It's almost that time! NMEA is reaching out to bring in new members to our dynamic organization. Our annual Membership Drive will officially start on Earth Day, April 22, and run through World Oceans Day, June 8.
All new members signed up in the designated time period will be placed in an ‘opportunity drawing’ for some ocean and aquatic themed prizes! Mark your calendars and learn more here >
Share your ideas, lessons, or research in marine education in our journal! The editors of Current: The Journal of Marine Education are seeking articles for upcoming general issues. Get additional details on how you can submit a piece for publication here > The next submission deadline will be July 25.
The journal is a benefit of NMEA membership and current members who are logged into our website can access digital issues of Current. The next general issue will be available soon, and in case you missed it - this special issue of Current was supported in part by the University of Georgia Office of Public Service and Outreach and its units in Marine Extension and the Georgia Sea Grant College Program! It's full of exciting topics focused on engaging communities, solving problems, and creating effective educational programs. Take a look >
Finally, a few quick reminders:
- Are you looking to make a career change? Or seeking a fun volunteer or professional development opportunity? We're compiling employment and professional development opportunities on our website. Have an opportunity you'd like us to share? Send us an email and let us know - we just need a short description, a link to the full posting (either a webpage or PDF is fine), the location, and the closing date.
- We'd love to share your news and events too! Does your chapter have a great regional workshop coming up, or was a member just recognized for something really cool? Or do you have a striking photograph that would look good on our homepage? Drop us an email, or let us know on Facebook or Twitter, so we can help spread the news!
