Hi everyone, I want to reiterate Matt Shumar’s welcome to the new web site of the Association of Field Ornithologists’ web page. I first want to acknowledge Matt’s hard work to develop a beautiful site, with a new structure and exciting new features that we hope will further better communication among our members. But to make the most of these, we have to engage these new features. The Blog has the greatest potential for spreading useful information…. jobs, new insights into strategies for finding post-doc opportunities, exciting new research findings or even promoting your own new publication. Our site has drop-down menus with information that we deem relevant, but the Blog provides an opportunity for members to post what they find relevant. As more and more of us use social media for communication, these new links help bring AFO’s message to new forums and, hopefully, new members. Thanks to everyone that has contributed to our vision of a new, interactive web page. The new web page is still evolving and we welcome your input in ways to make it even better!
Reed Bowman, President, AFO
