Forming a BSA Student Chapter: Benefits, Experiences and Connections.

Many active botany clubs exist at community colleges and universities around the country. However, only a few have signed on to become BSA Student Chapters. There are some tangible and significant benefits to belonging to a BSA Student Chapter. This workshop will feature presentations, discussion and a question/answer session by the leaders and members of BSA Student Chapters as well as BSA staff who support and facilitate their efforts. While some BSA Student Chapters are well-established, many are just starting to take off and connect with other botanical clubs around the country. Come learn about what BSA Student Chapters can do, how they benefit your members, save you money, connect you to diverse opportunities, and grow the botanical community in meaningful ways. This workshop is targeted to undergraduates, graduate students, and potential professionals in the field who wish to learn more about BSA Student Chapters.
