter officers serve a three (3) year term. The incoming slate will serve through 2017.

Chapter members are encouraged to participate in and when possible help organize float trips, workshops, training sessions,
webinars, and other events including the biennial RMS Symposium. Check this site and other chapter sites for RMS activities

in the National RMS Journal, and submit information for our Chapter newsletter and website. Finally, remember to provide
society representation at state or regional meetings of other groups when possible, and often reach out to people for the
purpose of recruiting young professionals and helping all members feel informed and welcome.
