  1. New Organization Dedicated to the Study and Conservation of Birds in the Americas CHICAGO, IL (December 19, 2016) – Two of the oldest and most influential professional ornithological societies in the world have legally merged, forming the American Ornithological Society (AOS), an organization devoted to advancing research focused on birds in the Western Hemisphere, promoting their conservation, and training the next generation of scientists. Nearly 3,000 members of the American Ornithologists’ Union and the Cooper Ornithological Society approved the merger earlier this year in association with the North American Ornithological Conference held in Washington D.C. Under the leadership of executive director Melinda Pruett-Jones, AOS is based in Chicago at the Field Museum of Natural History. For more information on the new AOS and the merger process, visit www.americanornithology.org. “Over the past six years we have actively collaborated as separate organizations: meeting together, publishing our journals jointly and working together to benefit the conservation of birds. After fact-finding and due diligence, and in response to the tremendous positive feedback from our membership, I am proud to announce a single merged society that will advance ornithology by combining our assets – human, financial and intellectual,” said AOS president Steven Beissinger. The largest ornithological society in the Western Hemisphere, AOS produces scientific publications of the highest quality, hosts intellectually engaging and professionally vital meetings, serves ornithologists at every career stage, pursues a global perspective, and informs public policy on all issues important to ornithology and ornithological collections. AOS assets now exceed $10 million in support of ornithology, and it will invest nearly $1 million to advance its mission in its first year as a merged society. The new organization is undertaking new initiatives to help students, early professionals and international members and to address the needs of scientists, academics and conservation professionals in advancing knowledge, not only in the Western Hemisphere but across the globe. AOS also recently launched a program to encourage members to reach out to their local communities and showcase ornithology as a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) field students might not have considered. “The society is redoubling past efforts to prepare future generations of scientists and conservation leaders. Success requires a multi-dimensional approach that integrates science, new technologies, public policy and citizen outreach; works with other ornithological and scientific communities; and collaborates with local, state, federal and international government entities,” said former American Ornithologists’ Union president Susan Haig, who began the merging effort in 2010. “AOS is distinguished by its tremendous collective expertise, eminent scientists, conservation practitioners, early career innovators, and students. The society will especially focus on attracting diversity in the profession,” said former Cooper Ornithological Society president Martin Raphael. The first meeting of the new AOS will be held July 31 to August 5, 2017 on the campus of Michigan State University. Contact: Melinda Pruett-Jones American Ornithological Society, Executive Director Email: mpruettjones@gmail.com Mobile: 312-420-2292 The American Ornithological Society (AOS) is an international society devoted to advancing the scientific understanding of birds, enriching ornithology as a profession, and promoting a rigorous scientific basis for bird conservation. AOS publishes two international journals—The Auk: Ornithological Advances, which has one of the highest scientific impact rankings among ornithological journals worldwide, and The Condor: Ornithological Applications—as well as the book series Studies in Avian Biology. AOS also sponsors Birds of North America in partnership with the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. The society’s checklists serve as the accepted authority for scientific nomenclature and English names of birds in the Americas. For more information, visit www.americanornithology.org.

  2. AOU and COS are merging, forming the new American Ornithological Society (AOS) to serve ornithologists and advance ornithology in the 21st century. To go with our new name, we are developing a new image to reflect who we are and what we are about—and we would love to have input from the ornithology community. How do you think our new logo should look? We invite you to submit original AOS logo designs or concepts, whether they are polished graphics files or hand-drawn sketches. The winning design will receive a $500 prize. Deadline: Saturday, 15 October, at midnight EASTERN Submission: Please email your entry to Dr. Mark Hauber at markehauber@gmail.com Please submit an electronic file in jpg, png, gif, ai, or indd file format Submissions must include your name and email address Please include a short description of how the design represents AOS Guidelines: We are looking for a logo or logo concept that captures the essence of AOS as a new organization. Entries will be judged for the style, creativity, and impact of a design that can be used in the web, email, and print materials of AOS. Entries may optionally include the name American Ornithological Society and tagline Advancing Scientific Knowledge and Conservation of Birds. More about AOS: The mission of AOS will not depart from the complementary missions of AOU and COS: to advance the scientific understanding of birds and disseminate ornithological knowledge, to enrich ornithology as a profession and mentor young professionals, and to promote a rigorous scientific basis for the conservation of birds. AOS’s vision is to provide an inclusive and stimulating professional home for ornithologists that supports members at every career stage, from students through retirement; to produce scientific publications of the highest quality and make them available to the widest audiences possible; to host intellectually engaging and professionally vital meetings; to pursue a global perspective; and to inform public policy on all issues important to ornithology and ornithological collections. AOS’s long range goals are to: Sustain Scientific Impact Through Financial Support for Ornithological Research Publish the Highest Quality and Openly Accessible Ornithological Research Pursue Excellence in Organizing and Hosting Annual Conferences that Meet the Ever-Changing Needs of Ornithology and Ornithologists Excel In Professional Development for Members at All Stages of Their Careers Recognize and Promote Significant accomplishments in Ornithology Create and Connect a Vibrant Community of Ornithologists Throughout the Americas Individuals serving on the panel of appointed judges are not eligible to submit entries. The contest winner must relinquish all rights to the design to AOS, which will be the sole owner of rights to the design. AOS may employ a graphic designer to finalize the winning design submission into an official logo. Decisions of the judges will be final.
