RMS National Board of Directors Nominations due August 15


Dear RMS Members,

You are invited to become a leader in the River Management Society (RMS).  We are seeking members who would like to contribute in a leadership role to advance the RMS mission to support professionals who study, manage and protect rivers.  

Now, more than ever, our role as a national river organization is important. In recent months, the RMS staff and Board have come together with RMS members and partners to share resources and explore ways to manage rivers within federal, state and local health and safety guidelines during the pandemic. Additionally, members are convening to share thoughts and ideas on how to address diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace and for the public resources and people we serve.

The RMS Board of Directors includes National Officers - President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer; along with Chapter Presidents and Ex-Officio Advisors.  The National Officers serve 3-year terms beginning January 2021.   

To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of RMS National Officers see

Join a team of passionate River Managers and help RMS continue its mission into the future!

Thanks for your continued support of RMS. We look forward to hearing from you.

Take care and take heart,

Linda Jalbert
RMS Board President 2017-2020
