131 Symposium--Harnessing Senior and Emeritus Members to Advance Agronomy, Crops and Soils
Oral SessionSpecial Sessions
The TriSocieties have a large number of retired or near-retirement members, some are 'active' emeritus members, others do not find useful niches in TriSociety programs. This session will explore ideas that will identify meaningful activities within the TriSociety framework, but also in a broader sense of service to society through educational programs, international organizations, foundations, local and national governments, universities. The session will have several speakers on topical areas followed by a panel discussion and extensive audience interventions. Special emphasis on how senior members can stimulate youth to agricultural careers and how our profession contributes to human well-being.
