STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE ON SWSPCP BOARD OF DIRECTORS - APPLICATION FORM

The Society of Wetland Scientists Professional Certification Program (SWSPCP) values the perspectives of students in fulfilling the mission of SWSPCP to identify qualified individuals who have the education and experience to serve as experts in the assessment and management of wetland resources. To gain insights from students on the application and certification process, and on the initiatives of the Program, the SWSPCP Board of Directors established a position on the Board for a Student Representative (Rep), as a non-voting member. The Student Rep will be appointed for a 1-3-year term, depending on active, graduate student status. The applicant for Student Rep should be an SWS member (1 year minimum) and should have attended an SWS Annual Meeting at least once in the past 3 years. The Student Rep will be offered a stipend to cover their WPIT (Wetland Professional in Training) or PWS (Professional Wetland Scientist) application and/or annual maintenance fees during their term of service. Responsibilities and duties of the Student Rep include: attending Board meetings; providing reports on activities and initiatives that affect students who have been or those who desire to be certified as a WPIT or PWS; representing student members of SWS from around the globe; participating in discussions relating to the role of students in the Program; and promoting interactions and common activities between SWSPCP and student groups in SWS. Please submit this form to be considered for the position of SWSPCP Student Representative.
