Abstract

On the Ground About eight decades ago, The Society for Range Managements founders began to shape and refine their collective vision to create a science-based professional society that would serve as a platform for learning and collaboration on all aspects of rangeland management. The inaugural meeting in 1948 led to the founding of the American Society of Range Management (ASRM), a new journal dedicated to range science and management (The Journal of Range Management), an initial ASRM committee structure, and decentralization of ASRM through the formation of local sections. ASRM (now known as The Society for Range Management or SRM) has achieved many milestones and accomplishments since its founding. Although todays issues are different and more complex than in 1948, the basic leadership principles espoused by the founders provide a template for addressing the challenges that the rangeland profession faces in the 21st century.
