Created in 2011, this group of students and postdocs strives to give voice to any student of Mycology and help students succeed in their present and future fungal endeavors. The student section is trying to make teaching Mycology (the study of Fungi) easier and more accessible to everyone. This year we created a "How to Guide" to prepare students for the MSA annual research conference including: what to expect for poster sessions, how to prepare an elevator speech, and even tips for how to network. Every year we sell t-shirts and other student merchandise to raise funds for student activities like the annual student and postdoc social, and workshops & other professional development activities. This year our annual conference was in Puerto Rico which was devastated by Hurricane Maria last fall. So the student section pledged 50% of our funds raised from merchandise to a science student organization at the University of Puerto Rico to help with their recovery.
