Building Bridges: National Leaders’ Perspective on Natural Resource Issues
Presented at the SRM 61st Annual Meeting
Louisville, Kentucky
January 28, 2008

In this symposium, eight organization heads were asked to address the following questions: 1) What are the three most important natural resource issues your organization will face in the next decade? 2) How can the professional societies help your organization face these issues? Agency heads have been invited from ARS, CSREES, NRCS, BLM, U.S. Forest Service, National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, National Association of Conservation Districts, and British Columbia Ministry of Forests and Range. Following these speakers, the AFGC and SRM Presidents will respond from the professional society perspective.
