The American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America are seeking proposals for an Ombuds for their joint annual conference in St. Louis, Missouri, October 29-November 1, 2023. The contract would require pre-conference training of leadership, the in-person services during the conference, and post-conference follow up (including a written report) through December 2023. This would be the first Ombuds for any of these professional associations. There also is related opportunity to train ASA-CSSA-SSSA volunteers on "how to appropriately assist and identify bias, harassment, and inequities for bystander intervention."

Applicants must have at least three to five years of Ombuds experience or the equivalent experience in mediation or conflict resolution, and training. Proposals are due by June 15, 2023. (IOA Job Board.)
