b) Provide an independent forum for an interchange of ideas and data developed within wetland science in the South Central Region.
c) Develop and promote wetland science as a distinct discipline within the Region.
d) Promote and evaluate the educational, scientific, and technological development and advancement of all branches of wetland science and practice within the Region.
e) Further the knowledge of wetland resources and encourage wetland protection, restoration, and stewardship within the Region.
