Our yearly membership drive is about to begin! Membership has been down the past few years but we are hoping to dramatically change this trend with new initiatives by the society.
First we are expanding our session at the Entomological Society of America Meeting to incorporate a series of talks that would be interesting to anyone with a fascination for Hymenoptera or fun and adventurous fieldwork. This year you'll find us Sunday, December 12, 2010 from 1:00 PM-5:00 PM in the Ascot (Town and Country Hotel and Convention Center) in San Diego. Our yearly business meeting will follow the talks. Session details (speakers, times, etc.) are listed on this blog.
Secondly we are moving in 2011 to an open access publication model. More information about the new look of the Journal of Hymenoptera Research will be discussed at the ESA business meeting (details above) and on this Website.
Thirdly the ISH newsletter Hamuli is in rapid production. Deadline for the next issue is 31 December 2010. We'd love to have your stories from the field, news items, interesting or funny photos, opinion pieces, jokes, poems, etc. Whatever you think is newsworthy. If you missed it the last issue of Hamuli is available for download here.
You can renew (or join!) online using PayPal or by sending us a check or credit card information in the mail. Please see the membership page for forms, details and contact information.
