Dear ASG members and members of the amphibian conservation community,

We wish you a prosperous and productive 2017 and look forward to working with you on amphibian conservation over the course of this year and the current IUCN period (2017-2020). As you may know, IUCN Commissions are in the process of reconstituting themselves for the current four year period. Given the sheer number of members (10,000+), this is a complex and involved process. ASG is awaiting instructions from the Species Survival Commission (SSC) for proceeding with its own reconstitution process. We understand that following this reconstitution phase, a new process will be implemented for bringing in new members into the SSC.

We will be posting updates as they become available.

Thank you for your patience,

ASG Secretariat
