Welcome to the California Central Coast Chapter of The Wildlife Society


 Interested in becoming more involved with the CA Central Coast Chapter? Think someone would be a great Board Member? We would love for you to join our team and support our Chapter.

Nominate yourself or a colleague for a position on the Chapter Board! We would love to have you join our team!

Nominations are due by October 15, 2022 and voting will occur in-person at our Wildlife Symposium. Newly elected Board members will have plenty of overlap with the existing Board to get up to speed on procedures, position duties, etc, and will take over their position in February 2023. Choose from the following positions:

President Elect (3 year term*)
The President Elect leads Board Meetings in the absence of the President, helps out where needed throughout the year, oversees the appointed Professional Development Committee Chair position, and learns the ropes to assume the duties of the President the following year. *The President Elect serves in the position for one year, as President for one year, and then as Past President for one year.

Treasurer (1 year term)
The Treasurer is responsible for the files, records, and funds of the Chapter, completes quarterly and annual financial reports, and receives and disperses funds as required. Duties also include reviewing and finalizing Workshop and Symposium budgets.

Secretary (1 year term)
The Secretary takes minutes during all meetings and distributes them to board members after the meeting, maintains the Chapter email account and associated correspondence, oversees the Membership Manager and Media Manager positions and performs their duties when they are not available.



The California Central Coast Chapter of The Wildlife Society is celebrating 50 years as an organization with a limited edition design on Bonfire. All proceeds for this fundraiser will go to support students in the field of Wildlife. Annually we support our student chapters at Cal Poly SLO and UC Santa Barbara, the TWS student conclave, and provide scholarships to the Western Section and National conferences. Please support our students and help us celebrate our anniversary today!
