Due to organizational changes within the North American ornithological community, The Wilson Ornithological Society (WOS) needed to change its membership portal. Allen Press, who has published the WOS journals since 1952, will be handling this function for us.
Unfortunately, there have been some unexpected delays in getting the new portal operational, we apologize to you for this inconvenience, and ask for your patience. The new portal is expected to be functional in early 2021. At that time, an email will go out to all members informing them that the portal is open.
