Status of the Consultants' Roster
The International Society of Tropical Foresters has eliminated the Consultants' Roster Service.  Richard Reid, an ISTF volunteer, established the roster in the mid-1990s and it was maintained by ISTF volunteer Bob Van Aken.  It was designed to match members with specific skills and knowledge with requests for consulting services. We found that much of the information in the electronic files was out of date and of questionable accuracy.  Many of the original members listed are no longer active, their availability is unknown, and addresses and telephone numbers are no longer accurate.  To bring the Roster to an acceptable level of reliability would have required starting over with a total review of the information in the database.  Since there were relatively few requests recently to use the roster, we felt it was time to look at other ways for providing this service.  In its place we have expanded our web site to include an area where members who are available for positions can post their availability and we can also post specific requests for consultant services or positions

Positions at ISTF The International Society of Tropical Foresters serves mainly as an information exchange for foresters and researchers in the tropical regions of the world. Our budget does not currently allow for on-the-ground programmes and projects. The office here in Bethesda Maryland is staffed mainly by 6 volunteers--whose work is invaluable to the organization. We have only one part-time, paid staff member.

El ISTF provee información a los ingenieros forestales e investigadores en las regions tropicales del mundo. No tenemos fondos para programas o proyectos propios. Nuestra oficina aquí en Bethesda, Maryland (EE-UU) opera con la ayuda voluntaria de seis personas y un empleado pagado, a tiempo parcial.
