Rules of the Egyptian Soil Sciences Society (Revised 2012)


1.
MEMBERSHIP
The Egyptian Soil Science Society is the home for professionals dedicated to advancing the discipline and practice of soil sciences relating to environmental quality, ecosystem sustainability, bioremediation, waste management and recycling, crop production, biogeochemistry of trace elements in the rhizosphere, and wise land use. A common thread across the programs and services of ESSS is the dissemination and transfer of scientific knowledge to advance the profession. This includes publishing, meetings, certification, career placement, science policy, and professional development. Within the Society, there is a diverse range of career levels (undergrads, grads, early/mid/late career), employer types (academia, business/industry,/consulting, government), and geographic diversity. As a member-driven organization, programs and services are designed to enhance our members’ careers while advancing the profession.
