The important business and scientific efforts of the American Ornithological Society are directed by volunteers through our governance, membership, and program committees. Students and early professionals are especially encouraged to get involved through many volunteer opportunities, including the committees.
  4. Engage in the broader ornithological community by contributing data critical for bird study and conservation through Scientific Resources and Citizen Science.
