“Seven years ago I was hired at the Society of American Forester’s Convention in Orlando, Florida; today I am part of an amazing team that is coordinating the event. To say the Recruitment Event at SAF changed my life would be an understatement.” — Leah Rathbun (Forester - Regional Biometrician) hired at the 2009 SAF Convention in Orlando, FL

“SAF is a wonderful networking and learning opportunity for any forester, it linked me to a career with the Forest Service. Working for the Forest Service has been challenging and exciting. I have a lot of opportunities to grow and succeed.” — Lette Benson (Sale Prep Forester, Big Horn NF) hired at the 2014 SAF Convention in Salt Lake City, UT
