Practitioner Engagement

The Practitioner Engagement Working Group aim is to develop strategies to enhance practitioner engagement with the Society and to develop programs and initiatives that will assist ecological practitioners to undertake their professional roles. In 2014 members were surveyed in part to determine how the ESA can further enhance national ecological practitioner engagement.

Results from this survey clearly highlighted that members would be interested in finding out what other Australian Ecologists are working on and facilitating greater discussion/linkages among ecologists via online forums and face to face meetings.  The ESA is therefore committing funds to initiate an Ecological Practitioner Engagement Committee (EPEC) and activities which will enable Ecologists across the country to engage through symposia and other activities.
