SCBNA recently finalized the hiring of an Administrative Director (AD). Jamie Hogberg, the new SCBNA AD, was chair of the recent NACCB meeting in Madison. Jamie’s background is in both conservation science research and administration. Her work in human-wildlife interactions led to her to become active in SCB’s Social Science Working Group. More recently, she helped develop a successful Environmental Conservation MS Program at University of Wisconsin’s Nelson Institute. Since Jamie is SCBNA’s sole staffperson, her job entails a lot of different aspects, including administrative, finance, conference management, governance, and outreach duties. Part of her job will be to improve communication between SCBNA and members through regular newsletters and social media updates. Jamie will also be closely involved in organizing the NACCB2018 meeting. NACCB2018’s theme is Conservation Science, Policy, and Practice: Connecting the Urban to the Wild. NACCB2018 will be held at the Westin Harbour Castle Conference Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, from July 21-26, 2018. Planning for NACCB2018 is well under way, and we will have materials to share soon. Toronto is a diverse and exciting city which will make a great location for the 2018 meeting.
