30 Jan Alumni Network Update, December 2018
The IRF Board of Directors has recently committed to continued support into 2019 for the formation of an Alumni Network. The Network’s steering committee has developed an annual work plan that determines governance, explores specific member services, and identifies funding models. A major focus of the work plan is to highlight the river stories and experience of IRF Riverprize Alumni at the 2019 International Riversymposium in Brisbane next October, including Alumni keynote presentation, unique networking opportunities, and Alumni-specific sessions during the event examining results of long-term river initiatives since winning the prestigious Riverprize. The Alumni Network’s steering committee members will reach out to their peers to gather river stories and recruit participation and presentations for the 2019 Symposium. Alumni are currently invited to contact IRF staff if interested in sharing their advancements in river restoration, conservation and management.
