EARLY CAREER RAPTOR RESEARCHERS – ECRR!
Who can be an Early Career Raptor Researcher (ECRR)?
Current students or those who have graduated within the past 3 years.
In 2009, the RRF Board created the Early Career Raptor Researcher (ECRR) Committee, with the charge of providing more services to and increasing participation of RRF’s student members and those that are early in their raptor researching career. The goal of the group is to better prepare RRF’s membership to take-on tomorrow’s raptor conservation challenges and provide structured opportunities for younger members to become more involved in RRF. Our goal is accomplished by planning events that provide training, professional development, networking opportunities, and other services to RRF’s younger members. In 2010, there was an article on the launch of the ECRR committee in Wingspan.
Any student or professional early in their careers can join the ECRR Group. Most of our activities occur at the annual RRF conference.
- Connect with the ECRR Google Group or Facebook Page.
- Receive a $50 discount on conference registration if you are one of the first 30 ECRR to register and will present a paper or poster at the conference.
- ECRRs are also eligible for a discount on conference workshops typically held the day before the conference begins.
- The ECRR committee hosts a mixer during the conference to assist students and young professionals in networking with other members of RRF.
